This contemporary look at doll making introduces many techniques through a variety of projects. There are quick makes, makes with the kids and traditional doll-making techniques. The book starts with simple flat dolls, cats and painted dolls. Section two is on Stump dolls - these are dolls with no limbs. Topsy turvy dolls are included in this section. Section three is all about knitted and crocheted dolls. Section four is rag dolls demonstrating traditional techniques. There is a lovely mouse, shown on the front cover in this section and a handsome fox puppet too. If you want quick makes turn to section four for dolls made in one hour. Section six is about inspiration and art dolls, section seven about doll makers. There are some pattern templates at the back of the book. Dolls are certainly not what they used to be, but if you enjoy the creative flourishing in the doll market, you'll enjoy this book. I do think it is mainly aimed at 12-25 year olds.

This book is ideal for beginners and children, not quite what I wanted but will pass on to my grandchildren so that they can have a go, good quality, arrived on time
