raffia dolls

Emmy and I are reading the Little House books.  Laura has a corn-husk doll and we decided to try to make one.  My mom made one with me and it hung around for a LONG time but unfortunately it is gone now.  I specifically remember soaking the husks and using a needle to rip pieces for hair.  It was fun.  I didn't have any corn-husk but I did have raffia paper and directions so we took a morning and made a raffia paper doll.  It looks very similar to corn-husk.  Emmy LOVES it and has barely put it down!
