Paper Dolls

I collect paper dolls so I love this set.
I make these pockets for the sick children at Ronald MacDonald House they are called "Bed Buddies" They can not have buttons glitter or things that are dangerous  I leave 1/3 of  them uncolored ,some children like to  color them They have to be cut out as they can not have sharp tools I can make sets on the cricut and stamp on printed paper for speed as I try to do 50 per month  On this one there is a half circle as a pocket to hold the small items behind the dresses .
