I Have a New Article in the Winter 2014 Issue of Prims Magazine

The Winter 2014 issue of Prims magazine.

I received my advance copy of Prims Winter 2014 issue right before Christmas.  Today I finally found a few moments to sit down with a small friend and look over my article, while we shared a cup of tea and a slice of the wonderful nut roll that Mary sent me for Christmas.Prims Winter 2014 www.izannahwalker.com

You can read all about my portrait face New England rag dolls when this latest issue of Prims goes on sale January 1st.  The dolls featured in the article are ones that I made for my Izannah Walker doll making class.  They are variations on the class patterns, that allow class members to create additional types of cloth dolls.  All told I made five different variations of my patterns for my students.  Two of the dolls with painted cloth faces appear in the magazine.  The patterns are free for class members and instructions for making the dolls are posted on the class site.

Work in progress.  An early photo of one of the dolls shown in my Prims article.

  1. Hi Paula,
    Wonderful! I can’t wait to see your cloth dolls in print in Prims Magazine… Congratulations! Charlotte

  2. Hi Paula, The article sounds great. I’ll check my local Jo-Ann’s store this week. I always enjoy the Prims Magazine when it comes out. And since it comes out less often than other magazines I look forward to each issue.
    Happy New Year, Mary Goddard.
    Hi to you too Charlotte. Are you the Charlotte from the Izannah Retreat?

    • Hi Mary,

      I like Prims too and agree that the 3 times a year schedule makes it feel like a long break in between each one 🙂

      P.S. The nut roll is delicious. I still have a little bit tucked away, as I’ve been trying to make it last – although that’s been hard!

  3. […] Sophie and Mae, the two portrait face New England rag dolls that were in my article in the Winter 2014 issue of Prims are back home, in all their Sunday finery, just in time for Easter!  Sophie and Mae are two of the five flat face head variations that I made for my Izannah Walker doll making students.  Class members can use the five different heads with their Izannah class patterns.  The bonus patterns are available to class members through the class discussion site free of charge.  Follow this link to read more about my Prims article.
