This Old DollMarch 2, 2006
She was my friend Crystal’s doll as she was growing up. Crystal has since given it to her daughter. And they asked me if I could do some repair work on her. I have experience making dolls but I have never done repair work. So this is an exciting challenge for me.
Her cheek fabric is worn through, her boots have holes in them and there are a few stains I’d like to remove. She has a lovely little dress on but apparently the dress belongs to someone else and needs to be replaced too.
Anyone in blogland have any tips for me?
I think the first thing I would like to do is give her a nice bath. In a concealed area- her back- I tried a little Dishwasher gel that has some bleach in it on some stains and it did remove some of the stains without changing the color of the fabric or damaging it noticably.
