The Original Ugly Dolls

Barbie and Mao Tse-Tung go to the prom
Sammy and Lillies of the Valley Kiddle take care of their baby, Marty Feldman

When I was 10 years old I started making dolls for my younger sister. I would use old clothes for the materials, my Mom's pantyhose for the stuffing, and usually the eyes were old buttons. I always had the intention of making cute dolls, but they never quite turned out that way. My sister ended up with Marty Feldman,Sammy Davis Jr. and Mao Tse-Tung dolls playing with her Raggedy Ann and Andy. Sadly, these dolls have been lost over the years. I am afraid that if I tried to recreate these dolls today I would end up making something cute.
