Description

INTRODUCTION TO JEWELRY MAKING FOR VINYL PLAY DOLLS, a Lee & Pearl downloadable PDF craft ebook:

Follow our detailed, photo-illustrated tutorials to make EARRINGS, BRACELETS and NECKLACES that match your doll's unique style. We'll also carefully walk you through two different methods to pierce your own doll's ears — and we'll direct you to the proper attachments for either American Girl-size studs, or ordinary human posts.

And guess what? You can also make PERSON SIZED accessories using the same tools and techniques! Just swap in earring hooks from the craft store for the figure eight attachments and you can make your own glorious hoops, dangles and pendants — as well as bracelets, necklaces, and anything else you please!

***

Here's the TABLE OF CONTENTS for this full-color, 30-page PDF craft guide:

1. LET'S TALK ABOUT DOLL EARRINGS
Introducing figure eight attachments — which turn post earrings and simple studs into pretty drops and dangles.

2. HOW TO PIERCE YOUR DOLL'S EARS — A CAUTIOUS GUIDE
Learn how to make the large holes that fit American Girl®-brand stud earrings — and also small holes that fit human-sized stud earrings.

3. BASIC JEWELRY MAKING TOOLS
Get started with jewelry making pliers, jump rings, head pins and beads.

4. MAKE EASY EARRINGS FROM READY-MADE PENDANTS AND JUMP RINGS
Learn to open and close simple jump rings — the most basic jewelry making skill.

5. MAKE DRAMATIC DANGLING EARRINGS FROM LINKED JUMP RINGS AND BEADS
Connect multiple jump rings and add beads to build chandelier earrings and dangling hoop constructions.

6. MAKE YOUR OWN PENDANTS AND PENDANT EARRINGS USING HEAD PINS
Create your own essential wire shapes using round-nosed pliers.

7. MIX JUMP RINGS, BEADS AND HEAD PINS ­— AND THE SKY'S THE LIMIT!
Mix and match the basic techniques to create our shell-hoop-and-bead design, or create your own unique designs.

8. BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE...
Make boho-fabulous feather earrings using a few more supplies from the jewelry-makers arsenal — crimp beads and crimp bead covers.

9. ON BEYOND EARRINGS — BRACELETS AND NECKLACES
Make simple and fun doll bracelets with elastic beading cord, then add clasps and crimp beads to make single-strand doll necklaces. Finally, add head pins and cone beads to make glorious, cascading, multi-strand doll necklaces.

As always, Lee & Pearl's photo-illustrated directions make each step and each technique lesson as easy as possible!

Starting in December 2018, that's Lee & Pearl Pattern 1038: The Gift Bow Front Dress for 18 Inch, 16 Inch and 14 1/2 Inch Dolls.

While scouting the fashion pages and runway reports for inspiration, our pattern designer was struck by one of the prettiest trends we’ve seen in a long time. You’ve probably noticed it too — all those soft ruffles and gathers, interesting pleats and seams, bows and motifs formed out of the fabric of the dress itself. It’s an organic kind of ornamentation, that allows over-the-top frills while still retaining the elegant restraint of a vintage couture gown.

Our Bow Front Dress explores this lovely trend with pleated raglan sleeves, a draped front panel and inverted center front pleats that mimic the look of a tied ribbon bow. Best of all, we designed this dress to be made from a single quarter yard or fat quarter of ordinary woven fabric — a dress designed around the use of pretty fabrics should allow you to use a wide variety of pretty fabrics!

This guide is eaasy to understand and does not require a lot of tools and materials. I've made jewelry for dolls before (16" fashion dolls) so I'm experienced in the process. This guided added to my knowledge and (hopefully, my skills ). I'm verry happy with this purchase.
