    Welcome to my workshop!

    Hi there! Welcome to my workshop! My name is Misty, I'm from the United States and have been living in Wisconsin for the last 10 years. I recently left my crazy-busy life as a Registered Nurse and am doing what I love.

    My passion is working with fabric and my favorite item to make with fabric is dolls! I have sold my handcrafted soft dolls for over a year on my website www.netchiedolls.com. My facebook page is dedicated to my 15” soft dolls: facebook.com/netchiedolls.

    Human beings are the only species that are known to make an image of themselves. Dolls of many forms and materials have been around as long as humans have been! Many are hundreds of years old and still well-preserved. Dolls actually increase in value with time and are one of the few things that will not be replaced by technology. All these are reasons that make being a doll artist so special.

    I am now making the move to Etsy to include my soft dolls and other unique items made by me. Please check back often and check out my recently listed handcrafted items.

    Enjoy browsing and please feel free to send me a message with any special requests. Questions and feedback are always appreciated!

    Frequently asked questions
    Care instructions

    Touch up small stain areas with soap and water and scrub with a toothbrush.

    When the doll is ready for a complete bath, fill a basin with cool water and a mild soap. Wrap any long loose hair styles in a nylon stocking to prevent matting and felting. Immerse the doll and gently suds the soil away, scrubbing extra dirty areas with a toothbrush.

    Be careful not to rub the hair. Rinse the doll in cool water, and BLOT excess moisture with a towel - do not wring. Re-shape the doll as necessary and dry flat on a towel, face up, away from heat.

    How long does it take to make a doll?

    Each doll takes me 5-6 hours to make, not including the outfit. The most time-consuming part is the hair! The wig cap is knitted on a round loom, sewn firmly to the head, and then "hair" is latched in a strand at a time. This process takes about 2 1/2 hours.
