Another Christmas Raggedy Annie Completed

It has been a dreary weekend due to a front pushing into southern Florida from the Gulf of Mexico. We've haven't had any rain yet but it has been cloudy all day. This type of weather makes me spend more time in my sewing room working on new dolls. I designed this primitive Raggedy Ann doll myself - no pattern was used on this one. I guess after you have completed enough dolls using other designers patterns, you feel confident enough to create your own. This Christmas doll was just listed on Ebay. I have two other dolls listed that end today.

Getting into the Christmas Spirit - SOLD

Yes, I am getting into the spirit of the upcoming season. What is it about the change in seasons that makes you want to be more creative? Maybe it's because I finally get to breathe fresh air. Yes, today I have my windows open and am enjoying the gentle breeze blowing in from the Gulf of Mexico. I live in southwest coast of Florida where we have our air conditioning running from April through November.

Here is the other Christmas Raggedy Annie doll I mentioned yesterday. I completed her and her little snowman this morning. She is already listed on Ebay.

Back in the Doll Making Mood

I just finished another Raggedy Annie doll and listed her on Etsy. She is a primitive Christmas Raggedy Ann with her little Teddy Bear. I made her from a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern and she is cute as a button.

I also started another doll today which will be my own design. Check back tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have it completed and listed on either Ebay or Etsy.

I found the neatest little tool for dollmaking. I've read plenty of patterns that call for stuffing your dolls using a hemostat. Well I finally bought one and what a different it makes when you are trying to stuff those skinny little legs.
