PLEASE NOTE: The PDF book requires you to resize the pattern on a photocopier. Because of the variety of printers and settings, the PDF will print at different scales. To help with resizing the pattern, you will need to resize the squares so that they equal 1" for proper registration of pattern pieces.
I've traveled thousands of miles in search of knowledge about Izannah Walker dolls. I've taken hundreds of pictures of original Izannah Walker dolls and shared on the Izannah Walker Chronicles while learning. about these wonderful dolls. I designed a pattern and led several sessions of an online class based on the information in this book. The pattern consists of making a cloth doll over which a one of a kind clay head is sculpted. My pattern and the instructions are inspired by Izannah Walker dolls but use modern materials like paperclay.

I've bundled all the tutorials used in the Izannah Walker Workshop as well as the pattern into a PDF downloadable E-book called Making an Izannah Walker Inspired Doll. The book has over 107 pages of tutorials using photographs of the doll making process. I tried to present the information so that if someone were only looking at the pictures they could make the doll. Here's a peak at the Table of Contents:
And here's a peak at one of the sections
on sculpting with paperclay:
What skill levels are required to make this doll?
It is best if you have sewing and sculpting experience. You will be sculpting your own Izannah Walker head using paperclay and looking at inspiration pictures I have provided. I suggest that people make 3 dolls at the beginning and give themselves permission for their first few dolls to be learning dolls. Some people did take the now retired Izannah Workshop who had never made a doll and their efforts resulted in some lovely creations. But sculpting and sewing experience makes it much easier.
