A spotlight on a young Etsy shop owner and blogger!

Today I wanted to bring you a spotlight on a young Etsy shop owner who is enthusiastic about her work and dolls and earning her own money selling items she makes for her dolls. This very entrepreneurial young lady is  Monica of Monica's Doll Designs.
Monica got started by watching  American Girl doll videos on Youtube and in most of the Youtube channels there was a link to Etsy! So, she decided to open her own shop.

Using her  3 American Girl dolls just like you # 24 , # 42, #49 she models her work for her photos.

  Monica tells me that  she  likes making American girl doll hats and scarfs ( made out of yarn ) as well as sewing!

Monica currently only ships within the USA and her creations are offered at $7-$12.

  Monica says "It probably takes me 2 hours to make an American Girl doll hat, but for a scarf it takes me about 1 hour and a half. For sewing it depends on what I'm making, If I'm making a dress for an American girl doll, it would probably take me about 1 to 2 days to make the dress."

In addition to having her own Etsy shop Monica also has a blog! To visit her blog click here 

I think it is wonderful to see up and coming young lady designers on Etsy and I am so happy to share her work with you.
