Product description

From School Library Journal

Grade 6 Up-The projects in the book range from angels made of paper ribbon resembling cornhusks to a double-headed Little Red Riding Hood/Big Bad Wolf story doll. They will be adored by a wide age range of youngsters, but cannot be created by just any kid. In order to look like the attractive finished products, they require substantial skills in sewing, reading, organizing, and planning. A sewing machine figures prominently in many cases, as does a glue gun and a hot iron. An adult/child team will either bond deeply during construction or give up in despair. Directions are clear for experienced adult crafters, who will also be able to make effective use of the beautiful full-color photos.

From Booklist

Gr. 4^-6. Upper-elementary-and middle-graders who have good sewing skills will enjoy trying their hand at making dolls from McGraw's fetching assortment. Although there are diagrams and plenty of good color photos to guide the way, as well as a glossary explaining stitches and techniques, younger children may need adult help with the sewing and to clarify the instructions, which are clearly presented but occasionally complicated. Material and tool requirements appear in handy boxes preceding the step-by-step directions, and McGraw includes a time estimate for each project. Most of the dolls are handmade out of washrags, gloves, and a variety of soft fabrics. Special sections on making hair and eyes (McGraw is careful to caution about eyes on dolls intended for babies) appear at the beginning of the book, and full-size patterns for tracing are scattered throughout.

NEW RELEASE! Life's too short to concentrate on just one genre, and lately, McGraw has hopped from the kid-lit sandbox to the grown-ups' steamy hot tub with "The Knife Thrower's Wife" a mystery/domestic-suspense novel.

Sheila McGraw was born in Toronto and began her career as an illustrator and copywriter for retail fashion outlets and editorial publications. In 1986 she was approached by Firefly Books to illustrate "Love You Forever" written by Robert Munsch. As that book achieved success she wrote and/or illustrated several craft and children's books. McGraw's "Papier-Mache for Kids" was awarded the prestigious Benjamin Franklin Award. Her artwork has been widely exhibited and represented by the Loch Galleries in Canada.

The best seller Love You Forever has been voted Most Iconic Book Cover in a readers' poll conducted by CBC. Thank you to everyone who voted for Love You Forever.

Sheila McGraw is painting and writing in Houston Texas. She is the mother of 3 grown sons.
