HITTY SIZE (6.5") IZANNAH WALKER DOLL READY FOR RESERVATIONS

The doll receiving the most "must haves" at the 2018 UFDC Convention Sales Room in my booth was the Hitty size Izannah Walker I have been promising. This first one will come as pictured but there will be many more outfits to choose from later once she (and he) is in full production, plus most of Hitty's clothes will fit not to mention all of Hitty's accessories and furniture. Unfortunately, due to my work load, the delivery of orders of this doll will not be until late May. You may get on the list with a deposit ($75) now. Her price is $395 and she will come with a stand and the tiny cat.

SUSANNA - The latest 9" molded papier mache doll from the Louisa mold. She won the coveted chunk of fabric I had found and saved years ago for a special doll and finally agreed to let her have it. Susanna has many features of Louisa including a mohair wig worn with one of my hand-crocheted snoods, with her coatdress styled with a hand-crocheted collar. She carries a strawberry emery and a printed cat as a spot of color and wears leather high button shoes. Since she looks best standing, she will come with a wooden stand.
Susanna is a limited edition (24) will be able to ship in early May with a 20% ($120) deposit placed now. $595 Add to Cart

MY LATEST 9" MOLDED PAPIER MACHE DOLLS READY FOR RESERVATIONS

NEW EDITION OF LOUISA - The doll pictured on top left was the first of several dolls from this mold. She was named Louisa and far and away became the most requested edition of a doll in my career. I ended up doing 3 full editions of her after mounting the difficult search for the just-right fabrics each time. And yet the requests keep coming. So, after search number 4 (these searches take many hours and several days), I have located a new yet still perfect cinnamon brown plaid for another edition. Since the first Louisa's in 2009, the dolls now have posable arms and real cobbled shoes, but will still have the same mohair wigs and hand crocheted snoods and collars. The next edition (24) can be ordered ahead with a 20% deposit ($140) placed now and a 30 day wait.

LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD TINY DOLL (3.5" tall)


In this past year's R John Wright Convention Workshops I did a series of 3 dolls - Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel - for his theme of Fairy Tales. I borrowed my Tiny Dolls basic look and construction for these tiny dolls, adding posable arms and legs to the bodies. She is dressed in her red cape, 2-piece dress and apron with pantalets under where you can see her red shoes peeking out and carries her tiniest of baskets. Sorry, these are not available as kits. $165

You may reserve one with a $25 deposit and a 30 day wait to ship. Add to Cart

PS: Yes, I do plan additional characters. Hansel and Gretel coming soon, then Little Bo Peep and Mother Goose.

 

 

ANNABELLE

Announcing a 9" papier mache doll inspired by "A is for Annabelle" by Tasha Tudor. This is only a finished doll (sorry, no kit available) in a limited edition of 24. Doll parts from the same mold as Louisa, the UFDC Kindred Spirits, Elizabeth and the Christmas Girl. Most of my customers are very familiar with the wonderful works of Tasha Tudor and indeed I have been inspired by her images since I first saw them in 1980. My Annabelle version will be recognized from the cover of the alphabet book shown below. She will have a blonde mohair wig with a handcrocheted snood (hard to see in the picture), wearing a bonnet with lace ruffle trim, a pink gingham dress in the late 1800's style with full petticoat and pantalets and pink leather slippers. The doll will come with a wooden stand and a lace trimmed handkerchief with the letter A embroidered as her accessory.

Her price is $695 and only one left (3/31/19). Layaways are acceptable. Sorry, these are now sold. Watch for a tiny one (3.5" tall) later in 2019.


NEW PETITE SIZE IZANNAH WALKER SERIES ~ Announcing my 8" sweet sized Izannah series. This size originally made her appearance as an event doll for a UFDC Convention - the doll sitting in the center chair. Since she was sold out a similar version is now available. The boy on the left with his toy horse was also done as a Companion Doll for the UFDC Convention and I do have a few left that may be sold. When those are gone I will make a new edition boy similar. Another 8" Izannah on the right is dressed in a coatdress style with bonnet and her strawberry emery. More choices will be coming.

HITTY'S TINY PRINTED CAT

This cat is not new, but such a popular and cute tiny item that I am keeping it here. A perfect accessory for Hitty is this very tiny (1.5" tall) printed cloth cat taken from an antique unsewn cat by the Arnold Printworks Patented 1892. These printed cats and other animals and dolls were very popular for the home sewer who was to sew up and stuff these printed treasures for playthings long ago. GW has reworked the original artwork for this very easy kit or a delightful addition finished for your Hitty.

TINY DOLL NO. SEVENTEEN (2018)
A FASHION DOLL

The next tiny doll for this year is a Fashion Doll. This has been requested by many for a long time, but up until recently I have not wanted to do such a fancy doll in this tiny scale in production. You see, it is much harder to come up with methods that can be done efficiently within a price range than to do one or two. It is only due to the type of fabric and my method of paint overdye that makes the outfit possible. She has ringlets all around her papier mache head with a bonnet decorated in silk rosettes that coordinates with her bustled skirt all trimmed in lace. I am pleased to have worked out after many days, a way to make a skirt with an uneven hem (shorter in front, but longer in back held up in the classic shape by a bustle support worn under her skirts.

THE KITS: The dolls for this new kit have papier mache heads (all molded from my own originals) with easy to carve wooden limbs and cloth bodies. I think it is a moderately easy kit and the doll is a wonderful not-too-small scale. They will have the traditional blue bands securing limbs to bodies. Kits will include parts for the dolls (head and wood arm leg and foot blanks), body fabric, wool stuffing, necessary paints to make the doll including a new paint to make cheeks easier, plus fabric & notioins for her lace trimmed undies and a special cheek brush for the best cheeks. Patterns for two outfits (one is a simple period dress shown above right, the second is her fancy gown - not shown in picture) are included for you to use with your own choice of fabrics and trims.

NEW CHEEK PAINT AND BRUSH SET - The answer to your prayers for perfect cheeks

Use acrylics for all other painting, but use alkyd oils for at least cheeks for better, easier cheeks. If you will be using these paints soon after receipt, the best way to paint cheeks fairly effortlessly is with alkyd oils (fast drying oils). Oils allow you to easily feather out the edges using a dry brush and virtually no paint on your brush. Clean up with turpentine or turp substitute. You can then seal with varnish (recommended is Mod Podge Matte) and antique as usual. Included with the set of three colors in small paint pots (Titanium White, Cadmium Red Deep, and Burnt Sienna) are a concealer brush, a brush point Fantastik Paint Stick for blending or cheeks on tiny dolls, a foam Q-tip, and basic instructions.
