Most styles are one-of-a-kind. When a pictured item is sold, I can provide a nearly identical fabric, or a replacement according to a new photo. Basic items such as jeans, tee shirts, and underclothes are most always available.

Doll Accessories
Many accessories are commercial although I make some purses, slippers, and shoes. Look for the notations: commercial or handmade.  A fellow artist makes some of my doll jewelry and it will be labeled as Jewelry by Heart Strings.
