Recently I've become fascinated by pressed felt dolls like, Lenci, Maggie Iacono, and John Wright.  However after some amount of googling I haven't been able to find tutorials about how to make these dolls.  Does anyone have any information or know any books that might explain how these dolls are made?

I noticed this link from love2teach in the making a BJD thread.

This seems somewhat promising since many of the qualities of the pressed felt dolls that I enjoy seem to be at least semi present in these dolls.  She even does a molded cloth face as a later lesson.  I'm trying to figure out what stuff these classes expect you to have and decide if I want to pay 50 bucks to learn a bunch of techniques that I can then hopefully revamp into something closer to what I want.
