Old Black Doll I found while I was antiquing .....

I`m so pleased at this doll I found antiquing today. She`s about 13" tall, made from a shiny black cotton, and her dress is probably original as it fits pretty well. Probably an old feedsack made into a dress. Imagine if today we had something like feedsacks, used 1st for utilitarian purposes and then can be made into clothing or quilts. Can`t think of anything today that`s comparable to it. But wouldn`t it fit in today in our recycling mentality.
