Toymaking with Children has a very simple doll that you could make will a playsilk, you just stuff some wool into the middle to form a head, and tie it off with some string, and knot some arms. I made Kaelynn one like this when she was around 1, a smaller playsilk than a 35" would probablly be better, in a very pale, soft colour, ours was just slightly yellow. It was her first baby, and even our nieces and nephews used to fancy plastic dolls like it after some initial jokiness about its unformed state. They rocked it in the cradle etc. etc.
