Creative Cloth Doll Beading (Paperback)

Patti Medaris Culea


Beading, one of the oldest forms of craft, is also a hot new trend and being used in new applications. Beadwork, which has typically been used in fashion, home decoration and jewellery, is reaching for new horizons and showing up on quilts, journals, knits, crochet and fibre arts of all kinds. In this book, author Patti Medaris Culea and beading experts Anne Hesse and Laura McCabe illustrate new ways of using various bead techniques to embellish the cloth doll. Sections include the basics of beadwork, beaded flowers for her hair, bead embroidered faces, starbursts (using crystals to enhance the figure) and wings and things (creating wings, crowns and shoes with beads). Each chapter presents a different type of beading application in detail, along with full instructions. Techniques are highlighted with step-by-step photos, and a gallery of interpretations of the same pattern by leading artists is included for further inspiration.
