#272 C.W. Parker (circa 1930)

Cast aluminum carousel horse made in Leavenworth, Kansas. Cavalry saddle. Painted in numerous thin coats of oil wash. Recently professionally restored. This horse is an excellent buy when compared to the price of restored all-wood horses. The cast aluminum allows you to display this horse in areas with temperature and humidity ranges that would be harmful to a wooden horse. It will also stand up to more wear and tear if you wish to actually "ride" it.

#273 Izannah Walker Reproduction Doll Class by Mail

To the best of my knowledge, this is the only comprehensive tutorial on how to make an authentic Izannah Walker reproduction doll and her clothing. I based this class on Izannah Walker’s original patent and two pre-1873 dolls I own that were made by Izannah Walker.

 

This is a Master Level class that teaches you to make an exact reproduction of one of Izannah Walker’s iconic early pre-patent 18-½ inch dolls. Prior sewing, sculpting and painting experience is a pre-requisite.

 

What is included in the class:

 

  • 75 page Booklet full of step-by-step instructions with 166 detailed photographs
  • Patterns for doll body and one complete set of clothing (dress, two petticoats, chemise, drawers)
  • Body Construction Guide with 16 measurements
  • Detailed instructions for sculpting head featuring Sculpting Guide with 54 separate measurements taken from my antique Izannah Walker dolls
  • Mold-making instructions
  • Paint swatches and formulas to match colors from original Izannah Walker dolls
  • Painting instructions
  • Fabric swatches
  • Wool stuffing
  • Source list for all required materials
  • Optional instructions for those wanting to take a short-cut approach
  • Lifetime question and answer support at no additional charge
  • Additional bonus doll making information and student interaction on my class member-only Ning site


Why this class is ideal for serious doll-makers:

 

  • With the detailed instruction booklet, you don’t have to be connected to the internet or be limited to working in front of your television screen.
  • The open instruction book will lay flat on your work table
  • You can make notes right in your booklet as a permanent record
  • The instructions are infinitely reusable

#276 16-Inch Sock Monkey

Made from the famous, traditional Rockford Red Heel Socks, this iconic children’s toy was first made by mothers for their children during the Great Depression of the 1930’s.  I make each of my sock monkeys one at a time, using one pair of Rockford socks and polyester fiberfill stuffing.  My monkeys have vintage button eyes (buttons will vary), embroidered features and red yarn accents.  Created in remembrance of my very first sock monkey that was made for me when I was a baby by my Great-Grandmother Lovelady.

#277 Antique White

A 14-inch tall bear made of antique white mohair.  This bear has five joints, antique shoe button eyes, and embroidered features.  The mohair fabric was salvaged from an antique child’s coat that was far too damaged to be restored.  His paw pads are made from the coat’s lining. The shoe buttons came from a “button jar” and had been removed from their shoes by a previous owner at some time in the past.  The bear is stuffed with organic cotton stuffing. This bear was made using traditional construction methods and materials, but it is not an exact reproduction of a particular antique.  It is my own design, which has been inspired and influenced by the characteristics of several different antique bears in my personal collection. Available in a limited edition of 10.
