My Sunshine Dolls have found a new mission as Prayer Dolls. The concept of the Sunshine Dolls were a pay-it-forward thing. If someone was having a bad day and needed a little "Sunshine" the gift was a smile maker. I had another idea( message?)to make these little hand held dolls into comforting prayer aides. I started making them with the sample scrap fabrics from the discontinued books interior design stores throw away.I Added a firmly stitched on cross and some tactile hair for a get well gift for ill people in the hospital. As with all my art adventures, they continue to change as I make batch after batch. The next round will be going to Bakersfield Memorial Hospital. I'm hoping to get a group of friends at church to help in my mission. I hope that any of my creative friends out there (that's you) will pick up the idea and make prayer dolls for people on your own. I have attached a little card that says, "You're Not Alone", "Pray", "God is Listening". Some of the recipients of the Prayer Dolls have shared with me that they were easier to sleep with in their hospital bed than a rosary. It gives me joy that those little scraps of fabric have been transformed into little bundles of love.
