Welcome to HelloDollies. Here you will find Raggedy Ann dolls with a twist. If you have always wanted a Raggedy Ann doll dressed up as an alien ... a pirate ... a ninja ... a cowgirl ... completely in pink from head to toe ... then this is the shop for you. I am very happy to create custom items.

Payment
Payment accepted via PayPal from everywhere.

Australian customers are able to pay via Direct Debit or money order if they like.
Shipping
I ship via Australia Post within 24-48 hours of receiving payment for ready-made items. Custom items take 5-10 days to make before shipping.

I pack everything to guard against breakage and water damage.

All packages are shipped from Australia.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your doll, please email me straight away. I would hope that you'd give me the chance to make you happy than lose you as a customer.

Refunds and exchanges are discussed on a case by case basis.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am often asked why my dolls cost so much (although after I made this list I reckon they're pretty reasonably priced LOL). Here's a run down of the process I go through to make a doll:

* Drive to fabric store.
* Visualise a doll made with every fabric I see.
* Narrow down the selection to bolts I can carry.
* Wait in line to purchase whilst balancing 13 bolts of fabric and a handful of threads.
* Drive home.
* Sort fabric into storage bags before husband notices addition to already bulging stash.
* Make notes on reciepts so I can cost each doll later.
* Choose a pattern and fabrics.
* Trace around pattern pieces.
* Cut out pattern pieces.
* Decide if I'm making one I may as well make three.
* Choose another pattern and 2 more fabrics.
* Trace around pattern pieces.
* Cut out pattern pieces.
* Paint eyes on faces.
* Sew up all dolls arms and legs.
* Stuff arms and legs.
* Pin and sew bodies.
* Stuff bodies.
* Paint shoes & socks/stockings on legs.
* Sew clothes whilst paint dries.
* Sew legs into bodies.
* Embroider faces.
* Dress dolls.
* Decide they need accessories and make little felt hat from scratch.
* Choose hairstyle for each doll.
* Sew on hair.
* Sew on hat.
* Add buttons to dresses if they need them.
* Take photos.
* Realise she has no blushing cheeks.
* Paint cheeks.
* Delete old photos.
* Take new photos.
* Resize photos.
* List doll.
