Creating Cloth Dolls: The Art and the Angst

Taking Your Dolls to the Next Level

Have you ever wondered why your dolls don't turn out like the designers' cover photos? Have you experienced frustration when the doll you envisioned is nothing like the finished product?

Whether you are (or want to be) a creator of cloth dolls - from simple play dolls to elaborate multi-jointed works of art, you've probably experienced (or will experience) the unpredictability of fabric. Sometimes this works to your advantage, but sometimes you end up with a drawer of random body parts.

We all know the phrase "practice makes perfect" applies to just about everything under the sun. And it's true. I'm currently working on doll number 489, so yes, I've got that drawer I mentioned. But over the years I've learned a few things, and I want to share with you a few pearls of wisdom.

I'm inviting you to join my email list for access to tutorials and free tips.

Be on the lookout for other offerings as well, like virtual and in-person courses, live chats, Q&A sessions, and more.
