It's what the book says simple cloth dolls but these rag dolls are cute, contemporary and very loveable. I am sure they make excellent friends. I think they are adorable, and you can easily change the face and make these your very own characters. This book tells you all you need to know, in perfect step by step photographs with detailed instructions. Not only do you get the doll pattern template, but also templates for various clothes. This is a wonderful book for beginner doll makers. This book was first published in Danish.

Cute, adorable, soft and cuddly- daisy dolls are fun to make and embellish with pretty hairstyles, clothes and accessories. Create your dolls following the beautifully photographed, step-by-step instructions, then make them delightful little outfits using the templates provided at the back of the book. With inspiring images of the finished dolls and their clothes, daisy dolls are the perfect project for crafters of all levels.
