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!

Grace, a Patriotic cloth doll on eBay!




I made a Patriotic cloth doll named Grace last week and listed her on eBay last night. She is my second Patriotic doll for sale on eBay this year.
Grace's face has been needle sculpted. She has button jointed arms and bendable legs. I loved creating her and am very happy with the way she turned out.
She is looking forward to celebrating the 4th of July this year and many more to come! She is a happy girl and will bring the lucky winner lots of joy and happiness!

Below are a couple of pictures of Grace...







A Very Happy 4th of July to all of you!
