Cara Carmina Handmade Dolls from Montreal

Today, I would like to introduce you to yet another Montreal designer: Cara Carmina. Norma Andreu, the artist and creator is originally from Mexico City; however she now lives in my hometown and creates the most delightful dolls and accessories. I’ve had the chance to meet Norma and she is so sweet — I find that this sweetness comes across in her work. Everything you see in the Cara Carmina Etsy shop is handmade; Norma likes to experiment a lot and draw with her sewing machine making the loveliest detailed art dolls and different textile collages. She is also an illustrator and creates lots of different paper dioramas which are then turned into prints or postcards. In this shop you can expect to find lots of cloth dolls- you can request a personalized one too, lots of jewelry and cute accessories, even birthday cards or note books. You might find Norma has a thing for Frida Kahlo – personally I just love those rosy cheeks!
