  • Doll Craft Section

    I'd like to see a section for Doll Crafts - I'm sure there are lots of people out there either making dolls or dressing dolls.

    When I had time I used to make porcelain dolls from kits and dress them. I have recently become interested in Ball Jointed Dolls (made mostly in East Asia) they are absolutely stunning and I have 3 upstairs waiting for me to find the time to dress them!

    So what about it? Are there other doll makers out there who would like this craft included in the forum?

    Hi Jude,
    I think a doll section is a brilliant idea, I have a couple of reborns on my site at the moment but I also make the clothing and accessories for them as well.
    There are so many different kinds of dolls that people collect and make but there aren't enough groups that cover this subject. I make mohair bears also and there are loads of groups for bear makers. So come on anyone that makes items for dolls or the dolls them selves join us and we may get our section on here.
    Hugs

          Would that include dolls houses and/or shadow boxes that I used to do...
          (although I still have quite a few packed away but the usual thing of prospective buyers not wanting to pay more than a few pounds for something that used to take a few days to complete!)...anyone else make shadow boxes?

            Hi Nettie,

            I think it should include anything doll related so doll's houses and minatures should be included too...

            What's a shadow box??? I'm very curious..




            I bet there are more doll makers out there - do you think if we got enough posts we'd get the section?

              Great idea. I finished my first Waldorf Doll the other day and was thinking the same thing. I also made a tiny quilt for my daughter's dolls house the other day. I could've posted that in a section devoted to Doll crafts too.

                The ones I made were like room scenes from a dolls house. I first stuck 2 decoupage deep frames together, to make a 3" deep box frame, and then backed it with board. Then 'wallpapered' inside, arranged the furniture, made little table cloths, clothes coming out of drawers out of pieces of lace, and then 'hung' pictures or made little perfume bottles out of beads then some material for the carpet. Then edged this all in lace, bought a picture frame with glass from charity shops and then stuck that on. I've got bathrooms, dining rooms, kitchen scenes, bedrooms with bed and chest of drawers, cots with baby things in. I'll try and find them and take some piccies

                      Hi All,
                      Looks like the doll makers and collectors are finally coming out of the wood work. I agree that the section should be for anything doll related, I make reborn dolls, clothes, quilts and accessories.
                      I have just had an order for a 4ft Golly as well, Oh my the things we crafters let ourselves in for.
                      Hugs

                          I collect porcelain and reborn dolls and also have a dolls house my dad made for me when I was little (20+ years ago) - hubby thinks I'm mad lol.

                          We're in the process of looking into a doll's house for our nieces for Christmas so a doll section would be fab!!
