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!

R2RD group launch dolls

Meet Mina, a sweet oil painted cloth doll. She has been made from a pattern by Susan Fosnot.

I belong to a very talented eBay group named Rags to Riches dolls. We will be having our first group launch starting April 27th. Mina will be on auction on eBay on the 27th. Please search R2RD to view our artists' one-of-a-kind dolls and art during our group launch.

Below is my work in progress. I still need to do a lot of work on her and she may or may not be my launch doll.
