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 Challenge doll~Brianna Grace

I will be making Brianna Grace inspired by a very sweet girl named Arianna. I will try recreating the same clothing style as the little girl is wearing.

Below is Arianna Vohra's picture. The picture is copyrighted by Sumit Vohra of Admissions Nursery

Most of the materials needed to create the Brianna Grace doll has already been purchased and I will also be using stuff from my craft stash. The fabric for the lace arm warmer was difficult to find, but I just had to get the one that matched the closest even though it costed a little more.
