FACED IZANNAH WALKER PATTERN (for 13" Doll)
Unlike my early folk style
Izannahs whose heads are sewn and stuffed stockinette (now discontinued),
I wanted a doll body whose head would provide a canvas for a portrait
style painting of her beloved face with corkscrew curls and downcast
eyes. For this I wanted flat weave cloth for the whole doll and
a separate shoulderplate. This doll is taken from an actual historical
example wearing just this same outfit. The period dress with cotton
battenburg trim and the printed apron are all part of the kitted
supplies. The pattern by itself has instructions for making an
apron from other fabric or a pre-printed apron can be ordered below.
This is the best pattern I have ever presented. The shape is wonderful
and has been long and hard in the making. I am working on (still)
a molded cloth face Izannah, but I wanted one that had the charm
of simple painting that could be achieved without complicated molds.
PATTERN $18 Add

Walker doll. $9.50 Add

LIMITED EDITION SET -
The wonderful set that used to be listed here has dramatically
changed in scope and quality since its first introduction. It has
taken some years to finalize all of the parts so that it feels
right to me and to find the time to get all of it in production.
The new set does not belong in this category since the doll has
changed to one with a molded head among the many changes and additions.
More info will be posted under Molded Dolls.
