A Custom Painted Head for Happy

Remember the Izannah Walker Doll Making Kits that I posted for last week’s Third Thursday? This is one of the papier-mache heads that comes with the kit. The custom painting is one of the options you can choose. This particular head is on her way to her new home, where she will be getting her body and wardrobe. ❤

Welcome to my Third Thursday for March ~ Celebrating the Joy of Creating!

Paula Walton's Izannah Walker Doll Making Kit
The perfect spring project ~ create a sweet reproduction Izannah Walker doll on the days that April Showers keep you inside, out of the garden ❤  Gather up your favorite fabrics, buttons and trimmings! I have several kits available to ship now, so that you can begin painting and sewing right away. 

I’m doing something a tiny bit different for this month’s release of new dolls… This month I’m focusing on something for those of you who long to experience the pleasure of creating an Izannah Walker doll yourself ❤ I’ve made up a bunch of my Izannah Walker Doll Making Kits and a few extra papier-mache heads, in case anyone who already has a kit, or my Izannah Walker Dollmaking Class, needs an additional head. Normally I make the kits one at a time, after you place your order, so there is a wait of at least 5 weeks before they ship.

I have four full kits and three extra heads that can ship out on Monday. After those are gone any additional orders will be made to order and won’t ship out for at least 5 weeks. If you want me to paint your papier-mache head it will take at least 2 additional weeks, but may take more because I’m just swamped with orders at the moment, and I have a few surprises in the works too!

You may order and check out below. If it turns out that I’ve already sold the kits and heads I have on hand, I’ll email you and you can decide if you’d like to wait for me to make you a kit/head, or if  you’d prefer to cancel your order. If you want to place a kit/head on lay-away email me at paula@asweetremembrance.com.

 

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 5 - 9 WEEKS AFTER YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER.

$200.00

 

 

Izannah Walker Doll Making Kit with Painted Head

If you do not feel confident enough to paint the doll’s head yourself, you may commission me to paint it for you. This will require at least an additional two weeks. SHIPS FROM MY STUDIO APPROXIMATELY 7 - 12 WEEKS AFTER YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER.

$375.00

Additional Molded Composition Heads for use with Izannah Walker Doll Making Kit

Want to make another doll?  Buy a second head to use with the patterns and instructions in your kit. If you would also like me to paint the head, at least two more weeks will be required.

Only available to customers who have already purchased the full kit.

Specify:

I will paint the head myself $165.00
Approximate Shipping Time: 5 – 9 weeks
Have Paula paint the head $340.00
Approximate Shipping Time: At least 7 – 12 weeks

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day www.izannahwalker.com
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Eliza Jane and Hannah wish you a very happy St. Patrick’s Day!  This morning, to celebrate, Hannah baked Irish Soda Bread for breakfast, which made all her sisters quite happy indeed ❤

 

Hannah’s favorite recipe comes from The Society for the Preservation of Irish Soda Bread. She prefers the recipe for White Soda Bread.  She did stray from tradition and add raisins, which would actually make her bread “spotted dog”.  Hannah is quite fond of both raisins and dogs… ❤

February’s Last Hurrah! Both Little Sisters Are Sold… Thank you!


2 dolls available February 2019
This month’s offerings… Lizzybit on the left and Izzybelle on the right. Plus a long sleeved red dress sized to fit one of the girls larger 18-19 inch sisters.

For February’s (snow delayed) Third Thursday I have two one small little Izzy’s who are looking for loving homes ❤ The larger doll is made from my mold of the antique Lizzybit. She is 16 inches tall. Her smaller companion is 14.5 inch tall Izzybelle.

This month’s theme is little sisters, with a focus on paint surface details. Both of these dolls present an aged appearance, like that of original surviving antique Izannah Walker dolls. Some of you, who follow my Izannah Walker Journal, will be familar with the original, highly adventuresome Izzybelle. You’ll know that she has gone through some rough times and has been greatly loved during her long lifetime. For this particular younger sister of Izzybelle I have removed some of the original doll’s worst damage, leaving you this glimpse of how pretty and sweet the original doll must have been in her youth. ❤

The fabric for the doll’s dresses is a wonderful previously unused mid-19th century dot print. The color is reminiscent of sunny summer marigolds, ripe autumn pumpkins, and the golden hues of seashells on a windswept beach…

 

 

 

The dolls and extra dress are offered for sale on a first come basis. The way it works is simple. If you would like to purchase one of the dolls, or the dress, email me at paula@asweetremembrance.com. I’ll go by the time stamp when I receive your email to determine whose request is first.

The dolls are $1250.00 each, and the dress is $225.00, which includes free shipping to any address in the continental U.S. Dolls are mailed via USPS Priority Mail and are insured for their full value. International Orders  will be charged exact postage + a $10.00 handling fee for all international locations, except Canada, to help off-set the time it takes me to deal with customs forms – and in many cases the requirement that I actually take the package to the post office rather than scheduling it for pick-up.

Payment may be made via PayPal, credit card, personal check, or lay-away. Sales tax is 6.35% if I am shipping to a Connecticut address.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the snow on Thursday morning will be tolerable. If it is too bad I’ll need to chauffeur back and forth to nursery school. In that event, the dolls will still post at noon – but I won’t be able to access and answer emails right away. So it may be some time before you will know if you were the first person to request a particular doll…

A Red Letter Day ~Two Red Dresses Available

IMG_0653 (2)Red! ❤ Such a wonderful color and such a challenge for me to find when I am searching for antique fabrics! I’ve had a small quantity of floral striped red fabric stashed away for several years. I had been planning to make dresses from it for my antique Izannah Walker dolls… When I was contemplating Valentine’s Day and trying to think of something a tiny bit special to mark the day, I decided instead that I should use that fabric for a very tiny little Valentine’s Day Pop-Up Dress Shop!

Zanna and Isabeau offered to be today’s models. ❤  I had just enough fabric to make three dresses, these two matching long sleeved dresses, with a single growth tuck in each skirt, and a third make-do dress with short sleeves and a “false hem” of coordinating off-white and red fabric.

2 dresses available for sale www.izannahwalker.com
Zanna & Isabeau modeling Dresses 1 & 2. They are wishing you a very happy Valentine’s Day ❤

1. & 2. – ONE DRESS IS SOLD – ONE AVAILABLE  The two matching long sleeved dresses are finished and available for sale. They have 7 inch long skirts, so they are perfect if you’d like a shorter skirt for an 18 – 19 inch doll dressed as a younger child, or if you have slightly smaller doll made from my Anna mold. These dresses are too large for any of my Izzybelles. $225.00 each, which includes free shipping to any US address. There is no sales tax unless you are a Connecticut resident (6.35%). Please email me at paula@asweetremembrance.com if you wish to purchase dresses 1 and/or 2. Sold on a first come basis. Payment by Paypal, credit card, personal check, or lay-away.

3. – Dress three is not quite done… today has been a wild winter’s day. My best made plans were torn asunder by icy weather and a dead car battery, so I have been ferrying my near and dear ones back and forth to schools for most of the day. ❤ I’ll post the third dress just as soon as I put in the final stitches, so please check back!  Dress 3 will be the same as dresses 1 & 2, except it will have short gathered and banded sleeves, no growth tuck and a “false hem” with a different off-white and red print antique fabric used for the hem on the inside of the skirt.  It will also be priced at $225.00.
