Design your own dolls with this amazing book of mix-and-match crochet patterns.
Building up from the basic body, add hairstyles, hats, outfits and accessories to capture your family, friends and favourite people in crochet form. The flippable pages make it easy to follow the patterns in any combination. You could make a countless number of different dolls, or you could make one doll with an extraordinary wardrobe.
The book has two flip sections:
First choose who you want to make with the top `head' flip - you could make your mum, grandad, sister, best friend, favourite actor or pop star - or even yourself!
Next choose what they are going to be with the bottom `outfit' flip - with costumes for an astronaut and a princess, a ballerina and a footballer, a mermaid and a pirate, a surgeon, a punk and more.
With step-by-step instructions for all the basic crochet techniques that are needed, this is perfect for beginners. In addition to the flip pattern pages, there are 12 pages of colour photography showing how easy it is to combine the different flip costumes with the additional hats, clothing and hairstyles to make impressive modifications such as a wizard or a bride and groom. With tips on choosing the right skin tones, styling hair and adding facial features, the only limit is your imagination!
