Hello, and welcome to my new Linda Walsh Originals Dolls - Handmade Dolls & Crafts website (formerly lindawalshoriginalsdolls.com) where we have handmade dolls and crafts for grown-up girls home decorating needs!
I have loved dolls, sewing, crafting, designing floral arrangements, and genealogy since I was a little girl. In fact, there was never a doll that I didn't love and want to add to my collection. I was always making or sewing something and always wanted to design my own dolls.
Finally, I was able to do so by creating Linda Walsh Originals where I sell my own doll pattern designs.
If you are a reader of my Linda’s Blog then you know that I’ve never seen a doll that I haven't loved. It doesn't matter to me what the category is or what the doll is made of. It doesn't matter if they are beautiful or down right ugly. I love them all and I want them all. Best of all, I love creating them and then decorating with them.
Given that I've been sewing and crafting for over 40 years I've made thousands of handmade dolls & crafts.
Some of the dolls are cloth, some are wood, some are a combination of wood and cloth, and some are porcelain or clay. Some have faces and some don't. Some stand alone and some or ornaments.
Some of my dolls & crafts are available for sale here on my Linda Walsh Originals Dolls - Handmade Dolls & Crafts website. Many of my dolls & crafts are only being offered here.
Some of my dolls are for sale in some of my others shops on the web; such as, my Linda Walsh Originals - Handmade Dolls Etsy shop and my Linda Walsh Originals Zibbet.com shop.
Each of the dolls has a page with "more information" on it. Their page contains a full description of the handmade doll and their outfit, and there is a full photo shot of the doll, a close-up photo of the doll's face, and a closeup photo of the outfit.
All of my Linda Walsh Originals handmade designs are available as print patterns and emailed e-patterns on my main Linda Walsh Originals website.
Plus, all are available as "instant download e-patterns" on my Linda Walsh Originals E-Patterns website.
If you want to try making my dolls yourself I have provided a link on their "more information" page to buy their instant e-pattern.
I just love decorating my home with the various dolls and crafts that I have made throughout the years changing my arrangements by season or by holiday. So, I thought you might like to decorate your home for the holidays and seasons as well.
All of the finished dolls and crafts that are for sale here have been made by me. You might notice that for most of the dolls or craft items shown there is only one of them. For a few I might have made two. The reason for this is that I like variety versus quantity. In other words, I get bored easily.
If you click through all my pages you’ll notice that I’ve made quite a few dolls or craft items of various types, shapes, and categories.
Some of the dolls that are for sale are my own Linda Walsh Originals designs. Other dolls or craft items that are for sale are based on another designers’ pattern.

To go along with our website we have a blog called “Dolls Blog by Linda Walsh Originals.” Our “Dolls Blog” is filled with stories of the dolls and crafts I've made, doll making "Dollie 101 Tips and Tricks", sewing and crafting trends, my sewing and crafting experiences, historical perspectives on sewing and crafting, and anything else that I might like to tell you. I promise it will be fun and you'll have a wonderful visit.
Plus, if you want to try your hand at making some of my original designs please visit my Linda Walsh Originals pattern website where you can purchase all of my designs as print patterns and emailed e-patterns.
