Friday pattern review

This just came across my desk. It’s another of Linda Walsh’s lovely Colonial dolls. This one is a partner, indeed a twin, to Peter, that I talked about last week. She’s 16″ tall, a cloth doll with an embroidered face and a pretty costume.

Linda has designed a doll that is simple to make, even for cloth doll beginners. The face is embroidered, so those who love to use their needle will be happy! You could also paint the face, if that’s your preference.

The pattern has complete, full sized pattern pieces, with detailed illustrated instructions. Linda also creates wonderful stories for each of her characters.

So get out those pretty prints and start sewing! Here’s where you’ll find the┬ápattern

Let’s hear it for the boy!

In the doll making world, the guys are under appreciated. First off, there are fewer male doll artists. Those who do create dolls are excellent. Then there are fewer male characters produced. I can tell you from experience and comparing notes with my peers, that the male dolls don’t sell as well. Even when part of a pair. I can’t explain it really. Less glamour than their female counter parts?
Here’s a new cloth doll pattern by Linda Walsh. Linda’s patterns always come with a complete story for each doll. Peter here is no exception. Dressed in Colonial style with those big brown eyes, who could resist this guy? You can read his full story on┬áDoll Street Dreamers.
