An Introduction...

Welcome to my new blogspot...and to start, a little about my journey here...

I have a background in costume design and I have been making dolls for many years. My recent creations have been cloth dolls inspired by antique dolls and my family history (another of my favourite pastimes). I also love creating anything with fabric and I'm enjoying experimenting with different styles and designing unique items.

In this blog I will share doll info, tips and tricks that I have learnt over the years and also pics and even a few patterns, so please check back often to see what's new....

A bee in my bonnet!

I made quite a few of these bonnets for the Pudsey fair, thinking how nice they would look on the wooden peg dolls...and sold most of them to teddy bear artists..turned out they looked lovely on the little antique style bears too!


  1. Hi,

    I really like your blog, I always visit it whenever I had time, I really like your posts especially those about dolls and I hope to see more from your blog, so excited to read your future posts.

    Anyway, I found this website that can create a super-realistic doll heads of anyone from just a photo. Imagine making doll of yourself, your kids, your boss or your favorite celebrity!

    Apparently they can make the heads in many scales to fit Barbie-like dolls, Tonner dolls or even smaller figurines like Polly Pocket.

    Anyway, thought it might be interesting to your readers.

    Best regards,

  2. I love the wooden peg doll. The bonnet looks lovely on her. I have a few of these lovely ladies myself.

  3. I just discovered your blog and love it. I love old china dolls and just dolls in general. I hope you decide to start blogging again! Have you moved to another site?
