A Raggedy Ann Doll For My Grandaughter

I just had to share these photos with you gals they are so cute!!! When my granddaughter comes over to visit she gets so excited with all the dolls I make. One of the first words she said was dolls, she calls everything dolls. While I would let her hold my raggedy ann dolls for a few minutes and I would have to watch that she would not mess up the new doll. So of course that was no fun at all for Ashlynn, but she was glad to be able to hold them for a few minutes.

So I decided to make her a raggedy ann doll of her own, only it took me awhile to find the time to make one for her. Because I had to design her different that the rest of my dolls she is made larger and not stuffed so firmly so Ashlynn can hug and squeeze her dolly. Oh and I hand sewed each strand of hair through the dolls head and knotted each piece so when Ashlynn grabs her dolly by the hair as babies do the hair wont come off in her hand.

Ashlynn's favorite color is red so I made the dolls dress in red and I wrapped the doll in red wrapping paper to surprise her.

This is photo #1 where she started to unwrap the doll
