One of my favorite cloth doll artists is Antonette Cely. A student of Lisa Lichtenfels, Cely is one of the few cloth dollmakers whose work is detailed and lifelike enough to go naked. She generously shares her knowledge with us on her website with tutorials about wefting doll hair, stuffing, and making eyes, hands, and shoes. You can find more tips in these excerpts from her dollmaking video. The excerpts are on Youtube here and here. The video and her books are for sale here.
I hope everyone’s having a good week; I’ve been a bit under the weather.
