Title: Mop Doll Heaven Author: Dorene Prior Publication Date: Booklet:1990 Publisher: Mennonite Press, Newton, KS Page Count: 22 Book Dimensions(ht. x w.): 11" x 8 1/2" ISBN: None
PATTERN RATING: . There aren't many patterns here - a basic head shape and a few clothes to dress the mop dolls in is the extent of the list. What's given has seam allowances marked and basic sewing instructions. The author manages to wring quite a bit of character out of the mop heads and simple patterns, though. If there had just been a little more variety, I'd have added a third star.
INSTRUCTION RATING:. Instructions are pretty well laid out, with photos to show you what to do next. I had no trouble following it, and I don't think anyone else would either.
SUMMARY- It would never occur to me to make dolls out of mops, and I think they would be engaging to a kid, so the author gets cudos for originality and appeal. If you're looking for something really different to do, this is an interesting read.
