There are so many projects to make from dolls to give to your daughter to dolls to make for the adult collector. The faces in particular were very well done, I just love love this book! I bought it and there were not any reviews, which for me means I usually do not get a product because I would rather not take my chances getting a book where I can only see the cover, if I really wanted it I would drive to the bookstore which is a bit away, so… taking a chance I bought this book through Amazon hoping it wouldn’t stink. Believe me it is really good, I have been making cloth dolls for a few years so I have no idea if it would be too complicated for an absolute beginner, but I think if you are reasonably intelligent you will be able to do these projects 🙂 Happy dollmaking!

MACLEAN (Massachusetts) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Cloth Dolls (Paperback) I’ve been making dolls since I was 11, and this is the book I’ve been looking for all my life. Worth three times what you pay. The cover does not do it justice. It has soft sculpture faces that are beautiful and natural. Usually soft sculpture dolls look like old people, trolls or are distorted. There is a baby doll that I am going to double size to make it the size of a real baby, so I can have it wear old clothes. The clothes are also beautiful and easy. Make yourself an heirloom.

This review is from: Cloth Dolls (Paperback) This is a book of patterns and tips. The dolls are all virtually the same, chubby baby-faced toddlers. There is a male and female version. The infant is the same as the toddler but can not stand. The adult (pictured on the cover) is just slightly thiner and longer then the children. If you are looking for variety, these dolls are pretty much the same (they all look related to the one on the cover) and they are all conservatively or classicly styled. I recommend the book for those interested in the learning the basics of makeing a “baby doll”. If you want any other style of cloth doll (such as artisan) you will be disappointed in the constraints of the styling and you will be forced to find inspiration for your imagination elsewhere. Probably more like 3 stars. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
