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!

New dolls on eBay-A fashion doll and a cute raggedy doll!

Below are a few pictures of my latest creations....

First is Alayna, a jointed cloth doll. Her face and hands have been needle sculpted and hand painted. She wears a beautiful peacock feather print skirt.
The second is a raggedy doll named Bella.

I hope you enjoy looking at their pictures and also take the time to visit their auctions.
