Discovering New Doll Blogs!

It’s challenging to find active doll bloggers, especially as more and more switch to platforms like Instagram. Because of this, my reading list has been somewhat blank lately.

However, thanks to Barb (My Little Doll Corner) and MonsterCrafts, I have a slew of fresh doll blogs to read! Both ladies recently shared lists of their favorite, active doll blogs and invited others to do the same–which is exactly what I’m about to do!

A few of these blogs are miniaturist blogs. They aren’t specifically about dolls but have some great crafting tutorials, especially for 1:12 scale furniture and room decor.

My Top Six Favorite Doll Blogs of 2020!

MonsterCrafts: MonsterCrafts is an adult collector of playline dolls, like Barbie and Monster High. She has a lot of tips showing how to improve your doll photography and create new backgrounds. She also posts Barbie Fashionista reviews, cute doll projects, and general doll-related talk.

My Little Doll Corner: I’ve been following Barb for a long time–since I first started blogging. She enjoys sewing historical fashions for her miniverse and writes reviews of her recent doll finds. She’s also an excellent writer of fantasy stories.

Requiem Art Designs: What’s the best fabric for miniature sewing? Gwendolyn at Requiem Art Designs knows! Her site is a one-stop-shop for doll sewing patterns and tutorials. She has patterns for Barbie (and Ken), Ever After High, BJDs, Pullips…the list goes on. Besides sewing advice, you’ll also find doll reviews and tips about doll customizing.

The dress pictured above (another project-in-progress) is one of the many patterns I’ve bought from Requiem Art Designs. It’s a Renaissance-style gown sewn from crushed velvet.

Jessica Chloe Miniatures: Jessica Chloe Miniatures is an online shop for doll furniture; however, they also post dollhouse decorating hacks and tutorials. I’m in the middle of remodeling Tink’s Treehouse, and their DIY Dollhouse Wallpaper tutorial was a lifesaver. No more wrinkled paper!

Mini Adventures Co: I found Mini Adventures Co. when scrolling through Instagram, looking for cozy yet stylish miniature decor ideas. Like Jessica Chloe Minis, they sell 1:12 scale, farmhouse-style furnishings and have tutorials with dollhouse decorating tips.

Barbie Gets Real: I’ve been following Tonya (aka Grandma Gets Real) on Instagram for quite some time. What I didn’t know until recently, though, is that she has a blog! On her site she shares dollstagram tips, shows how to find realistic-looking 1:6 scale miniatures for your dioramas, and tells her story of being a model turned Barbie collector.

There you have it, my friends. Six doll-related blogs that I enjoy reading and encourage you to check out.

Now it’s your turn!

What are some of your favorite doll blogs (besides Pixie Dust Dolls, of course😉)?

Feel free to give them a shout out in the comment section, or (even better) write your own Discovering Doll Blogs post.

Some of the sites I’ve listed have products for sale; however, I am not affiliated with these sites and receive nothing for recommending them.


  1. Thank you for the links to these blogs, it’s always good to find more dolly related reading stuff 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for the kind write-up! I have to start working on things again! Actually, I did a big clean up of my craft/photography table today.

      I’m glad you liked the post😀.
      I know what you mean—I‘m itching to start crafting again. Unfortunately, this next week is going to be difficult. Some frightening storms blew through and damaged our property and house😬. No one was hurt (thank goodness) but we’ve got some repairing to do. Still, I’m hoping to work on some simple projects in the evenings, so long as we don’t have any more setbacks🤞.

  3. Thank you so much for joining us! And thanks for including me as one of your favourite blogs. I didn’t know the last blogs you listed, I have just added them to my read list. I do know of Requiem Art, but haven’t visited her blog in a while, so I will definitely keep an eye on her latest posts. I love the fact that you added a photo more or less related to that particular blog.
    Hope more people join us in this idea. Have a great weekend.

      Glad you liked the post! I intended to publish it last Friday but got sidetracked with farm stuff🐣. Yes, It’s hard for me to not include at least one photo in my articles–and then that one leads to, like, ten🤣.

      Requiem Art’s blog is one of my favorites. Her Materials Monday posts are really helpful when learning to sew in miniature.

  4. Wow how cool. I didnt know you could do this. WOW! Well loking forward to more crafts!

  5. Thanks for sharing, I’ve followed along to quite a few in the three blog posts! Is it ok to recommend my own blog? DIY Barbie Blog is fairly new, a little over a year old, sharing projects and ideas for any age:

    I know of one other fun blogger, Sandi is rebuilding Barbie structures to create her own neighborhood and has a continuing story line:

    Thanks again, have a great week!

      It’s definitely okay to share your blog—we love Barbie crafts/projects around here😉. I’m also going to add the blogs in this list to our Doll Directory (link is in the sidebar) and can add yours there too if you’d like.
