TOYBOOK & MAGAZINE BIBLIOGRAPHY

(last updated: JANUARY, 2023)

NOW OVER 800 REVIEWS!!!

Igor with Manual

This bibliography is a combination of what's on my shelves and what references I've come across in search of other titles. Those bibliography entries that have this Book Review Popup Window icon means I own a copy and have created a Pop-up Page which includes a brief review, the table of contents and a picture of the book or magazine cover. Just click on the Review icon to access the page.

This bibliography is by no means exhaustive(more like the tip of the iceberg!), but should help give you an idea of what's out there in printed materials. Magazines are collected in one section at the bottom of this page. Book listings are done alphabetically by author, then by copyright date of books done by that author. If an author has some vaguely related titles, I've included them as well, (even if they aren't strictly soft toy or doll craft books).

ADDING NEW FEATURES!

FEATURE 1: (as of January 2007) I see no reason not to add links to designer's websites in the bibliography if they are available and I have permission from them, so I will be adding this as a new feature to help crafters find the patterns they want from the designers they love. I am also adding dedicated pages for designers who either self-published a lot of individual patterns you might not otherwise be aware of, or published in magazines, and thus aren't easily accessible unless you happened to subscribe to that magazine during the time period they were publishing(see newest entries for Alan Dart, Geri Milano, and Colette Wolff!).

FEATURE 2: As this bibliography grows, I think it will be harder to find what sorts of books you're looking for without wading through a lot of reviews and guessing by title, so I'm adding icons to each listing to represent at a quick visual glance what you can expect to find in this book. This feature is a long way from complete, as it will require me to go through (once again) all the books I own to check the categories any given book may have patterns for.

Here's the key to the images I've chosen for now:

- Book has crocheted doll or toy patterns
- Book has Knitted doll or toy patterns
- Book has cloth doll and/or doll clothing
- This is a Teddy Bear book
- This book has cloth toy patterns
- This book teaches significant toy design


My main claim to fame is the magazine section at the bottom of this page. There I've listed all the magazines I'm aware of that were either exclusively about soft toys and dolls, or regularly published patterns of the same. All my bibliography pages have a magazine section. Many of these magazine titles have Reviews- pages where I've not only given you all the bibliography information available to me, but if I have a significant number of issues, then the table of contents of all the issues I have. I'm constantly adding to it.

I expect people to use the BIBLIOGRAPHY LISTS to build their own wishlists. The REVIEWS & MAGAZINE CATALOGS are a different matter - especially the magazine catalogs. The magazine catalogs are a huge investment in money, time and personal energy. Hunting down issues, then scanning individual covers and entering all the tables of contents, has been a gigantic money and time sink. It is also an unique resource on the web - I don't know of any other similar catalog that covers craft magazines like I do. They don't because it is a little crazy to do so! You can go to any library and find a catalog of "National Geographic" or "Scientific Journal" - but good luck finding a catalog of any craft magazine.

I know it is very useful because I'm steadily running across people on e-bay who've stolen entries from my catalogs to use in their selling of magazine back issues - without bothering to cite their source. That really burns me up. Most people have the decency to either take it down or add the citation when requested. Most seem shocked to be addressed by the owner of the website they raided - I guess they thought the pixel fairies had magically provided the catalog. A few yahoos deny the theft. I've built in ways to determine if it's my work or not. I KNOW. I'm sure there are even more people who have made copies of my review pages for their personal use. So long as you keep my copyright notification with it and aren't selling it or otherwise making money off it(that's my prerogative), I don't see what it hurts. But stripping the copyright from a database of work is theft! Using my work without my permission to sell your stuff is theft!

OK. I'm fine here. Everything is fine here. Just move along, nothing to see...

If you want a more indepth rant about copyright infringement, then go to my FAQ

If you see an error, Please, Please, correct me! Passing on wrong information is in my top ten Bad Things To Do, and while I am careful, I have no editor here to catch my mistakes. All opinions presented are strictly my own, so should be taken with a healthy dose of skepticism! And remember my mantras: 1)YOUR MILEAGE MAY VARY, and 2)MURPHY DEMANDS THAT THE INFORMATION YOU'RE LOOKING FOR IS IN A BOOK/MAGAZINE ISSUE I DON'T HAVE. If you keep those two things firmly in mind as you browse, you can't be disappointed. In fact, I hope you'll be delighted with the wealth of information organized here for your entertainment and use. I know you'll find stuff you never knew existed! I built a website that I searched for in vain when looking for a way to manage my own burgeoning collection of books and magazines. Having them is very unhelpful if you can't find what you want when you need it. This website is for you.



If anyone can contribute bibliography information for teddy bear, doll, crochet, or knit toy-making books or magazines not listed, I'll happily add them! You can contact me through LEIGH'S CONTACT PAGE.

EXPLANATION OF REVIEW RATINGS

Like all reviewers, I have my prejudices, and no matter how hard I try, they are going to affect how I see a designer's work. Remember that I personally have never published a craft book, and have no credentials whatsoever other than decades of experience using said books, and that an experienced publisher thought enough of these designer's works to go to the great expense and time intensive trouble to turn their work into a product we could buy and enjoy. Please keep this in mind when looking over an entry and trying to form your own opinions from what scant information I give you!

Please do not e-mail to ask me to photocopy patterns out of these books for you - I can't. I would be depriving a book seller of income, and if the book is still in print, the designer of royalties! I value and respect intellectual property rights, and hope you will do the same. The bibliography and reviews are here to let you know what is out there, and give you at least a vague idea of whether you wish to pursue your own copy. I am not a free pattern service! That said, I WILL look things up for people.

I'd have paid good money for such a list when I was wishing for just the right books for a project, but had to put it together the hard way - and ended up with a lot of books I'd never have bought if I'd had a chance to look it over first, because I buy a lot of my books on-line or from catalogs. My pain is your gain! If you are looking to purchase a copy of an out-of-print book, I can recommend AbeBooks.com or Alibris.com. Alibris.com has the better search engine. AbeBooks.com has the wider selection. It's usually a toss-up as to which has the better priced/condition copy, so I check both before ordering something. Something I've learned the hard way when buying used books - if the seller does not specifically state that a hardcover has its dust jacket, it almost certainly is missing. That may not matter to you, but it was worth a forewarning.

If you have a lot of patience and books of your own you'd like to find new homes for, there is another option that has worked out really well for me: www.paperbackswap.com I have had fantastic luck with this service, and gotten some phenomenal deals. If you love books, I highly recommend them. I ask that if a book is still in print, that you purchase it new to support the author so they can afford to create more books for us!

Reviews are broken down into as many as four(4) parts:

PATTERN RATING(0 to 5 stars)- Zero meaning patterns aren't provided with the book (yes, there are a couple), and each listing can have a maximum of 5 stars if the 1)designs are appealing, 2)patterns are full-sized and don't have to be enlarged 3)they have the seam allowance marked on them(this is a pet peeve of mine, so it gets its own star), 4)there is either a lot of variety here, or very unusual patterns I haven't seen elsewhere - i.e- not yet another teddy bear or duck, 5)patterns are very well marked to help the crafter figure out how to put the toy together, even if the instructions get separated and lost.

INSTRUCTIONS RATING(0 to 5 stars)- Zero meaning there are no instructions provided, and up to 5 stars meaning the 1)instructions are so scant as to be useless, 2) instructions provide some direction, but you'd better already know what you are doing, 3)instructions are good and well organized by step, but you probably should have some experience already with toy making before tackling most of these projects, 4)instructions are great and have some illustration to help you over the sticky parts, 5)instructions are great and so well illustrated even a rank beginner can follow along.

BONUS MECHANICS RATING(1 to 5 stars)- THIS RATING IS MISLEADING because 1 star doesn't mean it is a poor book for learning new design or construction techniques - it means I thought it had something extra! It can have up to 5 stars meaning the book 1)has a sparky quality for inspiring new ideas, 2)gives at least one area of tutorial on a design aspect - even if it's just how to create different styles with yarn for doll hair, 3)gives tutorials on several design fronts, particularly explaining gussets, but lacked really comprehensive coverage of the topic, or missed the mark in explaining the techniques it was trying to get across, 4)does a good job teaching design, but could have used more illustration, 5) does a great job of explaining design techniques AND gives great illustrations that support the tutorial adequately.

SUMMARY- This is a brief summation of what I liked/actively disliked about this book. I bring 10 years of fiction editing from a writing workshop I ran, and about 30 years of crafting and design experience. Only the last 8 years of that have been as a professional toy designer(and by professional, I mean that I design and make toys that people are willing to fork over money for, and nothing more). I come from custom costuming, and having made up toys for my younger brothers and sisters growing up. I have no formal accredited training in art or design whatsoever. All opinions given are my own, and thus to be taken with a healthy dose of skepticism. I am not an "Authority" and should not be mistaken as such!

Also keep in mind that even though a book may be short of stars in one category, it can make up for it in others - not everyone is interested in learning how to design their own toy patterns, so the Mechanics rating would be irrelevent to them - while for others, that would be the only rating they are interested in. A good instruction rating is going to mean a lot more to a novice crafter than to someone who has experience.

Please enjoy browsing and remember to bookmark the home page so you can see at a glance if anything has been updated. I'm very proud of what I've accomplished so far, and hope you get as fascinated and excited about discovering new books in your fields of interest as I do!

AMIGURUMI is a Japanese word that means simply "crochet or knit stuffed toys". In Japan, they are typically pretty small, and cute. Very, very cute. Other crochet and knit stuffed toys are not necessarily tiny as the Japanese toys, but I've gone ahead and collected all the books and magazines I know about under the AMIGURUMI category, though there will be links further down under "Crochet" and "Knitted". I am only listing those translated into English for the nonce, though the Japanese language books are charted, so really, anyone can read them.

COATS & CLARK I've moved most of these booklets to their own page so that you don't have to scroll so much to get past them. Most are not soft toy or doll books, so you'll have to scroll through the list to pick them out. I'd been piecing together a comprehensive list of all the thread mill booklets published over the decades - and Coats & Clark was the 800 lb. gorilla in the thread industry - for over a decade, and then my friend, the amazing Becky Clark, filled in the rest of the list in just a few days. We have Becky to thank for the links to availabe pdfs of many of the early books as well. If you happen to encounter her, be sure to thank her for all the work she's done gratis for both the Craft Bibliography Project and for CRAFTREE.COM Without her, a staggering amount of information would still be lost and wandering in the electronic ether.

FASHION DOLLS is a bit difficult to juggle here. There are cloth fashion dolls - Ella DeHart gave us many and the clothes to dress them, but the 800 lb. gorilla of the fashion dolls is Barbie and her friends. There have been endless amounts of clothing patterns designed to fit them since she first debuted March 9, 1959(considered Barbie's birthday). Designers like Joan Chiara Cigler made a career on creating clothing patterns for 11.5in fashion dolls. Then there are all the many many packaged patterns that were put out by companies like Simplicity and McCalls. This page is going to take forever to set up and fill in, and I could use a great deal of help. If you collect the books and patterns for clothing fashion dolls, I'd be very grateful for a catalog of your collection to help me fill in the stubs for this bib page.

JEAN GREENHOWEis a knitting and sewing master designer, and has her own company, Jean Greenhowe Designs, UK where she has original knit patterns for sale and also has some free patterns available for download.. I've done something a little different with her page - normally I don't show a cover unless I can review the book. But she is so prolific, and I think it really helps to be able to see the designs to decide whether to chase down a copy for your own library. I hope you will support her and buy from her direct.

Prairie People, Cloth Dolls to Make and Cherish, by Marji Hadley & J. Dianne Ridgley (TPB:1994)
Notes: 100 pages; Country: USA; Publisher: That Patchwork Place, Inc.; ISBN: 1564770532;

CAROLYN VOSBURG HALL is best known by me for her soft sculpture books - she was a genius at turning images into 3D soft sculpture and up there with Margaret Hutchings in her ability to teach it to others through her books. She also wrote some important quilting books that I don't think get enough attention. Most of her reviews are here in the soft toy and doll bib, but the other reviews are elsewhere, so the structure of the reviews is slightly different from the review pages I have for the soft toy bib. I decided to build a dedicated page for her work - she is quite amazing - and I hope you will help me keep her legacy alive by visiting it and browsing the books she wrote for us. My admiration for her talent and creativity know no bounds. In order to bring up the pop-up page, just click: CAROLYN VOSBURG HALL

MINIATURE BOATS AND CARS AND PLANES have to share a page for now. I may revisit this is I discover they have as crazy amount of literataure supporting them that trains do, but for now I've set up this stub in hopes someone who is an enthusiast can help this bibliography by filling me in on what I've missed. The link is disabled for now until I at least have a good start on filling in the stubs for this page.

MINIATURE DOLLS AND DOLLHOUSES I'll be migrating all the dollhouse dolls and houses stuff to this page. when I have a week with nothing pressing that has to get done. They've deserved their own page since the beginning, but there's a learning curve to this cataloging business and the soft toy bib was my first page and the one I made all of my mistakes on, of course. I have a better idea of what I need to do now, just not as much time at the moment to get it done, but I'll have this stub to remind me, and if you are a miniatures fanatic with a special library(especially of the magazines, like "Nutshell News") and are willing to help out here, please, please, get in touch. My contact page is linked to the home page.

MINIATURE MILITARY MODELS AND DIORAMAS is probably what I have the most of in the way of miniatures literature - yes, I'm aware I'm a girl. I used to love to wargame, and I was good at it. I'll fill this in as I dig out the boxes of my Osprey and modeling books...

MINIATURE TRAINS AND RAILROADS is probably what I have the least of in the way of miniatures literature, and what is out there may dwarf all the other miniatures categories combined. If you are an enthusiast with a special library, I hope you will get in touch and help me fill this page out...

SUSAN BONSALL SIRKIS is one of my favorites. She is a miniaturist and a talented dresser of dolls and doll makers. She graced the pages of "Toy Trader" and wrote many many books. I don't quite have them all, but I'm well on my way. This woman spent hundreds of hours in museums looking at old clothes, and had the talent to draw them then make patterns for them for all of us to use. We owe her a big debt. She is up there with Joan Chiara Cigler as one of the top shelf designers of doll clothes. In order to bring up the pop-up page, just click: SUSAN BONSALL SIRKIS

COLETTE WOLFF (1929 - Oct. 23, 2020) and Platypus Publications has her own dedicated bibliography page! Ms. Wolff published dozens of detailed patterns, newsletter and magazine columns and has been very influential in the field of cloth doll-making, the crafter as artist, and the artist as a successful business. The biography and pictures could not have happened without Colette's neice's generosity, and I want to give special thanks to Kristy Effinger, Ruth Wilson, and Phyllis McIntyre for sharing their wonderful collections and making the dedicated bibliography page possible in the first place.

I do intend to do a woodcraft bib that will include wood carving, wood burning(pyrography), chip carving, and of course, making toys, games, and puzzles out of wood. I'm setting up this page to have somewhere to put my slow accumulation of these books. I don't quite have enough woodworking books and magazines to justify the time investment, but I keep chipping away at it, so to speak. In the meantime...

MAGAZINE BIBLIOGRAPHY

The Cloth Doll #1

This is the section of the bibliography that started it all.

In 2001, I went looking on the Library of Congress' website for bib details on "The Cloth Doll" because I'd just bought a large run and wanted to know exactly how many issues I was missing. There was depressingly little information to be had. So I started checking other craft titles. The Library of Congress had only spotty information on ANY OF THEM, IF AT ALL.

I had been told with confidence all my life that the Library of Congress kept a copy of everything that had ever been put into print in America. I had this vague idea that all publishers were required to send a copy of their published works to the Library of Congress. I surmised the Library of Congress had a battalion of interns whose sole job was to scan or photograph the material for archiving. Sure, they might not keep a hard copy of EVERYTHING - but detailed inventories of all printed matter(you know, on microfiche, like major newspapers do), and a public facility where you could make pilgrimage to access our great national treasure house of information? Absolutely.

So so wrong. To my knowledge, there is no other database like this one for craft/hobby magazines. I really wish my programming skills were up to making it a searchable database. So sorry that they're not. But at least the information is being catalogued and made accessible to the broadest number of people possible.

And people have been using it. I get an astonishing number of contacts by designers who are looking for details on where they had published their own articles, and researchers looking for previous articles on their subject. Then there are the hundreds of people who are just trying to figure out where that pattern was they'd used twenty years ago and wanted to use again but couldn't remember who had published it and where. To all of you, this bibliography is for you.

If you have suggestions, drop me a line at akamoraih[at]gmail.com (and you know to replace the [at], right?).

REMEMBER, Murphy insists the one issue I'm missing of a title is the one you will need information on... While I've completed quite a few magazine runs, I'm a really long way from a majority. If I have the premiere issue, I'll usually at least put up a token page with what bibliographic details I can glean from the issue. If I have more than 50% of a run, I'll go ahead and enter all the issues I have, leaving spaces in the bib page for the missing issues. I'm working on getting scans done of covers to go with the bibliographic details, but still have thousands to go. It's the most tedious part of the process and the slowest, but I think it helps people trying to identify specific issues. Please be patient. If there is a run that you need me to prioritize, just drop me a line.
