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!

Look-alike dolls~ "Ronnie and Anvesha"

Anvesha and Ronnie dolls are my future projects. I have always wanted to make look-alike dolls and am so glad that I have finally found the perfect models that I had been looking for all these years. These two dolls will be my second and third attempts to create look-alike dolls. Just wish me luck that I succeed in doing so. The first look-alike doll I created was inspired by my friend's daughter, a very sweet child named Maya. Maya was created about 2 years ago.

I am looking forward to working on these two dolls soon. Ronnie is my son. He is my most precious and favorite doll. Anvesha is a very sweet friend and a real doll. I am so inspired by her sweet and innocent face. I will try to create the same clothing styles for the dolls as shown in the picture above.

Please check back soon for updates.
