We sell yarn doll kits so that children and adults can spend quality time together learning and having fun. Children learn about our country's past while enjoying the pride that comes from knowing they made something themselves.
These doll kits are for sale in various museum stores around the country or they can be ordered through this website.
Everything you need to make the doll shown in the picture is provided in the kit, except for scissors and pins or tape that will hold the pattern in place on the fabric. Also, we suggest you use a regular needle and thread or a dot of super glue to attach the buttons to those dolls that have them because the needle and yarn that come with the kit are too large for the button holes. Otherwise, all materials are provided in the kit. Contents include body yarn, hair yarn, sewing yarn, blunt needle, all fabric for the clothing, illustrations, instructions, and patterns. Some things that are also included with certain dolls are hats; fishing poles with line, hook, and "worm;" buttons; hats; flag and pole.
If a child is old enough to braid, she or he can make our yarn dolls with minimal adult supervision.
So slow down, get cozy with your kid, and step back into a simpler time.
