Happy 200th Birthday Izannah Walker ~ Part 6 ~ The ice cream has been eaten, the presents have been opened, and we have come to the end of a perfect day…

It has been a very eventful day here, as the dolls and I have celebrated Izannah Walker’s 200th birthday. We’ve enjoyed each other’s company, tried a few new things (not all of which have worked perfectly 🙂 ), met new friends, and eaten ice cream!!!

… and what was my present on this wonderful day? Why the very best present of all! I got to spend the day with you and a dozen little dolls that bring me a deep sense of contentment, quite joy, and continuing wonder! Even better is the fact that tomorrow, and the next day, and the next… I get to get up and spend the day studying, restoring, conserving, and reproducing these tiny pieces of history. I am very thankful for all of the interesting people I have met thus far during my Izannah journey and the wonderful friends I have made. Being a doll maker is a continuing adventure… and I can’t think of a better gift than that! ❤

Charlotte’s Birthday Tale:

1.)   Liberty has some news to share with Savannah and Annabel.

2.)   Savannah seats herself on the settee while Annabel jumps up and down with excitement

3.)   Liberty announces that a close relative has lost her parents in a tragic situation and must come live with them as she no longer has a home. She tells Annabel that she’s younger than her and that Annabel will have the responsibility of making their new sister at home because now Annabel will be like Savannah and herself – a big sister.

4.)    Annabel ponders this over and over in her mind.  No longer the little sister?  I’ll be a big sister?

5.)    Annabel protests this new information and asks why do things have to change? Aren’t they happy together as 3 sisters?  Why a 4th.?

6.)    Savannah tries to explain this to her woolly headed little sister, but gives up and sighs!

7.)    Annabel runs over to her favourite chair and sobs her little heart out.  Why can’t she stay the youngest?  Who could Savannah and Liberty love that much.  Now she’d

have share her room and clothes… She was having none of it…

8.)    In walks a guest…

9.)    She curtsies and says she is the relative that had sent a message ahead to announce her arrival and hopes she hasn’t interrupted their afternoon tea.

10.)  Savannah and Annabel get up and curtsy.

11.)   Annabel’s curiosity gets the better of her and she shyly introduces herself to the newest member of the household.

12.)   Annabel couldn’t believe that this finely dressed, sweet little girl was going to live with them.  She was instantly smitten with a motherly affection and wished to make            newcomer feel at home.  How could she have doubted Liberty’s wisdom.

13.)  “What is your name”, Annabel inquired.

14.)   The shy little girl whispered, “Patience”

15.)   We are so glad you’re here and welcome to our home” said Annabel

16.)   Annabel immediately asked Patience to sit down and join them for tea.

17.)   Patience appeared to all the most modest and well bred little lady.  (Annabel couldn’t wait till she and Patience would be alone, to ask Patience if she could try on           her clothes.)

18.)   As soon as they sat at the tea table, they noticed Patience was tired from her long journey as she soon let down her guard and slumped sleepily in her seat.

19.)   To aid Patience and to help make her feel at home, Annabel immediately imitated her posture.

20.)   Liberty walked into the room with a lit Birthday cake.  “Make a wish, Patience.  It’s your birthday and we are so happy to have you become a part of our family”.

21.)   Patience looked at everyone and then stared at the cake.  What to wish for?  “A family to love me”,  she thought to herself.  ” Will I be able to stay?”

22.)   After they sang – as if everyone was reading her mind, Liberty turned to Patience and said,   “Welcome home, Patience.  You are part of us now.  We will always be              four sisters now.”

23.)  Patience felt like she was dreaming. Really, a forever home!

24.)   She held her head up high and whispered, I’m home.

25.)   Annabel looked fondly at Patience and thought about all the fun and mischief they would get into… it is going to be Great being a big sister!

26.)   The End.

Happy 200th. Birthday Izannah Walker!

This is Lila Rose who is named after the real Lila pictured below.  Lila was my cloth doll mentor and I purchased this IW from Lila.  She came with the hand made collar and pin, extra gifts from my sweet friend.

Lila Rose and I live in Mexico and she is a good traveler.

We send our greetings for a fantastic birthday remembrance of Izannah.

Tricia's Reproduction Izannah Walker doll
This is the sweet girl you made just about a year ago. As you can see, her name is Edith Ann (for my second great-grandmother who would have been of an age to have an Izannah doll). I’m so happy she’s come to live at my house in Southeastern Connecticut! The Izannah dolls have been a source of great fascination for me and I’m grateful for your efforts to continue the story! Happy Birthday, Izannah Walker!

Hi Paula,

I am sending you a picture of my IW doll you made special for me. I cross stitched her name & year. I can not tell you how much I love this doll you made for me.

Thank you for doing this Birthday  bash. Looking forward to viewing all the pictures.

Annabelle May is sending greetings to you Paula, and all Izannah’s wherever they may be!

She is dreaming of all the girls that have been made since the birth of Izannah Walker in 1817.  She is in a very contemplative mode today, she would like to give all Izannah’s and their mammon’s a big hug to celebrate the 200th anniversary of their creators birth.

Janets Reproduction Izannah walker doll Hannah Grace
Dear Paula, Thank you very much for my beautiful new blue clothes. They are easy to get into, so I can dress myself, and are very comfortable, but the best thing of all is the pocket — I’ve never had a pocket before. It is ever so clever for keeping one’s prized possessions close at hand.
Susan's Orchids
A spring bouquet of tiny native orchids from my garden for Izannah to enjoy with her celebrations. No doubt all the little Izannahs are anticipating a wonderful day. I look forward to enjoying it with them. Susan

Dear Izannah: Happy Happy Birthday. May it be a day filled with joy, laughter and rays of sunshine. I am having trouble choosing a dress to wear . Please save a crumb of your cake for me.  Oh yes, my sister Elizabeth (she is much older than me) wishes to send greetings also.

With much love, Mayla

Happy Birthday!

Dear Izannah, Congratulations on the 200th anniversary! We send you hugs and love from Russia!

200 year greetings,

from a far distant land,

to a talented lady

who made dolls by hand.

Thank you Izannah

for your iconic toy,

recreating it’s likeness,

has brought nothing but joy.

Zola and Hannah canning tomatoes. The girl’s don’t often use the electric stove, but they make an exception for canning!

Hannah and Zola have been out picking the last of the tomatoes from the garden.  They are planning to make Oven Dried Tomatoes and Canned Roasted Tomatoes. Zola is my doll’s newest friend, a c. 1880-1890 “Beecher-type” cloth doll with a stockinette covered facemask.  Hannah & Zola are happy to share their canning recipes with you:

img_7353Oven Dried Tomatoes

Wash and slice cherry or small paste tomatoes in half lengthwise.  Place tomatoes on parchment paper-covered cookie sheets, skin side down.  Sprinkle with sea salt.  Bake in your oven on the lowest temperature setting available (150 – 200 degrees), until the tomatoes reach the consistency of raisins.  If you start them in the late afternoon or early evening, then they will usually be done first thing in the morning, however the amount of time will vary with the size of the tomatoes and your oven temperature.  I would suggest trying this the first time during the day, when you can check their progress every few hours.

After the tomatoes have dried, remove them from the cookie sheet and pack them in clean sterilized canning jars. Heat olive oil to just below boiling.  Pour the hot oil over the tomatoes, leaving ½ inch headspace at the top of the jar.  Place a clean sterilized canning lid and ring on the jar, tighten, then turn the jar upside down.  The heat from the oil should cause the jar to seal.  After you hear the lid make a popping noise – which means that it has sealed – you can turn the jars right side up. Once opened, store in the refrigerator.

–         These dried tomatoes make a wonderful addition to sandwiches, pastas, and pizza

–         Use the olive oil the dried tomatoes are canned in for cooking and salad dressings

–         Put dried tomatoes and a bit of the olive oil in a blender and blend until smooth, serve with baguette slices for a fantastic appetizer

–         Blend dried tomatoes with mayonnaise for a great treat on a BLT

img_7358Canned Roasted Tomatoes

After picking tomatoes of any size and variety, wash, cut off stem and blossom ends, as well as any blemishes and roughly chop.  Place tomatoes in the largest enamelware pot that will fit in your oven.  Fill the pot to the top with tomatoes.  Place the uncovered pot in your oven and bake at the lowest temperature setting (150 – 200 degrees) until the tomatoes are reduced by half.  Depending on the size of your pot, this can take up to 24 hours.  Stir the tomatoes once or twice as they roast.  You may add sea salt to taste if you so desire.  Once the tomatoes have cooked down, but are still hot, ladle them into clean sterilized canning jars, cap with lids and rings and process in a water bath canner for 15 minutes.

Clearly I should have said the the additional posting times for today were approximate! The dolls are all just as excited as Cloe was to be running around in my studio and working in their doll house! So much exuberance is hard to contain and it is very difficult for little dolls to stay still for photographs. 🙂 So please come back and join us later today at approximately 1:00 pm, 4:00 pm, 7:00 pm, and 10:00 pm Eastern time. ❤

New! New! New! Introducing My Izannah Walker Doll Making Kits & Tiny Cut and Stitch Printed Cloth Dolls

My new Izannah Walker doll making kit.
My new Izannah Walker doll making kit.

I have two very fun new doll making items available just in time for the holidays!

IZANNAH WALKER DOLL MAKING KIT

Izannah’s original dolls were made with pressed cloth heads, which is a wonderful, but extremely difficult doll making skill to master. When I make the reproduction Izannah Walker dolls that I sell, I do make authentic pressed cloth heads. I also teach a master level class on how to make a historically accurate, pressed cloth head reproduction doll, but that class isn’t right for everyone.

If you’d like to start off a little slower and try something a bit easier, for your first reproduction Izannah, this kit is the way to go! The new kit is less challenging than my Izannah Walker Doll Making Class.  Included in the kit is a poured composition head, cast in a mold that I made directly from Isane, one of the antique Izannah Walker dolls that I own, which will enable you to make a faithful representation of an 18 inch antique Izannah Walker doll.  The kit also comes with patterns for the doll’s body, under garments and two dresses, plus a 31-page instruction booklet filled with detailed color photographs.

This kit is suggested for experienced seamstresses who are also well versed in painting with oils.  If you do not feel confident enough to paint the doll’s head yourself, you may commission me to paint it for you.

The original Isane, on the right and my reproduction of her on the left.
The original Isane, on the right and my reproduction of her on the left.

Isane, the doll whose head is reproduced in my kit, is a true doll maker’s doll. She has a very interesting past. Originally made by Izannah Walker, she was later repaired and repainted by the Martha Chase factory. Izannah Walker and Martha Chase, both famous and well-loved doll makers, also both lived in Rhode Island. In fact, at one time Martha Chase’s father was Izannah Walker’s physician and when she was a child young Martha owned a doll made by Izannah Walker. Later when Martha Chase grew up and became a doll maker, one of the things her small work force of women did, in addition to making new dolls, was to repair older ones.

The real Isane has very old Martha Chase arms and legs from one of her character dolls, rather than the chubbier ones found on her baby dolls. She also had traces of the highly recognizable Martha Chase pink flesh tone on her face and shoulders plus a Martha Chase body covering. One of the many things I love about Isane is this meld she represents of two awe inspiring American women doll makers!

I’m sure that Isane left the Martha Chase factory and went on to have many, many wonderful years as a beloved plaything, eventually winding up several years ago in the collection of a talented doll maker, who lives in Canada. After she left Canada, Isane was owned by at least two doll dealers, one of whom repainted her. The next stop in Isane’s long life was a sojourn at the home of Edith O’Neil, who is a wonderful artist, doll maker and collector. Edyth named the doll Patience.

In the fullness of time, Isane came to live here with me, where she acquired a new name, and after I did 60 + hours of restoration, regained her old face. I’m fairly sure that Isane’s relationship with Martha Chase has not been mentioned or even known by some of her previous owners. I know about it because of the physical evidence on the doll and my years of experience with both Izannah Walker and Martha Chase dolls. Isane is one of three dolls that I have personally examined and done restoration work on that was undeniably repaired by the Martha Chase factory.

Because Isane’s current arms and legs are not the ones she started life with, the enclosed pattern has limbs drafted from one of my other antique Izannah Walker dolls of the same size.

Click here to visit my website where you may read more about my new Izannah Kit and place an order for one.

Please be patient after placing your order, casting the composition heads is slow and time consuming endeavor, which I am fitting in between all of my many pre-existing orders.

TINY CUT OUT AND STITCH FABRIC DOLLS

These are my new cut and stitch printed fabric doll panels.
These are my new cut and stitch printed fabric doll panels.

This is the time of year when I long for simple, fun projects to make as gifts for friends and family members.  My preference is for small hand sewn items that I can stitch in front of a fire in the evenings, or while talking to my children.  Projects that I can pick up and work on for a few minutes when I have little bits of extra time.

Three different methods of sewing and stuffing my tiny cloth dolls.
Three different methods of sewing and stuffing my tiny cloth dolls.

When thinking about a project for this Christmas my mind immediately leapt to the great printed cloth dolls that were popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. I’ve always been very fond of all of the printed cut and sew dolls from that era.  My versions are a combination of printed cloth dolls and photos of some of the antique dolls in my collection.

Make two dolls with each panel by adding your own plain fabric on the back.
Make two dolls with each panel by adding your own plain fabric on the back.

Most of my printed dolls are 8-1/2 inches tall. Each doll panel that you buy includes two mirrored doll images, so that you can sew them together back to back, or use them separately with a plain fabric backing, or for applique work. The dolls are printed on high quality 100% cotton fabric and are completely washable. There is extra fabric surrounding each doll that will allow for a ¼ inch seam allowance. The dolls may be sewn with right sides together, turned and stuffed; machine or hand stitched from the front side, trimmed and stuffed, or appliqued on to other projects. They may also be cut out and used for journaling and other mixed media projects. Add bits of fabric, lace, crepe paper and Dresden trims to create doll clothing.

The dolls aslo look quite charming backed with printed fabrics.

Some project ideas include:
– Sewn them together back to back for Christmas Ornaments, so the “front” side is always on view.
– String several together with ribbon or twine to make a banner ,then hang up across a mirror, window, or mantle.
– Hang them individually from cupboard doors or chandeliers.
– Make a handful into a mobile.
– Stuff several with lavender and use them as drawer and closet sachets for your finest linens and clothing.
– Fill one with cedar shavings and place it among your doll and bear collection to repel moths.
– Make a bunch to give as special party favors for your doll club meetings and events.
– Make a special doll’s doll for your favorite play thing.
– Great for Baby Toys
– Add a squeaker inside to make a fun dog toy or fill with cat nip for your kitten to play with.
-Applique them onto quilt blocks, pincushions, curtains, aprons, pockets, baby bibs and clothing, tote bags, t-shirts and more.

The outline of the doll is clearly visible on the back side of the fabric, which  makes stitching them together easier!

I’ve tried to keep the costs very modest and I think you will find that it is the same or less than if you printed similar images on purchased printer fabric sheets using your ink jet printer. Plus you have the added advantage of being able to throw them in the washing machine!   🙂   My printed panels are $13 each, $ 30 for any three, $95 for any 10, or buy the entire collection for $100.

I love this antique pink fabric with this little fabric version of one of my antique Dennison paper dolls.  After sewing and stuffing her, dress her in crepe paper frills like the originals.
