Welcome to craftswithcare!

Doll-making is my hobby. I sell most of my dolls on eBay and Etsy, except for a few which I give as gifts to family and friends.

I started out making my first cloth doll a few years ago. I have always loved cloth dolls and it had always been my wish to create my own dolls someday.

Nowadays I also make dolls using different media like paper clay, wood, felt etc. Some of my paper clay doll designs are inspired by Izannah Walker and other famous doll makers of yore. Most of my paper clay and wood dolls are one-of-a-kind. For my cloth dolls, I buy small quantities of fabrics at a time, so no two dolls will be alike. I also experiment with various doll-making techniques of my own.

I also enjoy collecting antique dolls, and reading and researching about different kinds of dolls.

The picture above is not a doll from days gone by, but a photo of my mother when she was a baby!

Like my friend Robin of 'outside the box primitives', I too was forced to boycott eBay this week and join the Etsy revolution. I really love Etsy. I am getting to know many wonderful people and many talented crafters on Etsy.
I sold my first doll Buzz B. last night. It felt great knowing that people out there appreciate your work!
The things that I really like about Etsy are its innovative tools and also the visual appeal. Unlike eBay, my items show up on search the moment I post it on Etsy. Hey, I am not complaining....I like eBay too. It is the new feedback system which I am not very fond of.
