Kitchen Doll

You will need: permanent felt-tip markers, round potholder, dishcloth, ribbon, small dish towel, needle and thread, and colored yarn.

  1. 1.

    With felt-tip markers draw a face on round potholder.

  2. 2.

    Roll up dishcloth tightly for doll’s arms, and tie each end with a ribbon bow.

  3. 3.

    Use dish towel for dress. Lay towel out full length; fold each long side toward center so edges meet in center. Then fold towel in half. Insert rolled dishcloth inside fold (the shoulders) and, with needle and thread, take a few stitches to hold it in place. Tack on head the same way. With piece of colored yarn tie bow around waist.
