My mom made these dolls out of old feed sacks and scraps of slothes. All dolls are hand sewn and stuffed, all clothes are handmade, and each doll(except one) has a gold dollar coin as their heart, a birth certificate and a personality all it's own. The one doll without a gold dollar coin was the last one she made and she put in a pendant that has mom's name, birthdate and her right thumbprint all in gold. I thought they were the coolest things! Here are a few pics!
Each one has this on their behind, too-
HB for Hill Babies
The little sacks on their wrists has their birth certificate in it. . Here is a pic of mom putting them all back in the OLD suitcase she keeps them in-
They all have "country names also. This one is "Oney"
Not the best pic of him, but you can see the fly on his nose.
Hope you guys ernjoy them. She made them to look like the ones she played with as a kid. I think they are awesome!!

Those are so cool, Botesbabe! I love them! What a great thing to leave to your kids! So much love, thought, and effort put into them - not to mention creativity! A truly priceless gift!
Thanks so much for sharing them - they were fun to look at. They reminded me of dolls I used to play with, too. Please tell your mom, that she is so original, to do something like that! Sounds like a cool lady, who really loves her kids!
