Inspiration: Well hello, Dolly!

If I say the word “doll”, what springs to mind? Your childhood companion? A Barbie doll? A rag doll? A horror movie?

If it’s the latter, I can’t help you. However, if any of the others sprang to mind, have a look at some of these works of art… From fabric dolls, knitted dolls, rag dolls, needle felted dolls and primitive dolls, to One of a Kind (OOAK) dolls and art dolls… each carefully and lovingly handcrafted by someone, each with their own style and personality.

If you have a handmade doll that means something to you, I’d love it if you could share a photo with me!
