This is my first attempt , the poor naked thing. I think I will dress her in fabric clothes rather than knitted.
I am now making a second version who will be dressed in black as she is in mourning. I will post her up when she is ready along with this lady when she has some finery on.
Izannah Walker style cloth dolls
I have also been looking at some cloth dolls I did some time ago. They are painted to look like early cloth dolls, Izannah Walker inspired dolls. Izannah was a 19th centruy cloth doll maker in America. She patented her dolls I believe.
