A Hindu Tale The Jackal stood looking across the river where the crabs lay in the sun on the sand. "Oh," said the Jackal, "if I could only swim, how good those crabs would be! I wish I had a boat or a canoe!" Just then the Camel came ... Read more of The Jackal And The Camel at Children Stories.caInformational Site Network Informational

The Dresses

Source: What Shall We Do Now?: Five Hundred Games And Pastimes
Category: DOLLS' HOUSES AND DOLLS OF CARDBOARD AND PAPER





The dresses are made of sheets of note-paper, the fold of which forms
the shoulder pieces. The doll is laid on the paper, with head and neck
lapping over the fold, and the line of the dress is then drawn a
little larger than the doll. A small round nick to form the collar is
cut between the shoulders of the dress, and a slit is made down the
back through which the doll's head can be passed. After the head is
through it is turned round. (Of course, if the dress is for evening
the place which you cut for the neck must be larger, and in this case
no slit will be needed.) All the details of the dresses, which can be
of original design, or copied from advertisements and fashion plates,
must be drawn in in pencil and afterward painted. Hats, trimmed with
tissue-paper feathers or ribbons, are made of round pieces of
note-paper with a slit in them just big enough for the tip of the
doll's head to go through. The illustrations on pp. 260 and
261 should make everything clear.
