During pioneer times, money was scarce and toys were a luxury that most families could not afford to purchase. Dolls tended to be handmade. Every family generally had a rag basket – and so dolls were often fashioned out of the scraps on hand.  Children will make their own no-sew pioneer rag doll to take home.
