Hey I was hoping for a little bit of kind help...

Sometime in 1975ish my mom got a magazine with dolls on the cover, and the instruction to make more inside.

She made the doll. I loved the doll for the last (gulp) +30 years. I still sleep with it on my bed.. no teasing please!

Anyways, my neice, is in awe of this doll and wants one like it. I would like to get a old copy of the magazine to give to my mom so we could make it for her...

Here's the clues I have been given..
It was a magazine with multiple doll on the cover.
It was after July 1974 (my arrival) but before July 1976 (brother's arrival)
Mom thinks it was Family Circle or something like that..
I will post pictures of the doll when I get home to take the picture... Remember no teasing please!
She is a tall doll about 3 feet tall with yarn hair and embroidered eyes and face...

Please, does anyone know where I could look for this? I tried e-bay and a few other online sources... No luck so far....

Go to the library.  A reference librarian should be able to help you use the Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature (it's probably even online now!) to help find articles that are possibilities.  Then you can interlibrary loan the articles and hopefully be successful in your search.

Cool!  I made the Best of 2009 twice!   Check 'em out!

I feel like a dork.. I should have thought of that...

I said I would post the photos, so I will anyways..

Nancy Noodle is a well loved doll of 30ish years... Who knows what sort of fabric it is, but the acrylic yarn hair and everything has worn like iron..

here's the link to my gallery, I'm too new to post the actual picture in the conversation.

She's very well kept for 30+.  I made my dd a ragdoll whenshe was 2 and 4 years later she's looking pretty haggard (ie missing eye, no mouth and few straggly hairs left on her poor head) *sigh* maybe it's just that my kids are animals  Grin
Happy pattern hunting!
