Please Recommend a Website for Doll Crafters

Today I’d like to look at some of the creators and websites that inspire my doll clothes and doll craft designs.

I’d also like to hear from you… Which doll collectors and doll crafters’ websites do you frequent online? Let us know in the comments!

If you’re looking for inspiration, Pinterest has a plethora of doll craft ideas (and some free patterns) that can fill your mind with the many possible ways to dress your dolls.

The Chelly Wood doll (a Spin Master Liv doll that has been re-designed to look like the real doll clothing designer, Chelly Wood) is seated at her desk in her office. The wall of the office is a mottled purple color behind her open laptop. The doll's fingers touch the keyboard which is resting on an extended arm of the desk. Her computer screen shows the "Share Your Creations" page with three doll clothes displays under the introductory text. The logo appears in the lower left corner of the image.

Do you wish you had a place to show off your creations? Try Instagram. It’s not just for folks who love dolls, but you can also display paper crafts, crochet projects, plushies, miniatures, and so much more!

Instagram, I’ve found, is most useful for users of mobile phones, rather than desktop computers.

The image shows a white cell phone on a purple polka dot cotton background. The screen on the cell phone shows a scene from Romeo and Juliet with dolls, which is a stop motion video that doll clothes designer Chelly Wood created, together with the help of her two children. This is the thumbnail image for her first "Let's do a pick" youtube shorts video suggestions and concept announcement.

I haven’t been on Instagram as much lately, but I’d like to jump back into it. My Instagram account is used for the early stages of my projects. If you’d like to see what inspires my patterns, you might consider following me there.

Does your Barbie need some furniture? My Froggie Stuff offers fantastic video tutorials that demonstrate how to make everything from a bedroom set to a living room fireplace.

Another place I like to visit is Etsy. This is a place where seamstresses (like me) can sell their doll clothes creations (and anything else you make for your dolls). You can buy or sell your own doll clothes patterns there, home-made doll shoes and accessories, and doll furniture items.

Have you seen that tall wooden hutch in my Romeo and Juliet with Dolls stop motion video? I bought that on Etsy!

Etsy also offers tiny buttons, handmade labels, and doll-sized zippers, for those of us who like to add tiny details to our doll clothes sewing projects.

Most seamstresses know about JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts, but did you know they have a website where you can download coupons and see their latest products? Here’s a link to JoAnn’s online store.

Spoonflower is a website where you can buy fabric with unusually tiny print. Having trouble finding a pinstripe that’s narrow enough to make Ken a 1940’s-style zoot suit? Spoonflower is the place to go!

Do you have a favorite online place you can recommend? Does your own website offer something that sewists and/or doll collectors might like to know about? Please leave a link in the comments.

  1. I don’t think I could ever pick a few sites for doll clothes. The best way is to do a Search in your web browser, such as “doll clothes patterns . . .” and include the size of the doll. You will be amazed at the number of sites that will come up. You can also include the word “FREE” in your search. Hope this helps 😉 Melinda

    1. My idea was this: if people submit links to websites that are creative and deal with dolls, I’ll round up all those links and make another blog post where I share your ideas.
