Rag Doll Making

Home-sewn rag dolls

Lifelike rag dolls are becoming scarce in the children's doll market that is dominated by molded plastic pieces. Hand-crafted fabric dolls are more costly to manufacture than molded plastic, so that is why sewing your own rag dolls for the little girls in your life may be the next hobby on your list. Rag dolls are soft all over and therefore more cuddly than dolls made from plastic. They also help encourage imaginative play by avoiding the beauty stereotypes that are a risk with plastic dolls that exaggerate human ideals of beauty.
