Yesterday post included a picture of a fabric collection that reminded me of one of my favorite Pinterest boards, which is all about paper dolls. I loved playing paper dolls and, since they were relatively cheap, Santa could afford them.
I loved playing dress up with the dolls' clothes and really enjoyed making more clothes for them. I'd trace the outline of the clothes that came with the doll and used the basic outline to embellish new fashions.
A few times I forgot to add the tabs (which never really worked) and had to tape tabs on. Of course, the outcome was a mess, but that didn't seem to matter.
I don't remember this particular ballerina, but I do remember having a ballet themed set, which I especially loved because for a while I wanted to learn ballet. I can remember sitting on the front porch reading a book on ballet and practicing the stance and movements. I was much better at making clothes for the ballerina than dancing like her!
What about you? Do these paper dolls bring memories back? For more paper, doll memories visit my board.
