I have been wanting to share this with you all and Please pass the info on to others..
I had been hearing about a project called "Comfort Dolls"http://comfortdolls.blogspot.com/
But I thought it was a one time thingie and as always I was coming up to late:
BUT the more I read about it the more I really wanted to do this,,
After all reaching out to others with our creations in love is the BEST
of all we could ever hope for!!!
Any ways I emailed Pat Winters who is the Founder of Comfort Dolls..http://comfortdolls.blogspot.com/
Here is the email I received from Pat.. (Who is one of the nicest people you ever want to meet by the way)
Thank you for the nice comment on the comfort doll project. It is open to all. You can create any kind of doll you wish. There are some sites with free patterns like Rhonda Kivett's. I will be adding free pattern sites to the blog. I just created it yesterday,so I will be working on it a lot,hopefully filling with lots of info and pictures of past donors dolls.
There is no time limit,or type of doll. I only ask that it be 6" or smaller for the recipient to keep it in her purse or with her if she wanted. Some dolls were made from wine corks,some from felted yarn,some cats,rabbits,goddess,etc. You are the creator.
We are on our seventh dozen already. Amazing!
Thanks for your interest in the comfort doll project.
