NOTE: ALL COVER IMAGES THIS PAGE ARE PROPERTY OF
PUBLISHER, but scanned from my private collection.

SUMMARY: This was an all-purpose doll crafter magazine that covered cloth, paper maché, clay, paper - anything you could make dolls out of. It was all over the place in pattern consistency, but still had some real gems. It covered teddy bears, but not other types of stuffed animals. It had one article throughout that worked at identifying vintage manufactured dolls for people written by Mary Schweitzer Lalli. I know House of White Birches better for their tatting books, but this magazine is well worth hunting up.

It's been a year since I started this page, and I have yet to run across a single issue before Summer 1987. I'm thinking that's when House of White Birches took over publication there may have been a name change as well. Research librarian extraordinaire, Ruth, was able to track down the name of the publishing house that owns the property, and I've sent a query - hopefully, I'll be able to fit that piece of the puzzle in soon. If anyone knows anything about this mystery...

...The publication owner very kindly responded and filled me in on "Doll Designs" history(Thank you!). DRG Pattern Services confirmed that "Doll Designs" was originally "National Doll World Omnibook", which is why I've never found any issues of "Doll Designs" before Summer 1987 despite the volume numbering on the issues!

Anyone with more information about this publication can contact me through My Contact Page.
