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!
