Where to Buy
Dollybird vol. 30 is the second dolly book announced for a December 2019 release. I’m eager to flip through all the pages.
I’m looking forward to learning more about the new Hina-chan. I’m a sucker for dolls who have a smiling expression. So there’s a high probability that I will add her to my collection.
I also can barely contain my excitement for learning awesome tips and techniques for sewing for 1/3 scale dolls.
And I’m intrigued by the new BJD Kumako. I can’t miss this chance to learn more about her and the company bringing her to life.
Hobby Japan has the vol. 30 release set for December 24, 2019. I’ve added the book to my ever growing dolly wishlist and plan to welcome the book home after the holidays –can’t wait!
