I know there are some of us who are obsessed with our dollies and build them wee houses and clothes but these crafts don't fit into the parent boards, exactly.  There's been two "We Love Our Blythes" swaps and some clothing made for them posted here and there.  After goggling at the gorgeous bikini Bolyen made for her 60 cm, the topic of a separate board came up and I liked it.  Dangnabit, I liked it a lot.

I would love to be able to see what people are doing for their dollies all at one go instead of running across them accidentally.  Please?

I'm seconding this!!! I really love making things for my BJDs; everything from clothing and jewelry to furniture!! But I don't really know where to put it on the board. It doesn't really feel appropriate to put them in toys, because they aren't really toys to me. So, pleeeeeease?

I dream of this everyday, really I do, mostly to see what other people have made to give me inspiration and sources!  Come on, Leah, pretty pretty please?

I third!
I need major help with the whole Blythe-clothes-handsewing-thing. My attempts have been futile.
And I would love to see all of the great customizations in progress. I'm trying to decide about haircuts right now and could use some inspiration. I know you can go to the TIB forums, but it would be nice to see only craft/mod related posts.

I... uh... fourth this? The Toys boards right now seem to be mostly about making your own DIY dolls and stuffy plushie type toys, but customizing and making goodies for collectible dolls is a totally different subject and doesn't seem to fit in there very well. I've seen doll clothing threads pop up in the Toys, Sewing, Crocheting and even Quilting boards... it seems like it would be a good idea to have a single place for it all.

Besides, I think it would be a great place for people who work on different styles and sizes of dolls to compare notes and learn from each other on common ground. There are tons of doll forums out there, and a lot of them have very active crafting communities (I'm sure lots of those people are on Craftster already!), but most boards specialize in just one type of doll and there's not always a lot of cross-pollination.

I agree. I've been wanting to get into Blythe/BJD's, and it'd be nice to have one direct board to go to.

Its time for some new work.  Ever seen this site http://www.printmini.com/ Its mini printables for a doll house. I made the trunk on cardstock and it works great.
