Frannie, over at the Mary Jane's Farm Farmgirl Connection has generously offered to teach a group of us gals to make rag dollies. I couldn't wait to get started, so I embroidered a few little aprons for my "girls." Fabric is unbleached muslin. I just used regular old DMC embroidery floss. Went to WalMart today to buy some other dolly making stuff--some cotton osnaberg (like a loose-weave muslin), more muslin (unbleached and "tea dyed"), a bit of burlap (never worked with it before--don't know if I'll like it), and stuffing. Also scored some $2.00/yard poly/cotton for cowboy shirts. Yay!
