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!

Izannah Walker inspired paper clay doll!

Below is a picture of my current Izannah Walker style doll who now wears a dress and a bonnet. I need to sew her drawers and petticoat.

She has attached thumbs like the original Izannah Walker dolls.
She will be on auction on eBay on Sunday, April 13th.

Hi Mithua,
Thanks so much for visiting my new blog, and for the wonderful comment. I've added your site to my blog links, and would love for you to add mine to yours.

I got back late last night from a very entertaining doll luncheon and haven't had much time to look around your website or blog, but will do so today. I can't wait! I just love your IW inspired doll, by the way.
