Custom and personalized orders

I only make dolls shown for sale in my shop. I can adjust fabric or bead color but I do not do custom orders any longer.
Please ask about memorial dolls where I use fabric from clothing of a loved one.
I can also use your horse tail from your horse for the dolls hair.
