Homemade rag/cloth doll
It was hard to resist the temptation to sew a rag doll (there are so many fabulous examples out there!). Especially when the younger daughter wants badly a doll she saw in her sister's kindergarten... She loves her new doll, fortunately.
I used fabric scraps, kitchen clothes and yellow yarn for hair. How to make it see this and this articles at eHow, for example. Google can be even better.
