Descrizione prodotto


"You don't have to be a child to enjoy this fine collection of doll-making inspiration and information, featuring ten dollmakers showcasing their creations. The best thing about this collection is the diversity of doll styles represented, including Denise Ferragamo's colorful matryoshkas, Jenn Docherty's whimsically embellished needlefelted animals, Nichol Brinkman's personality-filled "pillow monster" dolls, and Sasha Pokrass's fully jointed, Steif-esque handmade teddy bears. Serious sewing skills are needed to make most of these projects, but most of the doll makers have online shops (and links are included). VERDICT: The collection celebrates the diversity and artistry of contemporary doll making. The creations are inspiring, and crafters of all ages will enjoy customizing their own versions of the dolls." --"Library Journal" "This book is awesome! I love how simple the directions are, the photos are great and I LOVE seeing some photos of the artists...Go get this book. Now." --"Schmancy Toys

Almost perfect...only 21 patterns- NOT 23. 20 gennaio 2013
Di BookKitten - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I try to get all of my craft-type books from the library first to see if they are worth the purchase. I can say this one definitely is! I've had it checked out from the library for a month now, and I couldn't stop myself from ordering my own copy. There is wonderful variety in the book, and sooo many cute items. I'm a beginner, so I can't say how an advanced doll maker would feel about this book, but I find it inspiring and fun to look at. I've made the "Fleur" doll twice already- one for my sister and one for myself- and they both turned out absolutely adorable. I'm looking at making Red Riding Hood from Suse Bauer next.

Now the bad. There is really only one bad thing I can say about it, and it is regarding the "patterns" from Ana Fernandes. There are three dolls listed for her, but you only get the pattern for ONE. You get a pattern for a girl doll, and for the dog and lamb she "gives you" you are told to use the same body as the girl doll and figure out the rest on your own (see my image in the gallery to see the lamb). For a beginner like me, making a template myself for the dog's head, ears, and clothes and the lamb's head, ears, and cape seems a little daunting. The lamb's head seems especially complicated to me as it uses a mixture of fabrics. I don't know if this was Ana's idea or the author/publisher, but it was not a smart one. If Ana only wanted to give us one pattern or the publisher only had room for her to give one, then they should have just listed one doll for her. But since they chose to list the puppy and lamb, why couldn't they just include the head and ears for them? After all, if I could make my own patterns I wouldn't need this book!

So don't count on full patterns for 23 dolls, you get 21. I can't figure out why they did this- it's annoying. I still recommend this book, just know that 2 patterns are more or less missing.

It's definitely cute 8 febbraio 2013
Di Jerilea Hendrick - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This is my first doll book and a really cute one. There are many unique designs all with a featured artist. I really enjoyed reading about each artist. I have 2 issues with the book. I've made 1 doll, Estefania. On the pattern templates it said to cut 1 head piece but you need 2. The pictures of this doll make it really hard to see if you need a second head piece. While I was cutting it out and first sewing it together (with 1 head piece) I kept wondering how the hair would be sewing on at the neckline. It was a little frustrating. I've made a note in the book for future. I am still excited to make other dolls in this book.

My other issue is there is no resource page. I would have loved to have had a couple of pages to learn more about where to find doll making supplies. I have a Hobby Lobby near me but...there's more out there. I know it. But where?

Excellant book! 27 maggio 2012

I have bought many dollmaking books written by some of the best doll artist around and I have to say that I feel this one ranks as one of the best I have had the pleasure to own in a long time. The doll artists are very popular and quite well known and I have been following their artist blogs for a long time so it's really nice to see the human side of these individuals and read their stories of why dollmaking inspires each and everyone of them. I recommend this book to all dollmakers and doll lovers as the quaility of this book recieves an A+++.

We Make Dolls makes me want to make dolls! 23 maggio 2012
Di Heidi aka Digital Misfit - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I received my copy of We Make Dolls today. The projects are so wonderfully varied. The doll artists are some of the most popular and unique designers on the web. I love Danita's 3 contributions, and the adorable Red Riding Hood shared by Sue Bauer (of Revoluzza). Mimi Kirchner, Ana Fernandes, Denise Ferragamo, Nichol Brinkman, Sasha Pokrass, Maria Maderia, and Katie Shelton all share amazing patterns for one or more sewn dolls each, and Jenn Docherty shares three sweet needle felted critters. FULL SIZE patterns are included in the back of the book, ready to be traced (though several do not have a seam allowance included, so you must add this yourself - simple enough).
This book has so many patterns from dollmakers that I admire, and the artists did not wimp out and provide cheap versions of their own work (eg: Mimi provided the pattern to her famous Tattooed Man, Danita shares a pattern for a Frida Kahlo doll)
If you like dolls, whether you are a beginner or intermediate dollmaker, this is a great book to own.
I did find it odd that the dog on the front cover, while included in the book as a pattern, is actually just the body of a cute girl doll (pattern included) - the template for the head is not included and you must design it yourself. Not a problem for most, but still odd.

We Make Dolls was a great, low cost investment. I know I will be making at least 10 of the projects inside, and that is far more than I can say for most of the books I own!
