*****Welcome! I'm a Midwest-based fiber artist and I make handmade modern rag dolls and plushies. I'm passionate about making handmade toys - my modern cloth rag dolls are sewn with love. It's important to me to keep my family's traditions alive; we have a long history of making beautiful handmade objects to love and cherish. I create well-made pieces that combine heritage techniques with a fresh, modern outlook. All designs start off as my original artwork which is then turned into an original pattern and brought to life in my home studio.

My 7 year old niece loved this one--the removable dress and unicorn horn was an added surprise for her!

About

Handmade Plush Toys and Rag Dolls

I've dreamed of designing toys since I could hold a pencil. I named my business Riley Construction Toys after my family's carpentry and construction business because a lot of inspiration comes from my childhood. Some of my earliest memories are of “inventing" a new line of Strawberry Shortcake dolls, putting on craft shows in the laundry room.

A few years ago, an artist friend was putting together a plush show, and I put aside my upcycled accessories business to try my hand at creating an adorable little hedgehog for my son... and I was hooked.

Getting the chance to sketch silly ideas for toys and rag dolls, turning my creative visions into fanciful, fun reality, and watching childrens’ faces light up when they see my dolls is a dream come true!

Riley Construction is a story of a family of creative entrepreneurs. I come from a family of craftspeople and collectors, artists and carpenters. All designs start off as silly sketches which are then turned into original patterns and brought to life in my home studio.
I make my stuffed toys and dolls by hand because I want to preserve my family’s tradition of handcrafting. I create well-made pieces that combine heritage techniques with a fresh, modern outlook. My toys are tactile – they feel nice to little hands. Riley Construction designs are child-approved; my family’s own sons, daughters, nieces, and nephews are the first to test out new products.
