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.

What a cutie! Did you make the bear also? I'm glad to see you back into creating dolls and can't wait to see your own design. Where did you find the hemostat? I've heard of using that too but haven't found them except for online. Great job!

I LOVE those dolls. I have made a few but not the primitive ones, which I love the most. What kind of hemostat did you get? I have never heard of one but just did a google search and there are different ones. Where did you get yours?

Thanks for your comment on my dolls. I purchased the hemostat from Amazon.com. They are called 7" hemostat forceps and I only paid $5.99 which includes shipping.
