My sweet Mama has been making handmade dolls ever since I was a kid. She would donate them to our catholic school, for the annual fundraising "bazaar" (which is called a Fall Festival these days.)
The children in our family lovingly received one of these dolls from my Mama.
See her shop on Etsy! Just copy & paste:
Aren't they precious, my great niece, Stella (photo 1) and my cousin's newest grandchild, Sofia (photo 2.) Beautiful babies!
