Original Lesson by Judi Ward!
Over the years I have tried to advance the cloth doll makers ability to personalize and design cloth dolls that are more original to the doll maker. My patterns almost always give several face and hair choices and some even give different leg and arm styles in one pattern.
I have written articles on changing stitched on limbs to jointed limbs, easy face designing using household objects and templates, face painting techniques, actual doll designing, clothing designing, accessory designing, changing un-sculptured faces to sculptured faces, etc. All of the methods have been something that the non artist-non designer can do with just a little effort and practice.
I design and make cloth dolls as a natural part of living. It's as much a part of me as breathing, but I am always trying to think up ways for the non-designer to create either all original, or partially original cloth creations. The following Finger Design lesson and the “Design Your Own Cloth Doll” class (Available Online - Click HERE) will both teach you, as a non-designer, ways that you can design with confidence and success!
