My Handmade Cat Dolls
« on: June 15, 2017, 02:51:21 PM »
Hello everyone  :)

I thought I'd share with you some cat dolls I've been making recently. I'm working towards opening my own Etsy store for these cats, with the intention of taking custom orders to make dolls that look like people's pet cats as well as selling my own made up characters. I actually work in the stop motion industry as a puppet maker for feature films, but now want to start my own business selling these dolls.

I'd love to get your opinions on them and any ideas/suggestions/comments are of course appreciated :) The cats stand at about 22cm high. They're handmade from scratch which includes sculpting, sewing, soft sculpture work, costume making etc. Lots of work goes into each doll and they're made with a lot of love!

If you are interested in seeing more of my dolls and my making process then please do follow me on Instagram  :)

Thank you Carrehz! The black and white one is a doll version of my own cat called Albie :)

These look like children's book characters. Seriously, these designs are adorable and you should be proud. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for your future work.

Thank you Wystearya!<3 I learnt to make costumes at university, it's one of my favourite parts of making the cats. Bright Rabbit 1, if you're interested in a commission in the future then certainly! My shop won't be open for a few weeks yet as I'm actually about to move house but it will be opening soon.

Yes I am interested in a commission. I just got to figure out who I should choose from the musical Cats.

I can't wait till I see your work.

Oh wow, I'm in love! I adore cats and I'm just blown away by how well done these are. You have a great eye for detail.

I'm definitely bookmarking you for the future, as I'd love to keep up with your work, and to possibly commission you for my own kitties someday. :)

I would adore commissioning a Bast one for my altar, Gah I will totally have to keep an eye out for when you start taking commissions.

Been reading on your instagram a bit. 

So, they are soft foam?  How lovely!   I saw wire, do they pose at all?  (I did see that I think the heads turn..?)
EDIT - I saw some pics where it does look like you can pose them some!

I love the siamese girl the most right now.  And the silver tom with the long coat. ^.^
