|Mary Tudor, to show scale|
I've found a lot of doll makers there and my choice for this week is Deridolls. The artist is Portuguese and she makes tiny, sweet little cloth dolls, with the most charming of simple faces and the most amazing detailed, historically correct costumes fitted to their tiny bodies.
She's not limited to the sweet, either. The gristly subject of Judith and Holofernes is treated with the same charm and care.
|I love the crosses for eyes!|
She takes commissions and makes dolls from books and video games and films. She's opened my eyes to all kinds of historical portraits and always posts a reference when she shows a new doll. And she's always helpful and supportive of other doll makers.

Please go over and see her dolls. They're all charming, gorgeous little bundles of love and care and amazing skill.
