Hi* Everyone ..the hoiday season is sneaking up on us really fast! I have been wanting to *NiCeLy* draw up and make copies of 2 Amish doll patterns, probably for gifts for my sewing girl-friends. I have 2 dolls that are different / one is (!!) an Egg-head on a stand with a dowell, with a dress and a bonnet, and wire hands wrapped with cloth. The other is a darling 16-inch well-proportioned cloth doll, faceless but with yarn hair, and full dress with apron and bonnet; shoes are sewn on permanently to the feet. I think that both dolls lend themselves to country home decor, but I would like the patterns to be "appetizing"??/ you know/ "enticing"! / Should I put a kit of simple materials together, or should just spend time on the "artwork" of the patterns, and the instructions?? (I'm going to have to make up the instructions, as these wonderful dolls were both found in local Thrift stores, and in very good shape.) Any suggestions from pattern makers out there in cyberspace? THANKS!
