Please Meet: Izzy ...

Meet Izzy ...

She stands a full 18" tall

She wears her hair up in a bun.

Her dancing shoes. (She's hoping to attend a ball soon!)

A view of her hips/leg sockets before attaching her legs.

Here she is after felting, stuffing and sewing up.

Here she is next to Samantha, an American Girl doll ... this is to get a better idea of how big Izzy really is!

Well, I worked a lot longer on perfecting Izzy than I had expected I would. She went through many transformations. I tried several faces that looked more like the Izannah Walker dolls, but they just didn't suit her. So, I finally came up with this face, which I think is a little like the face on Bangwell Putt, my favorite doll in a book called The Journey of Bangwell Putt by Mariana.
What do you think of her? I hope you like her. The pattern will be available soon.
