I mentioned it way back here. And it is now available here!
We Make Dolls is available! It has been more than a year since I sent in my contributions for this book- and now I have a copy in my hands. Two copies actually, so I am going to give one away. Add a comment to this post by Friday, June 1 (midnight eastern time) and I will use a random number generator to pick the winner. One entry per person and all that.
I love the promo poster-
There we all are!
Here is a video that shows all the projects-
I am going to write a separate post with my thoughts on the book. This one is getting way too long!
note- give-away is now closed.
oooo, number 98, that can’t be good. congratulations mimi!! how fun to see your face there in print. i like that you modified your pattern…still able to share a bit of your art without giving away all the secrets. sounds fair to me.
Looks like massive fun, count me in.
What a great book, congratulations! So many inspiring and talented doll makers in one place? Awesome!
Oh, I love the look of this book! I’ve been away from dollmaking for a while and this looks like it would be full of inspiration! A copy would be a much loved addition to my craft library!!
That looks so cool – I can’t wait to take a look!
Your dolls are amazing Mimi ! Everytime I think you’ve made my favorite doll, another one appears, you out do yourself everytime !!
Mimi, I love your dolls and I love knowing how things are made. Looking forward to seeing the book. Congratulations.
So exciting to see the faces behind the wonderful dolls.
I would love to win your lovely book.

I would love to win your book!
I love what you introduce to doll-making. Your dolls are so fresh, innovative.
Been following your site for a couple years now and love your work. Looking forward to seeing the Doll book
Dear Mimi…I was so excited about your book…and though I am familiar with some of the other artists…I love it for your work…HOWEVER I never win anything …SO just to make sure I got a copy I bought it….and now am anixiously awaiting arrival…..your Robots are my current favorites and I enjoyed the blog of making them…I make story quilts which include characters etc so I identify with stopping and I often rework a design over and over…..Congratulations…my
so awesome to see your work on the cover! congratulations!
Hi, Would love to get the book ! I live in Turkey and the USD rate is too high :) But I will scrap and save and buy one !
Congratulations! The book looks amazing!
I love your work and am excited to take a look at this book. Winning is nice but owning it is better so I will be hunting for a copy, unless I am a very lucky girl.
this book looks wonderful. Your work truly amazes me! Thanks for the chance.
Yay Mimi! This is so cool!
That book looks amazing. I love making dolls…though I do need some help perfecting them…and this would do the trick!:)
What a great looking book! I’ve really been enjoying your generals, especially the red head ;o)
If I am not your lucky winner, I will be ordering this tomorrow. :) It’s already in my shopping cart. Thanks for the giveaway, I love your beautiful dolls! Angela
Congrats on the book! It looks awesome.
What a lovely looking book. Can’t wait to get my hands on it!
perhaps I will be lucky last. I’d start making a tatooed man as soon as I could if I won a copy of the book. thanks for sharing. loving the generals too!
Sweet! This is so exciting for you! And for the rest of us too ;) I hope I win this but if not it brings me a thrill to see your blog updates in my inbox to see what you are doing next! Congrats!!!!
I’ve recently been the proud recipient of new nieces & nephews. I am planning doll gifts for each birthday and would love to use this book as a reference. Even if I don’t win it, I will probably buy it. :-)
Love your dolls, Mimi.
What wonderful work – I am having our library order this book too
I love the tatooed man, and all your dolls. This is a ‘must have’ book!!
What a distinguished looking crew. Your attention to detail is inspiring. Congrats on the book!
I love the Generals!
I have some wool for you- it’s tan, mottled blue. I washed the tan wool with blue wool and… now it nicely felted so I thought you might like it. I can drop it by your house or hold it hostage until we meet for coffee!
You are so creative, I love your generals. I’ve always admired your work at DSD. Thanks for the opportunity to participate in your drawing.
Missed the give-away by a long shot, but own the book already. I bought it because I love your tatoo man. I’ll be proud if I get one completed, though I know its different than your orginals. They are all originals – that is the beauty, correct? I am very much a novice – and like to sew by pictures better than directions anyway, so don’t worry about the book format. I make very few dolls – always to give my sister, a lifetime “doll lover” – as gifts. Thank you for sharing.
