The girls got dolls for Christmas. I found these at Michael’s. They’re similar to the American Girl dolls but they only cost $16 each. We waited for a pattern sale and bought several patterns to make clothes for their dolls. They pick a pattern and fabric and watch me cut the pieces out. Then they sit on my lap and learn while we sew the clothes. Ruth accepted limited guidance with her fabric choices. Hannah would not. Still they turned out well and we’re ready to plan more.
