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!

SOLD! Anetta currently lives in South Carolina.

Anetta is a roundhead cloth doll with bendable arms and legs. She is made in the style of the wooden dolls of yesteryear. I have antiqued her face, her arms, and her legs to give her the look of a well loved doll. Please click on 'Anetta eBay Auction' below and it will take you to her eBay auction.

Wow Mithua!
You did a great Job on her. I thought she was made of paper clay but then I read you said she was all fabric. Great Great Job!

Blessings, Mae

I am the extremely lucky person who now has Anetta in my home. All I can say is that words do not express how impressed I am with this phenominal doll. Pictures do not do her justice. I can't wait to see more of your work Mithua. Thanks again!!
