This week Nataly (my daughter) and I visited local bookstore. One of our findings was a book "Embroidered Dolls Collection" by Joan Watters. This is her new book on embroidered half doll pincushions.
There are 13 projects in the book with detailed instructions and patterns.
Just look at the pictures from this book. Don't you want to make one for yourself?

I do! That's why I started searching the Internet where I could possibly buy these half dolls.
I found this unique on-line store "Little People in Porcelain" that is owned by Robin and Fred Reed and located in Australia and their website is
They sent me the Catalog of the half dolls they have and I must tell you they have a pretty nice variety of dolls any sizes for affordable prices. I haven't ordered them yet, still trying to make my decision (tooooo much variety!)
More than that, even though I like the book a lot, I would like to use it only as inspiration and come up with my own dress for a doll. It will be a fun and challenging project!
