Mimi Kirchner was featured in one of my favorite doll-making books:  We Make Dolls. Her distinctive style has made her plush characters popular among stitchers and buyers both. My favorite thing about Kirchner’s work: the detail. I read that she keeps her patterns simple so she can focus on adding details.

Exhibit A: the tattooed lumberjack
