    Clothdolls for Textile Artists Book

    This is a good book for any doll maker. However to it is an advanced doll making book. Contains 2 doll form patterns, information on making hands to me this is the hardest part of the doll. Even with this book the technique is hard. This book is aimed more at the finishing of the doll than the preparation. Extremely fixed on the finishing of the doll with clothing and techniques. However an all over good book.

    This is one book all dollmakers need in their library. The cost is worth the information.
