Details of swap:
A Topsy-Turvy doll is a double-ended doll, typically featuring two opposing characters. They are traditionally American cloth folk dolls which fuse a white girl child with a black girl child at the hips. Precise facts about their origins are rare, but as late as the 1950s, "Topsy and Eva" dolls were marketed by Sears, Montgomery Ward, and The Babyland Rag company (aka Bruckner).

You will craft one medium item. Extras are allowed and must be discussed with your partner prior to sending.

are we good for the inside-out versions as well? or do we need to stick to upside-down topsy-turvys?

Inside out is good too as long as your partner is ok with it! Do you want to post the link?

Interesting...I'll have to think about this one - or more accurately, what would interest me as a pair for a doll....

Your welcome "Sarasmile". So glad this is a go. I'll have to figure out what kind of Topsy Turvy doll I would like. I'll get my questionnaire done in a day or so. So glad we have a long crafting time.
