Izannah Walker Doll Making Kit
Have you always wanted to try your hand at making a reproduction Izannah Walker doll? If so, this kit is for you! My kit will enable you to make a faithful representation of an 18 inch antique Izannah Walker doll. This new kit is less challenging than my Izannah Walker Doll Making Class, which teaches you to make Izannah’s traditional pressed cloth heads. Instead, the kit comes with a molded composition head, cast in a mold made directly from Isane, an antique Izannah Walker doll in my collection. Also included in the kit are 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. KITS WILL SHIP FROM MY STUDIO APPROXIMATELY 4 WEEKS AFTER YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER.
