General Information

 
bulletEvery single doll is carefully hand made and embellished by a talented Connie's Corner Associate. 
bulletDolls must be paid for in advance before construction begins.  You may pay by check, money order or credit card.

About YOUR Doll
Photos...

bulletChoose a high quality photograph in which the face consumes at least 1/4 (one quarter)  of the total image. A very small image in a family grouping may not be a good choice.  We will use smaller images if there are no other alternatives.  Do NOT send phone camera photos.
bulletWe make dolls with pictures of people of all ages. 
bulletIf you plan to scan your image, scan ONLY the face and head with a small edge around it.  Scan at 300 dpi (high resolution) and make sure that the face is clear and sharp.  If it is not very clear, bump up the scan quality (dpi) until it looks very good when printed out.
bulletYou may use black and white or color photographs. 
bulletWe will send instructions for you to Email your photos (saved as jpeg).
bulletIf you choose to send your picture to us for scanning, package carefully (photo mailer recommended) , insure, and send via reliable means.  Your original packaging will be used to return your photographs.  Include the price of adequate postage and insurance inside the photo  mailer.
bulletInstructions will be sent for you to U.S. Mail your photo.

About Your Doll...
Fabrics

bulletConnie's Corner Associates are trusted by their customers to choose the fabrics for their dolls.  Our doll makers prowl the fabric stores looking for the highest quality, most fluffy and soft fabrics available.   We prefer not to purchase huge bolts of fabric as we enjoy the unique quality which results in very limited editions and one of a kind originals from our own personal fabric stashes.
bulletYou MAY choose to send us your own fabrics with the following instructions:   Choose soft fluffy fabrics such as fleece or quilted material. Thin, or smooth cotton fabrics or synthetics do NOT work well!  Even if you choose flannel, it must be of the highest 'loft' or thickness. You will need 1 (one) yard of fabric.
bulletConnie's Corner Associates are also happy to work with a favorite baby bunting, snow suit,  fluffy blanket or quilt of your own.  If sending a garment, it must be large enough to accommodate the doll construction needs for  one full yard of fabric.  We recommend no less than a 12 month size bunting type garment.   Worry not,  if your personal garment is not suitable, we will send it back untouched. 

Pricing Your Doll...
Basic Doll Starts at $35.00 For EVERY photo doll ordered, ONE doll will be donated to a child of deployed military parents.

About Construction:  Your photo doll is hand cut and machine assembled.  The photo is transferred to fabric and sewn into the baby bunting hood.  Only the face, hair bangs are used in the doll.  Well, sometimes ears if they are cute and work within the photo and the doll head.  The faux fur and ribbons are hand stitched which takes many hours of expensive labor.  Finished dolls stand in their bunting at more or less 10" to 12".  Larger sizes cost more.  A lot more!   Customers may provide their own fabrics for the dolls (at no extra charge).  Fabrics used for dolls and bunting are the sewer's choice.  Blue for boys and pink for girls.

Photo Dolls are difficult and time consuming to make.  The process for the basic doll is refined to a fixed standard.  These dolls are hand made from start to finish.  There is a HUGE amount of hand sewing so the cost is very dear.  All ribbons, bows, faux fur and more are carefully hand sewn to the dolls.  The stitches are tight and the bows are double knotted, but we still recommend they be used as decorative.  A three year old with a pair of scissors and permanent marker can ruin a doll. Totally.
