Regardless of what readers visualize--an angel, with lace wire wings, dressed in a skirt of embroidered blooming daisies or a teddy bear constructed entirely of delicate machine thread--author Noreen Crone-Findlay provides the know-how to make it possible. Beginning with basic information and instructions on how to make a very simple crocheted doll, considered a "blank canvas," this book then explores the unique possibilities of adding color, embellishments, joints, proportions, accessories, and more. Color photos accompanied by step-by-step instructions are included for more than fifty different how-to techniques from crafting glasses, hearts, paper and wire beads, hair, wigs, costumes, ears, and wings, to constructing profile faces, and differently proportioned bodies. Producing one-of-a-kind dolls becomes simple as crocheters and dollmakers add practice, diligence, and a little imagination to the basic techniques.
