Doll MakerPosted: August 26, 2009
Everyone has their cabbage patch kid, their raggedy ann or andy; along with teddy bears and blankies, dolls mark one of the nostalgic icons of childhood. As with most things, the best of these items came lovingly handmade and was carried around until it fell apart.
