Cloth Dolls for Textile Artists by Ray Slater

Book Description

Cloth dolls are a huge hit in the creative world and textile artists have taken up the challenge, using them as the perfect three-dimensional vehicle for expressive textile art. A range of innovative textile techniques can be used to make stunning dolls. In 'Cloth Dolls for Textile Artists' the author provides patterns for different doll shapes, from the simplest stump doll to the more complicated jointed doll. The book gives practical instruction on needle-sculpting expressive faces, as well as details on how to use the patterns to make the basic cloth doll. Then you can really start to express yourself by using a range of textile techniques on the doll, whether directly on to the body or on the clothes - from beading, hand embroidery, machine embroidery and stamping to dyeing, felting (ideal for hair!) and even quilting.
