Announcement   Joelle's Dolls creates handmade cloth dolls, one of a kind art dolls, baby dolls, dress up dolls, African American dolls, cat dolls, dog dolls, Asian dolls and rag dolls. Joelle's Dolls are for kids and adults, suitable for child friendly toys or doll collections. Each doll is unique and has its own personality. I use a variety of fabrics and materials, including yarn, lace, ribbon, buttons and beads. The dolls are 9 inches tall. The dolls are child friendly, but please use your best judgment as to whether they are safe for your daughter or son. Some have small parts that can come loose if chewed or played with roughly.
When I display my dolls at shows nearly everyone who stops for a look finds one that looks like someone they know. Maybe you will too!
I am proud to say that my dolls have been used by therapists to bring comfort and reassurance to trauma victims, and for play therapy with girls and boys.

These are my favorite pocket dolls and oft requested (especially the "frowny" face dolls) by friends and coworkers. The dolls are well made, sturdy and completely charming.

Updates

I've been busy these past few weeks building up my stock of little kitties. They are one of the most popular items in my shop and at art fairs!
I may try some new colors this year. I have fleece in different patterns that might make some interesting cats.

About

Joelle's Dolls: Handmade For Kids and Adults

I began designing my own handmade cloth dolls about 12 years ago, long before Etsy was created, to sell at arts & crafts shows near Syracuse, N.Y., in the United States.

I had loved playing with dolls as a child and my mom taught me how to sew at an early age. When I was 12, I made my first doll and kitty from a kit.

Fast-forward about 30 years. Seeking a creative outlet, I started experimenting, drawing doll patterns in a spare bedroom of the house where I live with my husband, three sons and three cats. I designed and sewed a handful of test dolls before the basic body structure was what I wanted.

Then the fun really kicked in: Imagining characters, hand drawing faces, picking out fabrics for clothing, sewing outfits, and making accessories, like jewelry, seashell bikinis or hats for the dolls.

Over the years, I created angels, brides and grooms, ballerinas and bikers, cowboys and farmers, mermaids, nuns, princesses, pirates and punk rockers, and witches.

You won't find a Raggedy Ann, Waldorf doll or any other common doll from a commercial pattern in my shop. Each doll I create is a one of a kind piece of art. But they are designed to be played with - either by children or adults who just can't help themselves.

Girls and boys have become so excited seeing my dolls that they dance with joy. But adult also buy them to use as unique and beautiful home decorations or for their doll collections.

My doll bodies are made from muslin. The dolls are stuffed with polyester fiberfill. I use cloth remnants or recycled fabrics to make the outfits. Most have hair made from yarn.

I make dolls that can be dressed and undressed. I also make dolls that have fancy outfits that are not removable.

For years, I sold my dolls exclusively at craft shows in New York. In 2007, when I heard about Etsy, I opened an Etsy shop.

I add new dolls to my Etsy shop as frequently as I can. But it does take time. Each doll is unique. Each is handmade. And I'm the only doll maker.

I hope you enjoy my Etsy shop. When you buy a doll from Joelle's Dolls, no one else in the world will own a doll exactly like it!
