I made these with my partner for our little nieces. They have become really obsessed with the way they look even though they are only 2 and 4 so we wanted to give them something to play with other than barbies or bratz. Reclaim the cloth doll!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Wow!  Those are a great compromise for a fashion doll that isn't vapid or physically ridiculous!  Making the outfits must've been great fun, too!

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I LOATHE Barbies and Bratz dolls with a passion. I love cloth dolls and these ones are gorgeous- I love their eyes, so much personality in them. And another great thing about these is they are soft and huggable, and I'm sure as your nieces grow up the dolls will become treasured relics of their childhood because they were specially made for them.
