Sewing With Nancy

Nancy's Corner - Poppi Dolls

5:31

In South Africa the skill of sewing shweshwe poppis-the African term for dolls--benefits both children and doll makers. Elizabeth Schell talks with Nancy via Skype about the poppis project. These cute little dolls are made with 100% cotton shweshwe discharge print fabrics from South Africa. The dolls are based on children's drawings at a malnutrition and rehabilitation preschool in Zola, Soweto.
