Izannah Walker Doll at Lucy's Doll House


Today I was able to take a mini-vacation and drive down to Lucy's Doll House in Camden to document the latest Izannah Walker doll in residence there.


It is because of Sue and the generosity of Lucy's Doll House that I've been able to document these dolls. Sue Singer was in the shop today while I documented the two dolls below and we had great conversation while I took pictures.

A note about the pictures - All photos/pictures presented in this post are copyright Dixie Redmond 2009 and all rights are reserved. An artist or student may copy for personal use for study but the images themselves may not be used in derivative works of art or shown/reprinted in any publication without permission.


The doll on the left is a cloth doll with an applied bonnet. All cloth! I was fascinated by it and took well over 200 pictures of both these dolls. Detailed pictures of the folk art doll on the left are on my Northdixie Designs blog. The Izannah doll is divine - so wonderful and petite. It's hard to tell the scale of things, but my thumbnail is about as large as the palm of this little 15 1/2 inch doll's hand. She's so wonderful!

Izannah Walker and Maggie Bessie Dolls...


It's funny how connections are made. I belong to the Yahoo group Vintage Cloth Dollmaking. One of the members mentioned a fabulous Maggie Bessie pattern that has been developed by Bradley Justice. So of course I wanted to buy the pattern, because Maggie Bessie dolls are very intriguing and beautiful. When I got the pattern, I sent a Maggie Bessie doll picture to Bradley, mentioning that I write a site dedicated to Izannah Walker. Bradley then sent me some pictures of an original Izannah Walker doll and got permission from the owner of the Izannah doll to post them here. How wonderful! Many thanks to Bradley and to the owner of the original Izannah Walker doll.

Bradley Justice's Maggie Bessie Inspired Pattern
"A North Carolina Doll"

Let's talk a bit about Bradley's Maggie Bessie inspired pattern. He was able to look at original Maggie Bessie dolls and study their construction prior to developing his pattern. The North Carolina Doll (his name for the pattern) makes up into a 14 inch doll. A perfect size for most dollmakers. If you are interested in purchasing the Maggie Bessie pattern, email shawstein@aol.com for more information. The pattern for the doll and traditional Maggie Bessie dress is $15. Bradley has an additional dress pattern and "haube cap" pattern to be purchased separately.

Here are the Izannah Walker Doll pictures Bradley is sharing here with the permission of the owner of the doll -



Another Original Izannah Walker Doll

I am hopeful to have some pictures of a new original Izannah doll sometime in the next couple of weeks, so check back. :-)
