Cloth Dolls, Doll Clothes, and Accessories

Welcome to my web site. It is devoted to my interest in doll dressing and making cloth dolls. I create my own patterns for cloth dolls and for doll clothing. I have written articles and books on the subject.

I blog on sewing in general and sewing for dolls in particular. Check my Blog page for sewing hints and thoughts on sewing.

I have designed a number of patterns for cloth dolls. I have also designed clothing that can be worn by commercial dolls as well as by my cloth dolls. The patterns for these are available on the Patterns page. Some are free and others can be purchased.

In addition to magazine articles, I have books on making cloth dolls and sewing for dolls. See the My Books page.
