Making Fantasy Cloth Dolls Reviews
I have been sewing and crafting for many years with experience in making bridal gowns to Barbie doll clothes, etc and although I love the look of these dolls I have yet to get past attempting to make
I bought several doll making books. They are all quite useful. But one negative point wood be that almost each book contents will give only different decoration variants of the doll featured at the cover. I still bought them because each book will give some other basic info, missed in another book. So altogether they will provide a full range of doll making wisdom. I also understood that attending a workshop is a basic need. Once you have attended one or two workshops, you will make the most out of the book you got....
I was looking for something different for a doll pattern and boy did I find it. Anyone can follow this book and in no time be great at it. AND the moon is the limit with where a person go with the different styles of dolls.
I am new at this craft and needed a book like this: easy to understand and step by step instructions.
Interesting book. I a lot of quilting type sewing, and thought it would be fun to expand my sewing adventures. I have not yet tried to make these wonderful dolls so I cannot attest to the quality of the directions here. All that said, I am glad I bought the book. I can have already absorbed good information.
I love all the ideas and doll samples in this book. The instructions seem to be relatively easy, I have completed a few of the dolls and am very pleased.
This book, along with her first one, "Introduction to Making Cloth Dolls", was indispensable for my very first cloth doll attempt. The photos and instructions clearly show what needs to be done at each step of the doll construction. I liked that the patterns given in the book of the projects featured are actual size - no adjusting necessary. And how the parts can be interchangeable. I took a fairy doll's body from the first book and combined with the head, arms, and tail of the mermaid doll from the second book with minor adjustments. You can follow her pattern & instructions exactly to make a doll just like hers or experiment to come up with your own. There's enough instructions in the book to get you started on a doll of your own design if you're determined and imaginative. I've really enjoyed both of her books.
Got this book & another by Jan Horrox & can hardly wait to get started making a doll 😀
