The making of cloth dolls is one of the oldest forms of doll-making known to man. It is surprising how many shapes and forms cloth lends itself to with a little imagination! Well-preserved old cloth dolls are hard to obtain, and are quickly rising in price.

This book illustrates dolls made entirely of fabric by a full range of artists. Dolls made by hand take on a lifelike quality…
