I'm not sure how many of you remember this post, but I finally did it. I made dolls to keep the sick little umbilical cords that I saved from both of my girls. I know it's disgusting, but I am so proud of myself for actually doing it and I no longer have dried up scabs in Blondie's jewelry box. Eww!
I saw the templates from the Black Apple Dolls (featured on Martha) and found my motivation since they were so dang cute! As you could guess I had my fair share of cursing and ripping apart seams. One's head got put on backwards and I mindlessly finished Mae's before getting the stump in and had to rip it apart a little, shove the shriveled cord in, and sew her back up.
Of course the girls loved playing with their dolly's just for the afternoon then they were thrown into the toy box to be forgotten about. Don't they look so thrilled with their sick rag dolls?
