Saige - American Girl Doll of the Year for 2013 - I'm Giving One Away & Make a Corn-husk Doll!

Yes, it is true, on May 15, 2013 I'm giving away one Saige, American Girl Doll of the Year for 2013! You will find all the details about this lovely doll, her "story" and how you can be in the drawing at this link.

There are few girls today who would not absolutely love to have an American Girl doll of their own to love, but while American Girl dolls have been around since 1986, it is quite possible the "first" "American girl doll" was made from corn-husks! Native Americans used dried corn husks to make dolls for little girls to play with and when settlers from Europe arrived on this continent, they quickly learned to make these dolls for their own little girls.

How to make a cornhusk doll. Just like in Little House In The Big Woods.I thought it would be fun to include directions to make your own corn-husk dolls . . . you can use paper ribbon if you can not find corn husks. I looked on Pinterest - of course :-) - and found a doll pattern which I'm happy to share with you. Just follow this link and you'll find easy-to-follow directions for making your own corn-husk dolls! (They would be a very fun Valentine's Day gift for any sweet little girls in your life!)
