Patterns, instructions and photographs for making a variety of dolls from natural materials.
Adults and children alike will love making and playing with these dolls, which are all made from natural materials.

With different hairstyles and clothing options, the dolls can be varied endlessly.
The book contains all the necessary patterns and detailed instructions, and is richly illustrated with colour photographs and drawings.
