SUMMARY: I just received the premiere issue for this new newsletter that caters to the dressing of the ever popular 18" vinyl dolls like American Girl. It appears to be a mix of craft(several patterns and projects in the first issue) and business(interview with an Etsy business, advice on selling at shows). It is a full-color glossy throughout with great photography and clear instructions on using the patterns given. If you were a fan of Joan Hind's "Fancywork's Best News", then this is perfect for you. I've taken the liberty of including the url below. There wasn't a lot of advertising in the first issue, but that may be because it is so new. I will be looking forward to seeing what future issues bring.

I've received the second issue - more of the same. Great patterns for 18" vinyl dolls with well executed patterns and instructions. I have developed two peeves- patterns are not clearly attributed, and outfits, or parts of outfits, shown are not included in the issue - you have to go and buy another book to complete whatever ensemble is presented. That is annoying. Photography is still great, and articles are useful. I still recommend picking this one up.

They have a website: http://www.etsy.com/shop/TooCuteDollDesigns.
