Courage Rag Dolls How to Make

Courage Rag Dolls How to Make

by Dorothea Hall

Editorial Reviews

Stephanie Zvirin
For 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.
