An all-cloth doll
that depicts old collectible dolls that were made from porcelain
or composition, combined with cloth or leather. This doll
features my exclusive "Cloth Shoulderplate" construction
method. It's really easy and fun to do. This method will give
new dimension to your cloth dollmaking.
"Beth"....about 24" tall.
Beth is a cloth reproduction of an old composition "Ma-Ma" doll
that I had as a child. The original Beth had a composition head
and shoulderplate, composition lower legs, and composition arms,
all on a muslin body. She had a crier in her tummy too. You
can reproduce the look of the old doll with a combination of
firm knit and muslin. Beth has jointed arms with fingers and
"swing" legs. Make yarn hair or use a real doll wig for a delightful
collectible. Patterns for a high waisted dress, slip, pantaloons,
shoes and socks are included.
