    Here are pics of some of the dolls I made for Craft Shops quite awhile ago. They are my own designs and patterns. Some are tall and some are short. The quilter dolls have spool necklaces and hold quilts made by me. The teacher dolls hold chalkboards; some hold babies. I like making one-of-a-kind items best of all. The name of the doll is "Miss Floppy." All their make-up is mine. I used 3-D puffy ink for their eyes and chalkboards. Each doll is numbered on the rear. Was in the process of registering them for trademark as I had a buyer in a Manhattan Shop who wanted to sell them. I decided not to as I was already working a full time job. So I just wanted to share my love of dollmaking with you today. I enjoyed seeing them again and decided to take pics. Hope you enjoy them too!! :D

    I love the hairstyles of the 1930's so the front one was one of my early creations. The white in the pic is sunlight showing on their hair.

    I made dolls with the same body style as yours, and dressed them in Amish style clothing, men and women, and I made what I called "Sleepy Babies",sock dolls dressed in clown style , one piece clothing and pointed hats. I loved making them, and it was fun until I started getting so many orders to fill it took the fun away. I think you made a wise decision.

    Yes, life is too short to spend working yourself in a tizzy! Bet your dolls were just adorable!! They really are fun doing them one-of-a-kind and I particularly enjoyed making something that was safe for children.

    Oh, thanks for telling me -- I'll go back and check it out! Unfortunately, in the Picture Section, we are not able to edit the titles. We can only edit titles in Classified Section, PDA Section and Tutorials Section. They need to allow us to add comments to our titles down the road, but we won't hold our breath! haha. Will go and look up your little boy doll. I really enjoyed paper dolls when I was a kid along with sewing with my girlfriends making doll clothes when I was 6.

    It's not very often you see something that you think should be patented, but these are really awesome.
    i guess you'd rather do it for the enjoyment than let it become "work".
    They surely would sell like hotcakes, wow! I positively love them, scraplvr! :XD:

    WoW! What a great compliment!! Thank you so much!! Yes, it was for the pure enjoyment of making these dolls I loved and not mass producing them. So very glad you enjoyed seeing my work and love them!!
