Description

Throughout history, toy-making supplies were limited, so in the past, mothers made simple toys from household or farm materials. Dolls for young girls were fashioned from corn husks, yarn or handkerchiefs. Most of the time these dolls were made to occupy their fidgety offspring. Learn how to make handkerchief dolls at Dudley Farm; also known as church dolls, pew babies and prayer dolls. Take home a simple handkerchief doll.
