Two months ago, I went on a plastic toy throwing rampage after receiving the news that my one-year-old daughter tested high on her lead screen (a false positive, thankfully). As a consequence, I was determined to rectify our questionable toy situation by introducing only handmade natural toys. But where to begin? When I came across an Instagram post by Jess Brown about her new book, "The Making of a Rag Doll," I was inspired to give it a try. After all, who better than I to craft my daughter's first rag doll, and who better to learn from than the ultimate dollmaker, Jess Brown?
