First Step for Tilly
A friend gave me this book at the weekend. It's by Rosalie Quinlan and Melanie Hurlston - I don't think I've seen a book before where the authors' names are not on the cover. It's good timing because I've been planning to make a doll for my granddaughter. I like the step by step instructions in the book. But the first step was a little disingenuous. Trace all the pieces from page 125 it said, failing to mention that the pieces on page 125 are half size. My copier doesn't have an enlarge function. I had to scan the page and print it; roughly cut out the pieces; scan them individually; crop each scan (essential!); enlarge each piece; and then print it. So I now have the pieces for Tilly, but have yet to begin step 2.
