Mrs. Theobald told the children that she started the hobby five years ago when her parents were given a pair of, dolls for their wedding anniversary. Equipment used to make the dolls include a potato peeler, paring knife, pliers and spoon. Mrs. Theobald explained that Roman apples are used for the dolls' heads and hands because they shrivel less than other types of apples. After the apple heads age for about three weeks, sealer is applied to preserve them, she said. The dolls, she remarked, are held together with wire. MRS.
