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!

Penelope, an Izannah Walker inspired paper clay doll on eBay!

Meet Miss Penelope. She is an Izannah Walker inspired doll. Her face has been hand sculpted using paper clay. She went on eBay tonight.
Penelope is a one-of-a-kind doll as all my paper clay dolls are. I can never recreate the same doll ever.

Please click on Penelope auction below and it will take you to her eBay auction.
