Using the "Pounce" feature on Etsy that allows you to discover active artisans still striving for their first sale, I stumbled upon these four artisans that create beautiful (and often cuddly) art dolls that you'll love browsing through and possibly fall in love with just as I have!
Charming Bears ...creating one being at a time.
Mony Vesseur from Vancouver Island, BC, Canada
Adorable bears with cute little faces and lots of inspiration behind each doll that's created, this shop has a handful of charming bears looking for new homes and ready to soak in lots of love. The collection includes not just bears but mohair cats, hand-stitched sock monkeys and more!
mary187 - Marina's Passion for Dolls
Marina Yax from Gerrardstown, West Virginia
A shop filled with unique one-of-a-kind art dolls created by hand with attention to detail. Each doll is entirely handcrafted without the use of molds or patterns. The faces and hands are hand-painted and the costumes worn by the dolls are filled with extravagant details for a special touch and unique style.
Studio10359 - We make, paint, draw and build things.
Anna and her Two Sisters from Studio10359
The handpainted faces of fabric dolls with pretty dresses and lovely hair sit beside herds of fabric doll horses in this shop ran by three sisters with an over abundance of creativity and lots of personality. Offered among these beautiful dolls they also offer a handful of pretty fabric pounces as well!
Natalie Drest - Funky Handmade Doll Clothes
Natalie Drest from Canberra, Australia
What's the fun of having cute dolls to play with if you don't have pretty clothes to dress them up in? This shop is filled with lots of creative, colorful one-of-a-kind doll clothes designed using re-purposed fabrics combined with fresh and funky style. Merino and Alpaca wool, cotton, felt, lace and natural threads abound!
Each of the artists listed above has shops filled with creativity that abounds. Some are new, some are older and just need a little love. Be sure to stop by and take a browse if you see something you like and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
