I'm not much of a doll person but I really like this one. I can see myself making something like this for a future grandchild! I love your color choice of yarn for the hair! Reminds me of the raggedy ann and andy costumes & wigs my mom made for us when I was little.

Thank you. It's fun to see them take on their own personality.

is there a pattern for this doll and her clothes? tipytoes11@msn.com

Not commercially. I did this myself but I'm sure you could find a similar pattern, it's the face gusset that gives it the shape I want.

i made a patten tonight but have yet to try it out. i am only just starting with rag doll's so will make mistakes along the way. lol lol

:) Everyone comes out differently, they all have their own personality. I made a grandmother one wearing glasses and winking (me) for my g-daughter.

I just added the g-mother doll so you could see it.

oh she is sooo cute.. we should all have a G-mother like that in our rooms.

My son thinks the g-mother doll is spooky :) Izzie wanted me to put a recorded button (of my voice) inside but even I thought THAT would be spooky.

i was looking at reborns online and some of them are way too spookie with the chest going up and down and making gurgling noises. i think your G-Mother doll is just right the way she is. i will be staining some white cotton with tea tonight to make a doll with hopefully tomorrow. i will let you know how it went. x
