Hello doll lovers! This blog was created to tell you about dolls I have made and classes I teach on doll making at Attic Window Quilt Shop in Comstock Park, Michigan (a suburb of Grand Rapids). My goal in teaching is to pass on the love of making heirloom quality dolls. Most of the dolls I make (and hold classes for) are designed by Gail Wilson - visit her website at www.gailwilsondesigns.com . Page down my blog for some fun doll links including antique doll sites and hard to find doll supplies.

Paper Minis Project

ooooh!  There is a very cute freebie in the newsletter for the paperminis club this month.  Signing up for the free newsletter is easy: just send an email to ann-vanture@paperminis.com requesting it and then you get sent an email with the newsletter and link to the free paper mini project. You have a choice of a couple different scales to print and then cut and assemble.  There are tutorials on how to make paper items in miniature to get you thru the process. There are also items you can buy in kit form or even already made up if you don't want to give it a whirl.  Just make sure your dolls aren't looking over your shoulder when you go to her site at http://www.paperminis.com/  or you'll hear "I want that, and that, and that too! Oh Please!"  My feedsack boy is holding his pinwheel from a previous free project.



To help your doll hold their item, you can use those invisible hair holders - they usually come in 3 different sizes and won't show on the doll.

  2. What a delight! Thank you so much for sharing this marvelous website. You little man there looks rather like a Gail Wilson design. And that pinwheel is adorable!

  3. It is a GW design - the feedsack doll. I turned it into a boy and of course he couldn't sit still without something to hold in his hand.

    The pinwheel was a past free newsletter bonus, but I think it is still available for sale on her website.
