I love Doorposts! Their charts and books are exactly the practical helps that we need in training our children to be Godly. They even offer Bible- related toys! Well, make that patterns for toys that you make yourself, but fear not! As a qualified representative of the "Craftily Challenged", I can truthfully say that the kits from Doorposts are not too hard to make and really do turn out very beautifully.

Doorposts offers a book entitled Beauty and the Pig, an excellent Bible study tool for both girls and boys. The craft kit I reviewed, the Goldie Doll Kit, goes along with one of the studies in the book. It is based on Proverbs 11:22, "As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion."

This doll is made in the old fashioned "topsy-turvy" style. Goldie is a pretty girl in a calico dress with lace trim. She's so cute! When you flip the doll over, she emerges as a pig, complete with a gold ring in her nose ("jewel of gold"). Piggie, as we call her, wears a ragged-looking dress with patches on it. The Goldie doll is a lovely toy that is sure to be a favorite.

The Goldie Doll Kit includes everything you need to make this charming doll, except stuffing, needle, and thread. You can sew on your machine or by hand. I must say that the instruction booklet for this project is really superb. My sewing skills are limited to mending and sewing simple projects. I was never taught how to follow a pattern. However, the instructions for the Goldie Doll Kit are so clear and easy to understand, even I can do it, and with beautiful results!

Try the Goldie Doll Kit. It's fun to make and fun to play with! Don't forget to check out the other outstanding products from Doorposts.
