Item details

The Works

My name is Antonette Cely, and I am going to teach you everything you need to know to make beautiful cloth dolls. The Works includes my book, two videos, and an updated version of the pattern in chapter six of the book.

More than just a collection of patterns and instructions, Cloth Dollmaking, published in spiral bound format, is an informative, thought-provoking book that will start you on the road to designing and making your own fabulous dolls. Written for the beginning dollmaker as well as the more experienced, Cloth Dollmaking begins with simple dolls and basic theory, and chapter by chapter, leads you through more and more complex dollmaking techniques, until you are able to design and build your own creations with the confidence of a professional.

Cloth Dollmaking is one hundred thirty-eight pages of theory and instruction. Filled with over 450 concise illustrations, 19 pages of patterns and 8 lovely images of finished dolls, this book not only shows you what you can make with the patterns and instructions given, it nudges and provokes you to go beyond the safe confines of its pages and experiment on your own.

At the end of each chapter is a problem solving section. You are challenged to use the skills you have learned to make a doll described in this section.

My goal is to provide the stepping stones to start you on your own journey into the unique adventure of cloth dollmaking. You will gather the knowledge needed to start making your own dolls, gaining the experience it takes to give you the confidence you need.

In my first video I share all the secrets of customizing doll patterns so you can make the cloth doll of your dreams!

You'll be able to take any pattern, even one you've created yourself, and accurately alter it to take any pose!

Make the doll taller, shorter, fatter, thinner... Bend the arm or leg pattern, make the doll bend or twist in any way you would like. To see some examples of these alterations, look at the dolls in my DOLL section here on Etsy.

In my second DVD, I will show you how to create beautiful faces for your cloth doll using my technique of a "cloth-covered mask."

To start, you'll sculpt a face, then make a two-piece press mold.

Next I'll show you how to bake the face, then cover it with fabric, paint and finish it.

Top the whole thing off with dyeing fibers, and making a wig, and you'll have a lovely head for your cloth doll!

The techniques I teach apply to more than just cloth dolls, they will help you sculpt a face for a polymer clay doll as well.

My second video won a prestigious Telly Award, and you can watch a clip from it (or the first video) on Youtube. Just search for celycom.

The normal price for these items is as follows:
book $29.95
videos $39.95 each
pattern $1.00
total: $110.85

When you buy them together as “the Works” you save $29.95! That means you get the book absolutely free! Supplies are limited. Put this in your basket NOW!
