I always loved Raggedy Ann, not the ones sold in modern Day stores, but the one created by John Gruelle for his daughter which a few years later was introduced to the public in 1918. See the first picture. I just love her!!! I just had to make my own, and hopefully, try to make it look like his. Sewing by machine is not my forte, but I decided to tackle it anyway.
John Grulles’ Raggedy Ann
…and so I made it past the body. So far, so good!
…then I made the pantaloons, hmmm, wonder why no picture? Cuz it was so cute!! Sorry!!
Now the dress - front of dress. Another plateau reached.
…and the back of the dress
…and now with the dress on the doll. Oh gee, fits fine!!
And finally my finished doll. I am loving her already!
Just to explain why I don’t have pictures for everything, I do remember now that they were all in my old laptop which I dropped and now I can’t get the pictures out of it anymore. The file I got the above from was just a temp file that I thankfully didn’t erase, else I might not have any pictures to put here, at all.
