Does anyone remember this, two years ago? When I showed those beautiful dolls to my mother, she knew how much work I had put into them, and therefore asked me, "Are you going to let them play outside with them?!" I told her yes, because I think children's toys are objects they project themselves on to, and conduits to work out their own world.
My girls love it when I sew them dolls, whether I spend months or just days making them. Josephine especially loved the doll pictured above, and wow, did it become a projection of herself. In fact, the doll underwent a total transformation:
I don't know how long it will last looking this cute, but I do know it will be loved.
