SEWING WITH NANCY

Nancy's Corner - Poppi Dolls

  • Aired: 12/11/2011
  • 05:31
  • Rating: TV-G
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.
