Clothespin Doll Books

Because I love clothespin dolls AND books, I have managed to gather up a LOT of pamphlets and booklets about making clothespin dolls. They're all fun, and there's always something new to learn! This is where I post the random titles I've found and enjoy!

If you have any titles that you love that aren't listed here, I would love to hear about them! Please tell me any I've missed in the comments section! 

(Edit: A word about watermarks. I HATE watermarks on photos. But the last time I put up a bunch of book pictures, I found out someone was scamming people using my pictures and selling books they didn't actually have. I felt bad about that, so now I watermark pictures that could be used on eBay or Etsy. I do not sell either of those places, so if you see my pictures there, let me know and I'll rough up the folks stealing my photos!)

 "Clothespin Dolls", Leisure Arts Leaflet #1015. 16 designs & complete instructions by Jann Johnson

Notes: None yet. I've only done one doll. But I do think the idea of felt coverings for the arms is intriguing. More dolls from this book to come, for sure!

#35 - Bear in a Vest!

"Crochet Clothespin Ornament Dolls, designed by Carol Tessier. Annie's Attic, 1996.

Note: The doll pattern in this book calls for Spanish moss for hair, and have no arms (you crochet the sleeves and glue a wooden bead to the end to be hands). All of the dresses are made from size 10 crochet cotton, and the patters are clear and easy to follow. I love this book!

#34 - Mrs. Beartha Baer Beartha has on lace "bloomers" under her dress, because I felt the skirt was too open to go without undies. Beartha's dress is from the "Alicia" pattern, without sleeves.
