My Felt Doll Book Available for Pre-Order!!

Hello dear friends!  I have some fabulous news to share with you all!  As most of you know, I've spent most of the last year working on my very first book of doll patterns.  Well guess what?  It's now available to pre-order for October 2015 from Stitch Craft Create - please click here for the link.  This has been such a wonderful experience and I'm so excited to finally share some sneak peeks with you!

These are just a few of the 12 different dolls that will be featured in the book - from left to right above:  Little Traveler, Schoolgirl, Ringmaster and the Bedtime doll and below, a sweet Prima Ballerina!
A wonderful opportunity came my way a few weeks ago when I was contacted by Margreta, a British film student who asked me to create 5 identical dolls for a mini film called 'Trash' based on child abandonment. 
 If you'd like to watch the 3 minute movie, please click here and if you like what you see, please show your support by voting for it.  Thanks!!

Have a happy week! :)

  12. HI,

    I bought your book from kobo (EPUB). However the patterns are included in EPUB and when printed it's not the actual size. Can you provide patterns in a pdf or something? Thanks

  13. The book was waiting for me when I got back from holiday a couple of days ago, love it! Can't wait to get making!

    One question, where are your suppliers - I'm having trouble sourcing the right felts here in the UK, especially the plaid felt, I can't seem to find any anywhere over here. Have you got any links you could share for places in the UK to source materials needed?

    Anyway, awesome book, love it, they're so cute!

    Thank you!

  15. I just purchased the digital(Nook)version of your book and I was wondering how can I access the patterns? Nook does not allow desktop access to digital books and unfortunately, I don't think the patterns will show in actual size for me to trace them directly from my device.

    Thank you in advance!
