Cloth Dolls for Textile ArtistsBook - 2008
Independent Publishing Group
Presenting the basic principles and techniques of doll making, this book provides patterns for different shapes of dolls--from the simple stump doll to the more complicated joint doll--as well as practical instruction on needle-sculpting expressive faces using needle and thread embroidery. A wide range of textile techniques fill these pages, as step-by-step instructions take artists through methods of beading, hand and machine embroidering, stamping, dyeing, felting, and quilting. An exciting alternative, the cloth doll represents the perfect medium for textile artists to express their skill and creativity.
