Rag Doll Patterns and Art Doll Patterns

I have created easy to follow rag doll patterns and art doll patterns. Click here for e-patterns . Step-by-step directions with photos are great for all skill levels. If you still have questions while sewing you can go to the contact page and ask questions. I also have two books that offer patterns for multiple projects with the same detailed directions and lots of full color photos. All of my patterns always include full size templates so you are ready to sew.

e-Patterns for Dolls

I have added e-Patterns so you will be able to receive your patterns quickly and save the shipping charges. Shipping charges outside the United States are often higher than the cost of a pattern so this will be especially helpful for those outside the United States. The e-Patterns are in a PDF format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader to download. Most people have the Adobe Acrobat Reader but if you find that you don’t, it is available free online.

Fanciful Cloth Dolls

I’m excited to announce that my new book Fanciful Cloth Dolls has just been released from C&T Publishing.  There are projects for all skill levels. I included some fun things to try with each project like iron on thread from Kreinik and Lesley Riley’s Transfer Artist Paper.

Take a peek at some of the projects.
