Postard Reviews – Feb 2020

Containing 6 wonderful step-by-step projects and ideas for many more, this highly practical guide is aimed at those who are new to doll making, as well as more experienced needlecrafters. 
Jan’s beautiful dolls are exquisitely made, yet by breaking the process down into easy-to-follow steps, they become surprisingly easy to achieve. Full of character and life, Jan’s dolls are made using a wide range of colourful fabrics, trims, ribbons and buttons and are ideal for using up scraps and oddments of materials.

Jan Horrox is a well known and very talented doll making and with this book, she introduces us to the world of making beautiful and unique cloth dolls. The beauty and wonder of these dolls are exquisite and absolutely fascinating to look at. Each doll comes with a full sized template and step by step instructions. Each technique is brought to life with wonderful photography and written instructions.
While I am by no means as good as Jan at making these dolls I was really pleased with my efforts. Making the dolls is no a quick process, to get a good result you have to go slow and think about each step, but with Jan’s tuition and with practice the dolls are achieveable.

I loved the expressions on the dolls faces, and their names add to the fantasy look of each creation.
This is quite a special craft, I adore each design and I’m sure every sewist would love to have a go.. Even if it’s not perfect right away.
