A note from Carolee...
Carolee Creations celebrated the 40th Anniversary of SewSweet Dolls in 2010!
We are known for our clear, easy to follow patterns and easy-to-sew cloth dolls. We originated the ‘template method’ of doll making, which insures a perfectly shaped doll every time. No guessing where the seams should be.
We also created the first four-piece doll head, giving a fully dimensional, easy to create head, and later added a chin dart - still easy, and the most realistic yet!
Our doll patterns run the gamut, from simple, 2 sided dolls, to sculpted faces, jointed bodies, and heads that turn. Trixi-Turn-Me, our first swivel head doll is over 30 years old. She doesn’t look it!
One of the fun things that often happens to me is - someone sees a dolls in my shop and ‘recognizes’ it. They will say "I know that doll!" "Someone made one for me when I was a child" or similar things. We are now on the 3rd generation of doll makers in some families. At least once a week I hear from an old customer, saying "I made dolls for my children and now I want to make them for my grandchildren" or great grand children! Another thing that touches me is when someone says " Your patterns saved my life", or "my sanity". It make me feel very good to know that they have helped and are loved and appreciated. I know that you will enjoy them, too.
Happy Doll Making! Carolee
