Overview

A doll is an alter ego, a collectable, a loveable huggable best friend who always listens. Nothing makes a doll more special than being handmade. Now kids can make dolls for themselves, their friends, for bazaars or as gifts. This book shows how to make eleven very different dolls from a very simple, one hour crib toy to a weekend project, with simple step-by-step instructions, each accompanied by a full color photo.

  • Make cuddly tiny dolls, ornaments a lace doll filled with potpourri, a granny mop doll, an up-to-date Cool Dude rag doll, a life-size baby dall, even an amazing double doll. Turn it one way and she's Little Red Riding Hood. Turn it the other way and he's the Big Bad Wolf.
  • Easy-to-get, inexpensive, up-to-date materials — a pair of stretchy gloves, a cotton sock, a facecloth, panti-hose and a mop head — are cleverly designed to eliminate most sewing.
  • For the sewing beginner, this is a fun, rewarding way to learn.
  • More than 200 color photos!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-The projects in the book range from angels made of paper ribbon resembling cornhusks to a double-headed Little Red Riding Hood/Big Bad Wolf story doll. They will be adored by a wide age range of youngsters, but cannot be created by just any kid. In order to look like the attractive finished products, they require substantial skills in sewing, reading, organizing, and planning. A sewing machine figures prominently in many cases, as does a glue gun and a hot iron. An adult/child team will either bond deeply during construction or give up in despair. Directions are clear for experienced adult crafters, who will also be able to make effective use of the beautiful full-color photos.-Carole B. Kirkpatrick, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA
