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!

Margrethe,a beautiful cloth doll by renowned doll artist Lone Pierette!

I received Margrethe from Denmark a few weeks ago. She arrived gift wrapped inside a beautiful box. It was a sheer pleasure to receive her! She has been beautifully made from head to toe. I love her face, hands, clothes, and not to mention the details on her feet! Thank you Lone for sending me such a wonderful doll which I will treasure forever.
Margrethe has been named after Margrethe II, the reigning Queen of Denmark.

Lone, Margrethe is doing fine! She behaves only when Roxy is around..LOL..Don't know why she is not too fond of the big furry..probably because she doesn't like the slobbery kisses she gets...

All the dolls here love Margrethe and they treat her like a Queen!
