Raggedy Ann

 I have been asked to make a Raggedy Ann doll.  So I did.  I decided not to make the dress and pinafore and pants.  Instead I stopped at a thrift store and picked up some baby clothes for her.  The dress matches her hair perfectly. That was pure luck.  The little blue jeans are for a new born and they are a bit snug.  I like the tom boy look.  No pink or purple.

  2. Just love her!! I would love to make one for my granddaughter, but the clothes always scare me off! I always longed for one as a child. Love the setting you put her in.

    1. Go for it. The clothes were the easy part!

  3. What a clever idea! She could even have a change of clothes, her own travel suitcase or backpack that she rides in if you are checking out items at the thrift store.

    1. I had one when I was a child. When I started making these, I kept the first one I made. Nostalgia.

  7. Great work on the Raggedy Ann, and I love the Not Pink look. IIRC, the originals didn't wear lots of pink either(?).
