About the shop

Hello there!
When I was first married (ages ago, now divorced) my husband and I rented a room from this lady and her daughter. She made clothes and other items from her garage and she would sell them in downtown LA at the fashion district. You can sell anything and everything there. I was in awe at her set up, just like a small warehouse!

At the time I had no interest in sewing or any kind of crafting whatsoever but my husband insisted that I try it. She taught me how to work the machine and how to make different items such as blankets, clothing, dolls, etc. Let me tell you she was tough! She expected perfection and had no issues making me start over and over again. I learned how to make different items and as I saw the projects come together I was overjoyed!

Eventually we moved to start on our own and I would make items for family and friends as just a hobby, mainly gifts for birthdays, Christmas, baby showers, etc. It wasn’t until some years later after my divorce and layoffs from work that a friend had suggested I try selling the rag dolls for extra income. They are what brings me the most joy. They come to life, they are a little girl’s best friend. They are there for tea parties, outdoor adventures, someone to talk to when they get in trouble, someone to hug and squeeze when they don’t feel well or need to get a shot. No plastic or vinyl doll can do that.

When deciding on the dolls I remembered shopping for my daughters and being wary of small parts. I remember looking at other items and seeing a danger in everything! I want my customers to feel reassured in knowing none of the rag dolls have small parts. Their faces are completely embroidered, there are no buttons or any other small parts, their clothes don’t come off and they are washable. So very important as I know how rough littles one can be! You can see videos of some of them in real life on my youtube channel in my shop announcement.

I still hear that lady in my head yelling about having everything perfect and to be honest I still find errors no one else would notice, but at the end of the day it’s all well worth it especially when I read the reviews or get messages from my customers as to why they buy the rag dolls. Some of the stories are just so touching.

I am very blessed and thankful to all my customers for allowing these dolls to be in their little ones lives. Thank you!

    I think every little girl needs a doll she can cuddle and snuggle with. A rag doll brings a little girl laughter, giggles, comfort and love.

Frequently asked questions
What is a rag doll?

Rag dolls are dolls that are soft unlike plastic or vinyl dolls that are difficult to maneuver. They are easy to cuddle and snuggle with, providing comfort and joy for any little girl. Cuddling with them when your little one sleeps or snuggling with them if your little one is not feeling well or unhappy. They are lightweight, easy to carry and travel with.

What are rag dolls made of?

Most rag dolls are made of hypo allergenic cotton fiber fill for the body and cotton blend fabric for the clothing. Some, not all, have plastic buttons for eyes. Mostly the facial features are embroidered.

What is the recommended age of a child for a rag doll?

Since most rag dolls are soft and have embroidered facial features the age recommendation would be 1 year and up, as long as they are no longer putting objects in their mouths. The yarn hair would taste yucky! However, dolls with plastic-button eyes should be for four or five years old and up. Just to be on the safe side.

How do you maintain rag dolls?

Rag dolls are made of fabric so they can be washed in the washing machine and air dried. It is recommended to use a laundry mesh bag to keep the hair intact. The hair is made of yarn. For dolls that have buns and different hair styles, just spot clean them when necessary. Do not put them in the dryer, it will ruin their hair!

Aren’t rag dolls out of fashion with the technology of today?

There are many benefits to rag dolls. They not only give joy to little girls but also they are unique, help develop fine motor and cognitive skills, they will be able to figure out how to take care of someone else, and how they interact with others. An example: if a child is being mean to your little one at daycare, etc they will take those actions out on the doll. It is a great asset to monitor how your daughter is being treated in places other than the home.
