Stephanie ZvirinFor stitchers tired of making dresses, placemats, curtains, etc., here's just the thing--a nicely illustrated guide to rag-doll making filled with charming projects even novices can handle. In fact, several are easy enough for kids, with just a little adult help, to make. The book presents a number of full-size doll patterns, each with a checklist summarizing directions and a list of necessary materials. Photographs of finished projects and suggested fabrics, yarns, and gewgaws complement the drawings that illustrate the clear, step-by-step instructions. The classic Raggedy Ann and Andy aren't here, but there are lots of fetching alternatives to them--a sweet, two-headed, upside-down doll with costumes for night and day; an angel with a generous skirt meant to hide a child's pajamas; and keepsake dolls that may be fashioned from scraps of lace from a wedding gown or beads from a favorite family brooch.
