Janet Mankowski
I have been sewing for almost 50 years, so I have a huge stash of unique fabrics that I use for creating doll clothes. I started making doll clothes to match my granddaughters' dresses, and it turned into a great hobby/business.
I recently started making aprons for everyone...many are embroidered with clever saying and are the perfect addition to Merchantile gift baskets!
Available by special order are pillows and other memory items made from your loved ones' clothing. I made pillows and doll dresses from my dad's shirts after he passed and the family loved them!
