I have just posted the new, HD version of How to Ladder Stitch. It has been considerably updated to include more information on properly pinning doll parts and to make the general presentation easier to understand. I hope you enjoy it.
Victoria Rose 3rd Edition Coming Soon
Something new is coming up soon. I have just completed the 3rd Edition of Victoria Rose. It has been updated and simplified with more pictures. It can be displayed on your smartphone or tablet as well as on your computer and possibly your television. The instruction book (and 2 shopping lists) come in three formats: AZW for Kindle, EPUB for most smartphones and tablets, and PDF for large screens such as laptops and desktops, and for printing.
There are two special new features that are included in the pattern:
1. Mimi’s Video Handbook for Cloth Doll Makers contains 13 videos about all aspects of cloth doll making, including the new videos posted here recently. They will play as a regular DVD on your TV or computer, or you can play them as MP4 videos on your smartphone or tablet.
2. Mimi’s Basic Shopping List for Cloth Doll Makers discusses everything you may need for dollmaking from sewing machines to pins and needles, dressmaker’s shears, pipe cleaners for wiring fingers, armature materials and tools, and where to find everything along with specific brands and recommendations. It can save you lots of time and money by showing you what to get (and why) without having to do the research yourself.
It should be ready to go in the next two or three weeks. It is currently out being edited by Vicki Petticord to help make sure I haven’t missed anything, and that it is as simple as possible to understand and use. Look for the announcement here soon.
