I love dolls, and I would like to make my own. I have Cloth Doll Artistry: Design and Costuming Techniques for Flat and Fully Sculpted Figures, and these heads are from the pattern from that book.
I made the one on the right, first, and I didn’t read the instructions. I sew, so I figured that all I needed was the pattern. Ha, ha. Sure, all I would need was the pattern if the seam allowance was constant. The one on the right uses a too large seam allowance for her “chin”. You can see the dart comes all the way up to her mouth. It’s too bad, really, because I like her face better.
The face on the left is from Cloth Doll Artistry: Design and Costuming Techniques for Flat and Fully Sculpted Figures. Well, mostly.
The face on the right is from either Cloth Dolls or Creative Cloth Doll Making: New Approaches for Using Fibers, Beads, Dyes, and Other Exciting Techniques. I checked the out of the library at the same time (some time ago) and copied the face instructions into my sketch book, but I didn’t write down which book it came from!
Live & learn.
