Below, please see me with a fun project. Rosemary, from the “You are loved Doll Ministry” donated these cute little Monster Dolls that need to be dressed.  For those of you who do not sew, we could use some dressing done. May made all the monster clothes through out the year and now we get to use them. Thanks May
