Woman sews solely to give


GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- You could call her a cross between Mrs. Claus and Santa's elves; a woman who sews solely to give.

Judy Capelle sews up to a dozen outfits a day to put on Barbie dolls.

This week, she donated two boxes of clothes to "Toys for Tots."

Capelle says she wants every little girl to share in something she experienced as a child.

"I can remember getting doll clothes and putting them on and taking them off and putting them on and taking them off and changing their outfits 20 times a day," she said.

As for why she does it, she says that she's a grandma, and that's what grandmas do.
