Brenda Brightmore has been making dolls all her life and was a member of the BDA. This book brings together 15 of her cloth dolls and contains patterns and numerous step by step line drawings. All her patterns are shown full size with templates for face painting. Very suited to beginners as well as the more experienced maker, since whilst the dolls are quite ‘rag doll’ in nature they are sophisticated & beautifully made with advanced cloth doll techniques.
This book is very much for the novice cloth doll maker and certainly seems to provide some useful tips for beginners to make some very good first pieces of work. However, for more experienced cloth figure makers it seem somewhat little disappointing, despite its grandiose title!
