Free Izannah Walker Doll Template Pattern

UPDATE - Since I offered this free pattern I had the chance to study many Izannah Walker dolls closely. I developed a pattern that is based on those studies which can be taken as a workshop. If you'd like to know more about this pattern which is very true to the original dolls, then go to
Hi, Folks - I gave this free pattern a while ago on my Northdixie Designs blog to use in making a small Izannah Walker doll, so I thought I would put it here to share as well. I used this pattern for the Izannah Walker doll I made pictured above. I added paper clay on top of the head and shoulders. Finished, it made up a doll was around 15" tall, depending on how you attach limbs, etc. I've become better at dressmaking since I made this doll. It's still one of my favorites.


  1. Thank you for so generously sharing this pattern. I think your dolls are beautiful.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing this pattern. I have been making primitive dolls for just over a year, but have been a quilter for many years. The anticipation for this finish doll greatly excites me! Your dolls are amazing!

  3. Hi Dixie , Thankyou once again for sharing your free cloth doll pattern . I,m presently using it to make a doll for my 3 year old granddaughter ...with a soft head and embroidered face . I began to make one with a paper clay head and shoulders for myself , but am terrified to begin painting it !!! LOL ! I love your dolls are truly gifted !
