Doll Making Kits

Life has been very busy lately...summer vacation is starting to wind down and the kids will be back in school in a few weeks.  I will miss having them around, but I am looking forward to getting back into full swing making dolls! 

After a lot of deliberation, I have decided to offer a doll making kit.  There will only be a couple at first, and they will be available at a lower price point until all of the kinks are worked out.  I am hoping to get feedback from the first few to make the kit better for the rest of mamas that want to make a special doll for their kids.  The kit will include a pre-made head with nose, a pre-sewn body in your choice of color, lots of yummy wool for stuffing, a crochet cap in a color of your choice with matching yarn for hair, and plenty of fun yarn to make your doll unique.  I am working on finishing up the written instructions today, the listing will go active in the shop Saturday, July 24 at about noon EST.  The kits will be shipped out within about 10 business days.

Have a great Friday!  XOXO Debra


  1. Are you reading my mind? I was looking for another doll kit for my daughter!!!! I really hope to get one because the first doll I made am not happy with(although my daughter does like) and I understand what I did wrong with it and want to try again.

  2. That is so fantastic! I can't wait!!

  3. This is a great idea - I've been thinking about one of these dolls for my granddaughter for Christmas. :-)

    Looking forward to seeing them in your shop!!


  4. I love the idea! I ordered one of Joy's kits and I swear I tried at least ten times by now to make a head - and it's just not firm enough! My hands get tired quarter way through and this just sucks! I would love to make a doll myself and will keep trying, but a pre-made head with a crocheted cap - you would be my hero :) Though my DH might kill me for spending even more money on dolls :S Oh well, maybe I'll just have it shipped to work :P
