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!

"In the Pink" A collaborative book project 2008

Below is Zelda, a 4 inch doll created for "In the Pink", a collaborative book project.
Her face, body, and shoes have been hand-painted and she wears a pink polka dot dress.

Please click below to see pink art created by other talented artists who have taken part in this project.

Zelda has been placed next to a small spice bottle to give you an idea of her tiny size.

Thanks Lone!

Mom's interest is in cooking and not sewing which is great for me! I am getting delicious home cooked meals everyday:)!
