Handmade dolls are wonderful for many reasons, but one of my favorites is that they are uniquely made just for the child they are given to. My mom made me a doll when I was a girl that I cherished, and no one else had one exactly the same. We are all special, aren't we? :). Love your dolls...and clothes!!!

Mummyzilla said...

I love that handmade dolls are so versatile, and unique rather than mass produced.

Melody J said...

I love that they're personalized in every way (and made with love by super-sweet mama!)

Sara said...

I love that handmade dolls are original, personal, creative, made with love, and not made in China!

Jenn said...

These are beautiful dolls that are customized for each little girl they are meant for - that is an "heirloomy" kind of toy... and it is a rare and beautiful thing to find these days :)

craftytokyomama said...

The faces on your dolls are precious! My little niece would hug one of your dolls to pieces, I can picture it already. Adorable!

PhotoMom said...

LOVE everything about these dolls! ; especially the "heart pocket".

Handmade dolls are special because they are made with love. I like the idea that my daughter can have a "mini her" that she can cuddle with, unlike dolls such as American girl.

Micah said...

I love your dolls! My youngest daughter was given one around the time of her birth by her sweet aunt. I would love to get another for my older daughter, as well as maybe a gift for a niece or friend. Handmade dolls make me feel like I'm giving my children and friends the BEST! I've gotten so many compliments too and pointed them your way.

mattison11 said...

I love your dolls because they remind me of my childhood. I also love the idea of my child snuggling up with a doll made specifically for them. He personalized tags just makes it a truely special gift that will never be forgotten. Keep up the good work :)

KatheG said...

So cute and adorable. I happen to love homemade dolls, etc., as they can bring out a child's imagination and they don't break, don't need batteries or electricity.

Robin Saylor said...

Oh ... so beautiful! Any chance you could make one with an open heart surgery scar for my dear little neice?

Helena said...

your dolls are super cute, I adore the homemade as they don't have that icky commerical look or feel

These dolls are so beautiful and special! My grandma passed away just before my daughter was born and I was thinking of making one in her memory for my little girl- with my grandma's red hair, and her favorite saying tucked in the pocket :)

Meikjn said...

I have 3 girls homemade dolls are a staple. I love that they are unique, and the fabric faces are so warm and soft.

Melanie said...

Your dolls are absolutely beautiful!!! The best thing about anything handmade is the unique-can't buy this in every store'ness!

Three Gem said...

I also have three daughters. In many ways they are the same...facial features, tall and thin, big hearts and great snugglers. But they also have so many, many characteristics that make them unique. Like your dolls. Each stitch the Maker used was unlike any other. Every movement of the Maker's hand was planned and thought out so that each of His creations would be special and cherished. I love your dolls. I think you put a lot of love and thought into them. I wish I was as talented because I'd love to be able to create something that could be cherished and loved and passed down to future generations to be cherished and loved again.

No handmade doll is like any other. They may be similar but not exact. Its a precious way to let you child know they too are like no one else.

North of 25A said...

What precious darlings you create! I am so happy to have found you - thank you for this terrific giveaway. A treasure of a gift for any little girl (of any age ;)
Best,
Colleen

Jessica Jo said...

I love handmade dolls etc because they are so much sturdier than store bought items. They are also so much more unique. If something was honestly handmade, it will be different than every other item ever made. I love that!

Amanda said...

I love that handmade things are made with the heart. Someone put love and attention in to each piece. They usually have more character and personality to them as well. Your dolls are fabulous. I know my daughter would absolutely love them!

I love how soft those little dollys look! the ruffle dreses are darling as well!

I love them! I love handmade dolls because I think they become even more special than mass produced ones. So they're something a child holds on to and may even pass on to their own children some day.

Taylor Wise said...

Your handmade dolls are such sweet keepsakes! I can't wait for you to take more custom orders! My newborn daughter, Avery, has one of your blond dolls but she came out a RED HEAD! Major shock! So now we need a red headed Hidden in My Heart doll with the verse I've used for my miracle baby's wall/blog!

NinjaEema said...

Handmade dolls are made with love. You can't get that at a toy store.

Taralee said...

I love the fact that handmade dolls are unique, and allows for the recipient to feel special that they have something no one else has :) Each handmade doll has some love sewn into it <3 An even bigger plus to handmade items, like yours, they are SAFE for our precious little ones!!!! That is HUGE for me!

Mruna Mistry said...

What I love most is that no two can ever be the same even if you try...
Your dolls have such pretty smiles!

I love that no two dolls are like. And that you can really see a person's creativity in their work and the details. I love the minky for the hair. What a great idea!

I just love your dolls' happy smiles! If I won, I'd want a little red-head. :) leahclaireh(at)gmail(dot)com

groverfamily said...

I love the uniqueness and personalization of handmade dolls. No two dolls are identical...just like our children! I also love being able to personalize with scripture (I haven't found that option on a "store bought" doll). I love the huggable cuddliness of handmade dolls. A companion for getting through the good days, bad days, and sick days of childhood. Perfect for a first birthday gift that would be cherished for years!

These are super cute!

sweet limes said...

I make my kids handmade dolls and other toys, it is such a great way to really show you the love you have for them. My daughter in particular loves dolls but the only ones she plays will constantly are the handmade ones I've done for me.

hollyctr said...

Dolls are a special thing for a little girl. I think when they are handmade with love it just adds to the magic and wonder of that first friend!

MacGyver's Lovechild said...

they are soooo adorable! I have two girls and a third baby on teh way. dolls are so loved at our house. flyandnest@telus.net

tammy olson said...

What a generous gift. Nothing can beat handmade. No two are the same. They have so much more character than anything made in China! I have a little 3 y/o who would love a little doll with a very special little pocket. Very cute.

Daniela said...

Handmade dolls are just so more authentic. How can a little person possibly love a plastic doll that was twetny bucks? Our youngest picked the handmade doll from mama quite naturally and has been in love with it ever since their first contact...

Wierman Family said...

I love the fact that personalized dolls can be made to "match" our family. As the mother of a child adopted from Ethiopia, I often struggle to find beautiful dolls that look like my child and doll sets that have a range of skin colors represented. Your dolls are beautiful and would be loved by both my girls!

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

They're so sweet! I think most handmade dolls are made with love. I can tell that you love yours, and that makes all the difference in the world! :)

Lisa said...

Handmade dolls are great simply because they are handmade...with love. And you don't see them on commercials. And little girls play with them and as big girls we keep them forever!

Meagan said...

I would love to win one of these for my neice! :) I love that these dolls are soft and you can cuddle them. Perfect for young children. Super cute too!

Bethany said...

my daughter would love that!

mameelynn said...

These are so cute!! After having two boys first our little girl doesn't have many girly toys. I have been trying to make and get more handmade toys for my children because then their toys are one of a kind. I also love the fact that hand made toys seem to help children use their imagination more because there isn't a set way to play with them!

What a fabulous idea - I love these dolls! My favorite thing about homemade dolls is that they're soft and natural and unique. So much better than the hard, factory-made plastic ones from the store.

Katy said...

Those are beautiful. I think that handmade dolls have an "heirloom" feel to them. I love the thought of my little girl saving this doll to give to her little girl one day.

Sierra Coronitas Chronicles said...

First saw your beautiful doll at Mt. Hope Chronicles. LOVED IT!! I think this is a great gift for my foster daughter. She may be leaving soon and has been with us for 9 months. She was 6 months old when she came to us so this would be a great thing for her to take with her. God Bless!

As for handmade toys, well, they're just filled with love in a way that no mass manufactured toy will ever be. How could you not love them?

Ramona said...

I love, love homemade dolls and toys as so much love is put into them and they are unique, not the same and just wonderful!

Phoenix Peacock said...

I love having a nursery filled with handmade goodness. First - with all the care that gets put into them, I fill like my babies are surrounded by an abudance of love. And also, because it is supporting artists and crafters rather than giving money to large cooperations. And finally, I love how unique the nursery is. No two items alike
Great giveaway! I'd be delighted to win!

Katherine said...

The more I look at these blogs the more I want to make a doll for my nice. Is it wrong that I want it to look like me?

Richelle said...

Those are adorable! Love them!

The Fam said...

Wow, you've got a great product/idea here! I hope this giveaway increases your sales through the roof! I love the idea of a doll made with time, even if it is a person we don't know. Time and care makes anything more special.

Sarah said...

Handmade dolls are softer and cuter. My 17 month old daughter would love one of these dolls!

MamaWestWind said...

Love them!!!! Adorable. I have boys so maybe it could be for me! Are you interested in making a boy doll? My son's 2 yr Bday is coming up soon.

What I love about handmade is the love that is expressed in them! Thanks!!!

I like that handmade dolls can be personalized and they seem to be more special since time was taken to make each stitch. Love has to be stitched in, right?

I still have the handmade dolls my mom made for me when I was little, and they still give me great joy, 30+ years later, knowing how much love she put into them!

These dolls would make me happy to have on my bedside table. Great giveaway and such talent - you should be proud! Thanks bunches!

Nicole said...

Wow- what beautiful dolls! When I was a kid I loved all my stuffed animals and dolls fiercely, but the ones with a story stay with you forever. A handmade doll is so special because you know for someone to take so much time making something, they must love what they do and put that love into what they make.

Thanks for doing this giveaway! :)

Michelle {Daydream Believers} said...

I love all things handmade, especially clothes, toys, and dolls for my daughters - I just love knowing that my special girls are playing with special dolls that are truly unique and one of a kind; just like them! ;)

Deborah in Atlanta said...

what I like about handmade dolls/animals - in many cases, such as yours on this blog, you can order a doll with unique features for a special someone. The one you have with the light skin, blonde hair and blue eyes would be perfect for my granddaughter. The perfect gift. For the perfect angel. My granddaughter.

momof3girls said...

I want one for me!!! maybe I'll share with my daughter! LOL! They are absolutely lovely. I appreciate and love all the time, energy and love that goes into making something. Thank you for participating.

This is my first visit here, and wow, those dolls are beautiful. Thank you for the chance to win one. I think handmade is so much better, because every stitch contains the care and time of the person who made it.

Sasha said...

I love the little rosy cheeks, that so cute!
My little one loves homemade (to be honest he hasn't had much choice!) I like thinking someone put time and effort in to produce something they thought he would like, that means so much to me.

the frog princess said...

I love that handmade dolls and toys are made with care and precision! I used to work in toys, and it's somewhat odd to see a whole box of the same thing all smushed together!

kiwisara said...

These dolls are sweet and fun and so very cute! :-)

Irina said...

I like handmade dolls for their uniqueness. thanks for the chance

babalisme said...

I love handmade doll because there's no other like it, and it can be built to resemble the future owner, making her/him treasure the doll more than store bought one. Same goes with animals, a favorite animal with certain favorite color is sometimes hard to find in any retail store. Also, they serve as greater room decoration. And they won't be hurt as much if you step on it accidentally, unlike Transformers stuff.

Stephanie and Carlos said...

What do I love about handmade? Well I trust the energy behind all our handmade items. So much so that our youngest daughter Bubble needs an operation and the one thing I can control is the energy around her so I am on a mission to surround her with only handmade toys, sheets, bedding, etc. It's what she is use to and it will be no different and as a mum I want the best for her. Your doll would just be the icing on the cake. I am tearing up just thinking about the message you could include. Just know that to our family it might be the most special gift we could receive...

love and light Steph

Beth Hawks said...

Anything handmade is miles above store bought - but these are so adorable because you can personalize them! So cute!

Jenn said...

I had a cloth doll so similar to these when I was a little girl and I loved her so my heart still leaps when I see them! I think handmade dolls are such a wonderful gift for a little girl (or boy!)

Handmade is always unique and I can see that your dolls would have a personality all their own. Very special indeed.

Jennifer Ladd said...

Love these dolls! So adorable!

What I like best about handmade dolls is that they CAN be customized. I didn't realize how difficult it was to find a doll that wasn't white skinned and blond-haired until I adopted my two daughters from Vietnam and Ethiopia. It is so hard to find them dolls that look just like them. These handmade dolls could be made with their hair,their skin, and their eyes, and that is just awesome!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Wow... Wish I could sew as good as you! I like handmade dolls because they are so much more personal and unique. No one has one quite like yours. I have been trying to learn how to make them, actually.

Rebekah said...

I love your dolls! They are so cute, and what girl doesn't love a doll that looks like her? The personalized message is the extra touch that makes these dolls the perfect gift!

Robyn said...

when I was younger I used to make myself dolls, though they were far from perfect! My 3yo daughter has gotten a hold of them now and loves them more than I ever did. I think handmade is so timeless.

what I love most is that you can customize them, by hair/eye color and skin tone. I also love the vintage feel of these dolls. Something more special about these than a doll in the store.

Handmade dolls are so unique. A mass produced one would never have a wee heart with a message like yours. Such a lovely detail!

I love handmade dolls because they are always unique, just like the little girls and boys who love them!

These are adorable! I would love one for my little girl. Handmade dolls are just so much softer and had more personality and love than store bought.

I babysit for an adorable little girl (and hoping for another soon). It's important to me that the toys they play with while in my care are safe, creative, and fun. It's really hard to fill a toy box with handmade toys and still have any money left at the end of the week!! This doll would be so loved!!

These are quite possibly the cutest things I've seen in a really long while. Adorable! What I love best about hand made dolls and toys is the love that goes into them. Even if they're made without knowing the intended recipient, you can so often see that love that the artist or designer put into them. Thank you so much for taking part in Giveaway Day, and for offering up such a great prize! (My daughter's first birthday is in July. One of your dolls would be an amazing birthday gift for her!)

I think hand made dolls have more personality and are just not the cookie cutter stereotype and increase a child's creativity! Thanks for a great giveaway!

Jamie said...

How sweet! I love the individuality. Plus, they are just so sweet and innocent.

Cassie said...

I love handmade dolls because they are just so soft normally and they have a wonderful appeal to children! I love the dresses that you have made for these dolls... looking forward to hopefully winning and then I get to decide right? I don't have to decide right now? I hope i don't! :) too indecisive right now.

Cass said...

Oh so cute! I am new to your blog via the SMS giveaways and I have now added you to my Google Reader list. :)
I love handmade anything (dolls, animals, food...) because it always has a little piece of the creator in it. A little extra piece of love.
Have a wonderful day!

Suzanne said...

I like that they are more snugly and handmade!

Skooks said...

What's not to like?! They are one of my favorite things of all time to make because there is no better feeling than seeing a child light up and HUG something you made. It is just awesome. I love the concept of your dolls. Really beautiful.

Cassiescuddles said...

such a cute doll. I love the way little girls fall in love with their dolls, it become their special friend. If you see hundreds the same, it does take away from that specialness of your own little friend made just for you. Thanks for the chance to win.
