Simple Huipil Baby Doll - Santa Catarina Palopo

I hand-sew these dolls from used huipiles I purchase here in Guatemala. A huipil is the traditional blouse worn by Guatemalan women and is sometimes spelled guipil.

 

These dolls are about 9" long and, in addition to the huipil fabric, are made using felt, embroidery thread, and polyfill.
