What are you most proud of? The original pattern was batik and I changed it to silk and lace overlay, also the faces are the most fun to do!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Purchase one of Patty Medaris's Books on dollmaking you can contact me for info if you cannot find them, she gives very detailed and easy to follow instructions. The back issues of soft dolls and animals are sometimes available. I will try to share the pattern if possible, if there aren't to many requests. Take your time and be patient, don't worry if it isn't perfect it is all about being creative not perfection! Your work will get better and easier with each project.
