This is the ultimate rag doll sewing book. Learn to sew cute rag dolls and their gorgeous clothes to make the perfect present for little girls. There are 11 adorable dolls to choose from, each with their own charming outfits. Each doll has her own name and personality and will delight children and adults alike. The step by step sewing instructions are suitable for intermediate to experienced sewists, as well as very enthusiastic beginners! The basic doll pattern can be used to sew all the dolls and then altered according to hair and eye colour and hair style. Includes templates for the doll and clothes and accessories which need to be enlarged before use. For the e-book version, a link is available to full-sized patterns. The dolls come with a variety of hair colours and styles and their own individual outfits. Choose from Fleur who has pigtails and her own doll sized knitting bag; Jean who likes the outdoors with her red boots and dungarees; and Red who has gorgeous red hair and a fabulous red cloak to match.
There is a summer time doll with cute espadrilles and straw bonnet, a ballerina doll with a tutu and tiara, a wedding doll with a beautiful dress and veil and a bedtime dolly with her own nightdress and matching teddy. And don't forget the delightful school girl doll with her own very special school satchel.
