Paper Dolls... Rock-A-Baby Gift Ideas

Paper dolls are figures cut out of paper or thin card, with separate clothes, also made of paper, that are usually held onto the dolls by paper folding tabs. They may be a figure of a person, animal or inanimate object. 
Paper dolls have been inexpensive children's toys for almost two hundred years. Today, many artists are turning paper dolls into an art form.

Paper dolls have been used for advertising, appeared in magazines and newspapers, and covered a variety of subjects and time periods. 

Order these special little packs and help your child develop a creative, imaginative mind with something different. They have become highly sought-after collectibles, especially as vintage paper dolls become rarer due to the limited lifespan of paper objects. Paper dolls are still being created today.

Crochet Revolution: Waste Not!

Waste Not - All those little pesky bits left over after projects are finished drove me up the wall. I meticulously rolled them up and landed up with hundreds of little balls just short of full rows in most larger projects. 

Your options are plentyfull such as Crochet Flowers or Mini Projects. I hopped online and after a walk-through to get inspiration opted for some baby bits and funky decor. This was the end-result... and I still have about another 120 little balls left! Going to turn them into Baby HeadBands and Flowers.
