Some of my favourite punch shapes are the old Mega sized Nankong punches. It's unfortunate these are no longer available (although a few shapes were picked-up by The Punch Bunch).
I find that the seashell is one of the most versatile shapes to create with. Here is an example of a couple of dolls I made; a Raggedy Ann as well as a more modern version. Both the dresses and the apron are made with a slightly trimmed seashell.
I also made a boy doll to match, again we have Raggedy Andy and a more modern version:
I've written the instructions for the modern boy and girl dolls (if I have time I'll do the Raggedy Ann & Andy one tomorrow).
If you click on the image it will take you to the full size version which you can right click and save.
