  9. I was so happy to see this article in the latest issue. My 3-year old daughter has finally realized that beside his older brother's cars there are other fantastic toys to play with, like dolls. She has fallen in love with her Barbies and thanks to this great article, I have some good ideas how to dress her favorite dolls now and have a blast making them at the same time. Thank you!

    Absolutely love the idea. I have quite a few vintage hankies from my mom and my great-aunt Fannie(born 1897) She lived with us the last 2 years of her life. She was 17 days away from her 105th birthday when she died. She went out to eat and to church with us until the last 3 mos. of her life. She was amazing. We have a brand new GREATgranddaughter born in May. It will be such fun creating some of those special outfits for her. Of course, she won't know Aunt Fannie but her mom knew her quite well.
