A reader asked about the face size for these baby dolls.
I measured and took a picture- I think her face is about 3 inches.
I still don't know where to buy the baby hands and face but if you can find them, the 3 inch faces.
The sellers where I bought the hands and faces are no longer in business and I did many online searches and could not find the parts for sale any where
Aren't these sweet little baby dolls?
My mom crocheted them, just like her mom crocheted them. My mom has one at her house that Grandma made, probably 40 years ago. Whenever mom's cleaning help comes and brings her little girl with her, the little girl liked to play with that doll. Mom wanted to make her one so I went on an internet search to find the plastic face and hands that are needed. They came in lots and I think Mom ended up with 10 or 12 sets.
Now that a granddaughter has come along, Mom made a baby for her. Nina had one of Grandma's crocheted dolls when she was a little girl and she played with it until it was worn out.
Can you see that the baby holds a bottle in one hand and it fits in her mouth, just like a real baby drinking a bottle?
The little blanket that wraps around the baby is attached too.
Mom brought these 3 dolls for 3 other little girls here in Oklahoma.
