Please visit my Izannah Walker Journal at www.izannahwalker.com if you love Izannah Walker dolls, and would like to get a behind-the-scenes look at the day-to-day process that I am going through while drafting patterns and writing doll making instructions for my Izannah Walker Style Cloth Doll Making Class.
Other information you will find there includes an ongoing list of sources for fabric and other doll making materials, some history about Izannah Walker dolls and a list of reference materials for researching Izannah’s dolls. I have also added tips on minor restoration and conservation and some fun Izannah project ideas.
