This book (25.5 x 19 cm or 10 x 7 1/2 ") is called "Oude poppen zelf maken" (DIY of Old Dolls). It gives patterns, drawings, pictures and descriptions how to make five 19th century dolls, so strong that kids can play with them. The book is a Dutch 1976 edition, and the text is in Dutch. The book has 88 pages with photographs of all the dolls, and lots of schematic pictures companying the patterns. The first three chapters describe the materials, tracing, cutting and assembling of the patterns, and the countenances of the dolls. The following chapters describe how to make the five dolls, including the history and origin of the dolls, the specific character and their clothes. You can make these dolls by hand or by machine sewing. Each doll has its own specific character ! This book is also interesting for people who do not read Dutch; photographs, patterns and drawings make things very clear ! (And you can scan the text and run it through the google translator).
All items come from my own collection; because of space shortage, I sell parts of it here on Etsy.
