Do you remember the Hollie Hobbie dolls that were soooo popular during the 70ies ? My sister and I made one from an old sheat of cotton and made knitted clothes for them.
These days, there seems to be a revival of those sort of dolls. In her book 'My rag doll' by Corinne Crasbercu, the hollie hobbie doll has become a real little princess. I tried out some of her patterns, and this is the result :
|a gorgeous blonde|
|now with my hat !|
|a prima ballerina in her tutu|
|brown pigtails are cute|
|2 skeins of mohair for the hair !|
|she is ever so soft|
I think they will prefer to be 'on display' rather than be played with....
Oh, and remember Sarah Kay's Hollie Hobbie ?
