The Retired Mama said...

I loved paper dolls. They use to come in the Sunday Comics in the paper, so I got a new doll every week. Of course the new one was needed because a paper doll just does not last very long. I would love to make some Flats for my granddaughters.

patricia said...

It was a paper doll neighborhood for us in the 50's. High fashion, Betsy McCall from the magazine and my very best memory--The Lennon Sisters. Hours and hours with them. Still are fascinated when I see them to this day!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Yes I did play with paper dolls, and LOVED them. It was always so much fun to change the dresses on the girl paper dolls. Thanks for the giveaway. Flats looks so fun!

Grandma Barbara said...

Back in the day I was really into paper dolls. I, too, played with the Betsy McCall ones but my fave was a set of The Lennon Sisters dolls.

I've liked Shannon's FB page for a long time and Shannon for longer than that!! Great giveaway!!!

A.J. Dub. (Amy) said...

My grandmother gave us paper dolls on occasion and our favorites were the Victorian ladies.(I think they were Victorian anyway) The dresses were gorgeous and the undergarments were corsets and bloomers. :) Great fun!
Thanks Rachel and Fabric N Quilts!

Jada Graff said...

I never played with paper dolls! I always would get them and cut them out, and then I'd be too rough and end up tearing them. I'd love to make some for my son though :)

Jessica Christensen said...

Oh, my gosh! I used to make my own hand drawn (read: ugly) paper dolls. Sometimes I would cut models out of the JC Penney catalog and use them as paper dolls. Unfortunately, a lot of my "dolls" looked the same because the same model was used repeatedly in that catalog . . .

Fun fabric!

Cecilia said...

Yes, I did play with paper s when I was young. My granddaughters would love this. Thanks for the chance to win.

Steven and Ginger said...

Yes, loved playing with paper dolls when I was young. Cute fabric!

Laura V said...

I am relatively young, but my grandma thought that it was very important to do things to stimulate my imagination other than watch TV. She helped me make some paper dolls when I was little. I do have to admit that I did make myself some New Kids on the Block paper dolls from magazine cut outs (grandma's paper dolls needed a date to the dance!).

Janet M said...

Yes I love paper dolls and their clothes and I still collect them! This is a fun giveaway! Thanks for the chance.

sure did make paper dolls - they used to come in the McCalls magazine every month - one or two "dolls" to cut out and about 2 or 3 outfits too - if you wanted to make the dolls sturdier you could glue them to thin cardboard - count me in please on the give away - lovely blog you have.

This Dog's Mom said...

I loved paper dolls! I had a huge box of them until one day when my cat decided to pee in the box. Despite my protests that some dolls and outfits were salvageable, my mother made me throw out the whole thing. I started my collection again, but I mourned those lost dolls.

qltmom9 said...

Yes, I had Barbie paperdolls as a child and I wore them out playing with them. I kept them in a shoe box and spent MANY hours happily redressing them.

scottylover said...

I was a huge fan of paper dolls. I loved punching out all the perforated outfits. I had magnetic sets and plastic cling sets. But my favorite was designing my own dolls and clothes.

Kim said...

Never got a chance to play with them. I am sad to say I don't know if my parents knew what they were.
I am also a fan of Fabrics 'n Quilts.

Marlene said...

I LOVED playing with paper dolls!!!

bee said...

yup - played with paper dolls! these Flats look awesome.

kate said...

I sure did play with Paper Dolls. I remember my mom buying a booklet type of thing where you would punch or cut out the dolls from the cover (front and back), which was a stiffer paper, and shiny. It had a red background, I remember! The clothes were on the pages inside, and it taught us to be VERY careful with those delicate pieces of paper, because once the little tabs ripped, that was that, for like another year! Funny how I remember each year's Christmas and birthday GIFT from my parents. My 5 siblings and I would use our allowance monies to buy each other one gift too. So much less then, but so much more!

I certainly did play with paper dolls. I used to make them from cardboard, draw on a face, and then dress them with whatever I found. I had some with birdseed dresses, and Mom used to let me take items such as rice and macaroni to use on them as well. Gosh, you brought back a good memory for me that I hadn't thought of since my childhood. Thank you and thanks you for the giveaway. I'd love to win the kit.

Becky said...

I loved playing with paper dolls! The ripped tabs started many arguments between my sister and I. ;)

Elaine said...

Not only did I play with paper dolls as a kid....my mother and I designed our own dresses. Later in life she developed Alzheimers and I got the old box of Dolly Dingle paper dolls out and we played a lot. There were days when she would actually smile. Precious memories. I hope to share making paper dolls with my 2 granddaughters. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.

French 75 said...

Back in the '50s, Mom subscribed to McCall's magazine. Every month I looked forward to the arrival of that magazine so I could cut out Betsy McCall. I loved playing with those paper dolls.

It's nice to see a revival of the concept of paper dolls. I love the little carrying case so all the pieces are contained.

Rebecca said...

Yes, I played paper dolls. And now I get to do it again with my girls :)

lbarnes said...

Hi, Rachel. I absolutely adored paper dolls as a little girl. My favorite part actually was cutting them out! Probably why I like applique so much today. I have a little 3-1/2 yr old grandaughter who I would love to make these "flats" dolls for. I've been looking at these designs for a while now.

Cheryl @ Sew Can Do said...

Loved paper dolls; they were one of my favorite things. I remember being so careful cutting them out just perfectly!

bairdmtn said...

I played with the Betsy McCall paper dolls from the magazine! I always went to the "beauty parlor" with my mother as a kid and the beautician would save those magazines for me so I could have the paper dolls from them! I never really played with dolls, just the Betsy McCall paper dolls and Barbie! I also sewed "clothes" by hand from my Mama's scraps for Barbie! YES!!! Shannon is wonderful and if I lived closer to her we would be the best of friends, too!!

Lesley said...

I loved playing with paper dolls. I don't remember coloring them myself, but who can forget cutting them out? I didn't like when my little hands cut the tabs off!

I Absolutely loved paper dolls as a child. I always managed to tear something when I was punching them out and that droves young OCD self crazy.

I did love paper dolls as a kid. I remember one ladies magazine, maybe Redbook, that had them in to cut out. I liked Fabric n More's Facebook page. Thanks!

Yep, I was always begging for every new paper doll I saw that I didn't already have! I was really excited when I saw the new fangled clingy types!!! I'll never forget the way they smelled when I took them out of the package. I still have some paper dolls that are in their original packages!!! Thanks for the awsome chance to win these. I would love to have them....

Oh yes, I loved my cut out dolls. I would love to pass this on to my Grandchildren (they are actually my fake Grandchildren that live across the street)We sew together, play bingo and make cookies.

My sister and I loved to play with paper dolls when we were young. I think I cut up every catalog my mother received. When we were lucky to actually get real paper dolls we were in heaven! I have liked Fabric n More's facebook page.

I loved designing my own paper doll clothes. And I loved it when my Dad sang to old song "Paper Doll. "I'm gonna buy a paper doll that I can call my own." Good memories.

I vaguely remember some Disney characters paper dolls. I think it was Beauty and the Beast? Definitely not a normal activity, but I have wanted to make some of these dolls for my daughter since I first saw Flats. I LOVE this collection.

My sister and I LOVED playing with paper dolls when we were little girls. My grandmother had a stack of McCall's magazines and we'd play with Betsy McCall (I think that was her name) for hours. We always looked forward to a new issue when it came out.

Being a child of the 50's of course I played with paper dolls. They were affordable and you could have a large group of girls playing dress up. Thank you for the great giveaway.

Yes, my 5 sisters and I played with paper dolls. And we fought over them too! Thank you for the chance to win the Flats fabric line. I saw the pattern on Moda Bake Shop and I saved it for future use; it is so cute.

I did not play with paper dolls, although I hate to admit it, I did play with dolls :) I also just liked the facebook page :)

I loved paper dolls as a kid. Now that my granddaughter likes them, we glue the paper dolls to foamies craft sheets and then cut them out of that stuff so they are easier to dress and stand up nice.

And I am a fan of fabrics n quilts facebook page. Thanks for the giveaway.
