Eco Dolly

Eco Dollies 
price varies by doll

Without internet this past week I have had a lot more time to play around with designs and ideas. My sister recently sent me a photo of a simple doll and asked if I could make something like it. I liked the bright colors of the doll and the free-form style, but she was a little ugly for my tastes.

For my design I wanted to make something that was a cross between a child’s drawing and a hand-made doll that a pioneer girl might have had. Mine are of course a lot more colorful than pioneer mother would have been able to manage.

Meet the first of my Eco Dollies. They are 100% upcycled and freecycled. Every part of them is made form clothing or fabric and scrapes that I already have, nothing was purchased to make them. They are even stuffed with scrapes of fabric from other projects. I knew there was a reason I was saving all those strips of fabric!

I name everything I make to make it easy for people to tell me which item it is they want to buy. Please welcome Regan, Cindy and Brenda. Their names are totally random, the first name that comes to my head is the one they get.

Payments are via PayPal, Credit Card




  1. I'm trying to figure out who I can give one of these to as a gift! I would have worn one of these out when I was little - dolls were my favorite.
