My Tammy doll

Several years ago, I made a cloth doll to look like our daughter, Tammy. It's not precisely accurate in proportions, but I made little black yarn curls and a few freckles sprinkled across her nose. I had made a dress for her first birthday party so I cut it down to fit the doll, then added her little gold baby ring on a ribbon around the doll's neck, and her white satin baby shoes. I won a ribbon at the doll show, but it's sure a one-of-a kind doll. I think my daughter will treasure it when I'm gone.

I love homemade rag dolls. There is something very personal and special about them. This one is gorgeous!

@1creekgirl I may try my hand at making a doll this winter. I've always loved rag dolls. After all, they are not made of plastic!

Thanks Anja, I didn't have a pattern so she's not exactly proportioned right.

nice :) you create a memory with your daughter and the doll , you whisper something you love her to remember in her life and give her the doll , and ask her to keep it a secret between 3 of you :) and you will place a good mark in her memory :)
