Mending A Broken Heart Making Dolls out of used T shirts

I started a page on my website called Mending a Broken Heart.

As we travel through life we are destined to lose people we love. There are numerous aspects of loss that are hard for many to move through.  One aspect I have chosen to address on my website page: “Mending a Broken heart” deals with the physical materials left behind like clothing and possessions. When I’m grieving I’m really helped by keeping my hands busy and my mind quiet.

 Often it is hard to know what to do with the clothing left behind by loved ones.  In this project I used two tee shirts.  With one I made the doll’s body and used the other for the dress.  I then gave these dolls to family and friends instead of just packing the tee shirts away.


  1. what a beautiful and sentimental thing to do! i am sure they will cherish these dolls. Not long after my father passed away, i used his old clothes to make xmas stockings for my entire family. they LOVE them! ;)

  2. What a wonderful idea something of him is with all of you every Christmas,a very thoughtful thing to do for your family.
