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!

Christmas Carolers, Bellevue Doll Club Challenge Dolls

Bellevue Doll Club Nov 2010 challenge~ 4 wooden shaker pegs
We had to create dolls using the pegs shown below. These pegs could be used in the doll body construction or any props along with the dolls. The shapes of the pegs could not be altered.

I created two carolers out of the four pegs. The other two pegs I used for making street lamps.
Christmas Carolers is designed and handmade by craftswithcare © 2010.

Below are dolls by our talented "Bellevue Doll Club" members:
