Re: How to Make Hollyhock Dolls

<< They are the most magical dolls in the world. >>

Norma worried that providing the detailed instructions on making hollyhock
dolls was too far removed from the main subject of the iris list.  For anyone
who might think so, think also of the fact that Norma's instructions may
enable some list members to bring great delight to some little girls (and
boys) who might otherwise never know this magic. And there is never enough
magic in this world!

There is a shortcut way to make these dolls---
Take one bud and break the stem off---this is the head.
Take one flower with the stem.
Insert the stem of the flower into the base of the bud---if you hold the bud
you will see where to insert it.
Voila! A simple doll.  Not as nice as Norma's dolls, but easy and fast.
