Ever since I was young, I've had a personal bias towards dolls constructed from fabric. Was it from the special charm from feeling the material? Even after starting sewing I had a keen interest in dolls yet there weren't many that held my interest to warrant a purchase.

I would wander my local markets and online keeping my eyes peeled for my daughter. But I always came back empty handed. A doll that gave comfort and warmth to the heart, a doll that got you chatting, a doll that might be lacking yet was still attractive.

After creating the dolls we created a story for it. We decided to put the story into a children's story book. I always had a hobby of reproducing furniture. Naturally, the full set for the dolls came into plan.

Since then I've written five sewing pattern books (C&T Publishing), worked on iThinkSew patterns, co-authored several books, and participated in magazines. With such a tight schedule, doll designs were on the sideline of my thoughts for the longest time.

Finally, I am ready to share my doll designs and books with the world!
