I've been making dolls for years. In fact I was still playing with dolls when I was in 5th or 6th grade. I wasn't playing house or anything like that- I was dressing the ones that I had or I was making new dolls out of anything I could find. My sisters and I used to make these flower fairy dolls out of hollyhocks and toothpicks. I made dolls out of yarn, paper, sticks, socks...the only thing about the word doll is it makes you think of blonde haired blue eyed baby doll- and that's not at all what I make. I wish I had a different word for them.
