About Izannah Walker Dolls


I want to introduce you to Emma, my Izannah Walker inspired doll (pattern curtesy of Dixie Redmond).

I was going to wait to show you her until I had more photos AND when I had photos of our little homeschool group's dolls. Alas, the four other creators have completed their dolls (and I must say that they are all looking lovely!), but *gasp* the dolls are sitting around in their birthday suits. Since we can only allot 45 minutes each week to working on them, it will take a jot longer. I only went ahead and finished my doll last fall because it's a bit hard to teach something if you haven't done it before.

However, I just found out this morning that you, too, can take Dixie Redmond's online Izannah Walker Workshop.  Dixie has just announced a new (and her LAST) course starting April 1st and running through July 1st.  I HIGHLY recommend it.  These are just beautiful dolls and, hey, if my 13-year-old daughter can create an amazingly beautiful doll, well, you can give it a try, too!  (I really can't wait to show you all of the dolls from our homeschool group.)


Anyhoo, if you're interested, please go to Dixie Redmond's site for more information--click HERE.  For all of you doll lovers out there, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Heaps of Hugs,
Cheryl

  4. Thank you so much, Joanne and Dixie! I'm glad that you like Emma. I had to laugh at your comment, Joanne--there are many times that I catch a glimpse of Emma and think, "I made her? She looks too pretty for that." But, yes, my grubby little hands (and, boy, did they get grubby working with Paperclay) created this sweet doll.

    Heaps of Hugs,

  7. Thanks, Kay! I must admit that I'm pleased with how well she turned out. And, just like my bears, I'm not quite sure how I manage to do it. LOL!
