A Stuffed-up Rag Doll Scrap Book

October, 2013

 

Continuing the scrappy how to books featuring my original doll designs.

 

This one has a hard cover … one of my parents family albums which is now empty of photos and the pages which held them.

 

I stopped making dolls about 10 years ago, and at that time I was selling these for less than $10.

These were my favourite small dolls, and Moonshadow is my favourite design ever!

The one I managed to keep has a very dark moon!

These designs never became pattern subjects, so these pages are as near to a pattern you can get … including those very rough, and very basic hand written instructions.

Moonshadow was actually a small Cousin swinging on a fabric moon.

The body has got to be one of the least likely shapes to become a doll.

The trick with these dolls was to always cover the back of the head … the join between body and head is not pretty at best, and less pretty when I knew it was going to be out of sight. Always made sure it was strong, though!

The Dimplings were not pretty, but were quite lovable, and very easy to make.
