I just finished watching the Patti Medaris Culea video called "Cloth Doll Making".
She is such a sweet lady and a great teacher. The video is the perfect companion to any of her books...I have a few:) It's just like taking a live class with her as she goes through all of her major techniques. I find that I learn more sometimes just by watching a person live or on video demonstrating a process or method than by reading about it in a book.
So of course now I want to try out one of Patti's doll patterns. There is a pattern that comes with the video but I've decided to make one of her intermediate patterns called "Tania" from "Creative Cloth Doll Faces." That's her on the on the cover of Patti's latest book.
p.s. I don't get any remuneration from mentioning Patti's books or video....I'm just a fan of her work:)
