Primitive Izannah Doll

Today I am showing my new Primitive Izannah Doll that I made. This mold was made about two years ago, but for some reason it didn't turn out right, but I tried again and I didn't have any problems and the head was in good proportion. It is funny that it takes a long time sometimes to think of and make a special project. I was making this doll and I thought to myself, why not make a limited edition doll. I was able to buy a piece of antique fabric which was over 7 yards long to make the identical dresses for each doll. I figure I can make at least 10 to 12 dolls with that much to work with, so my doll would be limited to 10 or 12. If I make the patterns to fit this doll, which I call my model, it won't be as hard to make so many. I hope to make the special bare feet on these dolls, as well as the stitching around the top of the head and around the neck where the head would be sewn on. We will see how this turns out. Along with the primitive doll, I have been making a few other dolls too. Margeurite, who I named after the wife of the Scarlet Pimpernel, a good show I like, is very pretty and a large doll. She has ringlets on the sides of her head and around her neck. I must pick something super pretty for her to wear. Another doll I am making is Sylvester, a boy who I named after Sylvester Stallone, I like him too. I think Sylvester would like to have a black calico suit with a fine white shirt and bow tie. We will see about that too. All in all I have 6 large dolls to make, plus my limited edition ( 10 to 12 ) plus 4 tiny Iz dolls to finish, and this is not counting the sheet rock sanding and painting the kitchen that I have to do as well. I better eat alot of  turnip greens tonight for supper to strengthen me up, HaHa  I hope every one is well and busy with their special projects a





nd most importantly enjoying them.

  1. It will be fun to watch your progress on the limited edition dolls. I am wondering how close you can get to making them all look the same. My guess is that, like all of your dolls, they will all have their own sweet little personalities showing through. I do love Sylvester and Marguerite and look forward to seeing them all dressed up. I am sure you will enjoy working with all the new dolls, and I know you are looking forward to having a nice new kitchen. Happy summer and best wishes, Martha!

    1. thank you Mary. I didn't see these comments on gmail. I will work on the dolls a little more and am making a new foot that I never made before. Hope to make a truer version of the features of the Izannahs, like their unique feet. We have been gone to florida and I have got behind on things. Love your posts. the kitchen has been a super lot of work, We had to raise part of the floor level, cut back two walls and redo the sheet rock ceiling as well. Major remodel, but it will be nice. Looking forward to getting back home and into one house instead of two.

    1. Hi Jan, Thanks. I hope my little limited edition dolls will be good. Don't know if they will be totally alike, but they should have a strong resemblance to the original. Working on everything every day and hoping to get finished with the kitchen in a couple of months to move back home. living in two houses is not good. Can't devote the proper time to either place. loved you wall panel, so pretty. love the chicken.
