when I was a little girl, my grandmother used to tell me that the reason why I see cloth dolls with no face, was because it was a Polish tradition to not give dolls faces.
I was at a Group event a few years ago, and I had a cloth doll that I had made with me, that had no face. People asked why, I told them 'it's a polish doll'
you wouldn't believe the way some reacted, telling me that I was a sick woman to insult the polish people like that, claiming that I was ignorant to insinuate that the polish are dumb in such a way.
it didn't matter what I told them, they didn't believe me about the tradition.
I can't be the only one who knows of this tradition, anyone else have relatives that told them about it?

Probably because if you give a doll a face it becomes a woodoo doll:P
I haven't found any Polish tradition. But there is an american one. So those people could be wiser:P
