Novice knitters only need to know a few stitches to make a collection of dolls with personality and wardrobes to match. To begin, the practical knitting and sewing know-how section illustrates the simple garter and stockinette stitches used to assemble the dolls. Supplies are minimal and easy to obtain--just yarn and thread, sewing and knitting needles, and some small pieces of fabric for the clothes and accessories. One each of five sections is devoted to creating each doll's identity and accoutrements. Included are sewing templates to cut out and use, knitting charts, and advice on washing and caring for these dolls. This skill-building project book is a start-to-finish playmate maker that will inspire creativity and spark the imagination.

You can make a doll then chose your clothes to dress it. Some charts and simple patterns to make a few outfits.
There were purses/ shoes/ tops and bottoms that you could sew or knit with your bits and pieces . Could be fun. You could make a tiny sweater or hoodie in a weekend ! Once you have the basics down I'm sure you could design your own. thinking of making a mermaid doll now somehow......
