Show us

4 Aug 2011


I know that quite a few of you make dolls, for fun, for family, for charity, for selling.
And I know some of you collect dolls, all kinds, hand made and vintage dolls

I would love to see what you are making or collecting.

Would you like to leave a comment if you have a blog or a Flickr page or Etsy shop where you share your dolls and then all of us dolly people can come and visit.

in the morning sun

I do know that this reader, ptite fanchon , makes dolls,
 and that this one, Pippa'sGarden,  has just made her first waldorf inspired doll
 and this one, MimiO , makes beautiful dolls too.

I would love it if you had time to share your dollies with us.
Can't wait to see what treasures we discover.

  1. Hi Jenny!

    I'd love to share my love of dolls with you and your readers :-) You can visit me at: and find lots of patterns for crochet dolls, and even some for cloth, plus some tutorials, including wig making and Waldorf dollmaking.

    Thank you for the invitation to share, Jenny.


  2. Look at all your sweet creations in process. Those would be about all the clothes they'd need in our current heat wave here!

    Here is a picture of the doll which I made for a friend's niece recently:!/photo.php?fbid=2203341400840&set=a.2016775096799.123570.1166510082&type=1&theater

  5. I just blogged about a Kaethe Kruse inspired doll that I finished (late) last night. She has a moulded cloth oil-painted head and a cloth body. I tried to dress her "in the style" of the early Kaethe Kruse dolls. I'm also hosting a pop on over and have a look!

    PS I ALWAYS look at your posts, Jenny - I love to see what you have been making!

  6. Hello Jenny,
    I've always admired the little people you help into the world. I make dolls too, beginning with making some for my children ... and then others. I don't sell very many but every now and then a little one is born here who finds a new home with another family.

    You are very welcome to visit my blog to see my dolls at

    many blessings and thanks for your delightful, careful and inspiring work.
