I want to share with you two great doll makers I found as I was searching for little people to live in my dollhouse.
The first is Mike Barbour who is a member of the International Guild of Miniature Artisans or IGMA (no surprise there!) who specializes in unique, hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind dolls, as seen in the images above.
Next up are handcrafted dolls created by Marsha Mees of SassyMiniDolls.com. I stumbled on to her store’s site via her Esty shop and couldn’t help but share her work with you, as seen in the images below.
As the title of her homepage states, she specializes in creating sassy dolls, which have a sort of attitude to them! I also recommend you checking out her blog as well.
What I learned about handmade dolls:
Like most of my general complaints about the world of miniatures in general, I’ve learned that buying handcrafted dolls are expensive! I am going to have to start counting my pennies. =)
