Victoria DiPietro Designs

victoriadipietro is taking a short break.

Dear Customers,

Update 2/10/14:

Due to ongoing health issues, I am temporarily closing my shop until I can resume regular activity. I honestly don't know how long I will be gone. I've had a marathon of tests and in January 2014 was diagnosed with a second bout of breast cancer. I am still having more tests on 2/21/14 to determine what stage it is and if it has spread.

If you are interested in purchasing Poppet, Clara, Portrait-Style Dolls or Beyond Bows in the CD format, please visit:

They carry these four pattern tutorials at the same prices I do. Dollmaker's Journey is the only authorized dealer for my patterns. If you've never visited their online store, you are in for a treat. They carry patterns from so many talented doll artists, as well as supplies and reference materials. Mary Ann is constantly adding free video clips, covering a huge variety of doll making subjects to help you choose the materials that are right for you.

Thank you so much for your interest and support in my artwork and tutorials. It means the world to me!

Love to all,

victoriadipietro's Shop Announcement

Welcome to my Etsy Shop. I'm so pleased to meet you. As a doll artist and pattern designer, I know how important it is to offer clear, step-by-step tutorial instructions for every level of doll making ability.

I write in a conversational style and provide close-up color photos and drawings to illustrate what cannot be described in words alone. I strive to provide a one-on-one learning experience for you; just as if I were sitting beside you and showing you how to make my dolls. Every tutorial has my email address listed inside and I always invite you to contact me if you ever have a question, suggestion or photos of what you have accomplished with my patterns.

I will be offering new patterns on CD in the near future, as well as paperclay masks, kits and finished dolls. There's lots more to come and I hope you will visit me often.
