Welcome Christine and her shop on Etsy called DOLL CLOSET. At DOLL CLOSET you will find all kinds of delightful, handmade outfits to fit 18" dolls, as the one show in the photo above. Christine said if someone doesn't have an 18" doll, and would like a special outfit created, all you have to do is send her the measurements. Let's hear how Christine got started in her "creativity" of designing handmade doll clothes.

What led you to start creating your art/craft?
I've been sewing as long as I can remember. Doll clothes were just a few of my many projects. I used them as birthday & Christmas gifts for my younger sisters and cousins. Now I enjoy making them to sell.

How did you decide what medium you wanted to work with?
Although I enjoy other crafty things, such as quilting, cross stitching, knitting, etc., sewing is just my favorite! It's so much fun deciding what to make next - which pattern I will use, which fabric would look best for that pattern.

What aspect of creating your art/craft do you find the most enjoyable?
I love making upcycled doll clothing. Although I don't have a lot of it in my shop right now, I plan to do more in the future. Something is just so satisfactory about taking a worn-out pair of jeans and transforming it into a cute miniature pair.

If you had to choose one other medium in which to display your “creativity”, what would that be, and why?
Knitting. I would love to knit some doll sweaters & such, but for the amount of time it takes, it's just not worth it.

What message, if any, do you want to convey with your art/craft?
That quality handmade doll clothing can be affordable!

What advice do you have for other artists/crafters?
To never give up. Always keep doing what you love, no matter what anyone else tells you.

THANKS, Christine, for taking the time to share your thoughts and work with us. I'm sure there are a lot of little girls out there that would be thrilled to get a "special outfit" for their favorite doll. Christmas is coming up rather quick, so be sure to pay a visit to DOLL CLOSET, where you just might find that special, hand-made outfit for her favorite doll. Christine also has another shop out on Etsy devoted to her photography, and another one offering digital designs such as banners, avatars, business cards, and more, which Christine and her friend Ashley run as a team.
