Throw-Back Thursday: My Little Doll

Today's throw-back thursday is this adorable little doll from when I was a little girl. I know it's Friday - but I've been sewing like crazy and typed it last night thinking it was Wednesday night! Oh well!

She sits on my craft room shelf and inspires me to create that childlike joy in all I make at my sewing machine! The sad thing is - I can't remember her name. My twin sister has one too (maybe had one too - I'm not sure she knows where it is).
This is one of those toys or dolls I look at often and say "They just don't make things the way they used to!" She has velcro on the inside tips of her hands so when you put them together she would be praying. The hat didn't come off, because her hair didn't cover her head. She has some craft pellets in her arms, legs and belly, so she would always sit just right! She was sewn so well!

Oh I just love looking at her. Do you have a favorite doll or toy from your childhood that you still have? Share your story in the comments below! Inquiring minds want to know! Have a great weekend - I'm still sewing for this awesome project - I just can't wait to tell you all about it!

I have a bear, he is definitely well loves, and his stuffing and his "beans" or "pellets" that helped weigh him down have mysteriously disappeared, maybe they dissolved/ tears i can see. He is the best though!

My first visit to your site - love it. I have almost the same doll from when I was little. Mine is pink and has little pom pons down her front and on her feet. The eyelet trim on her hat and sleeves is so sweet. She sits on my daughter's bookshelf now, looking adorable.
