Child's Play

On December of 2010, while thinking about what to get my daughters for Christmas, I decided to make them something they could not only play with but also cherish forever; a doll that looked like them, but most importantly, made by mommy's own hands with love and care in each stitch-literally. I didn't own a sewing machine at the time and made each doll by hand. I turned to the internet for inspiration and got to work. That Christmas morning was special. My daughter's loved their dollies, and the Gina Dolls were born.

The dolls were a hit everywhere they went so I decided to put them on Etsy. I bought a sewing machine, and I opened my shop in January.

My favorite part of these dolls is the eyes. They say that they eyes are a window to the soul, and I think the unique eyes of these dolls add to their personality. They are as different as every little girl that they are purchased for. I love to make the dolls I dream up, but I get so excited about the customized ones because I don't always know what she will look like until the end. The possibilities are endless.
