What materials did you use? Twill cotton for body, embroidery floss, acrylic yarn for hair and calico for clothes. Notions were elastic, rick rack, thread and stitch on velcro. No buttons or snaps for little ones!

What are you most proud of? I have made Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy for all my children, most of my nieces and nephews and now my grandchildren. My gifts have often been chosen as the lovey of choice! My oldest son, wore out 2 Andy's and rejected the new 3rd one and still hung onto the face missing, one leg and one arm missing original 2.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do your best and pay attention to the details as that is what makes them so nice. Remember, this might by the heirloom that is passed down! Reinforce arm and leg connecting stitching.

I want to make a set of Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls in various sizes for my granddaughter. I like the embroidered face and details on your doll. Where can I find the pattern? (The Simplicity pattern dolls have whites around their eyes which I don't care for.)

Give me a day or so and I will find the pattern number for you. Maybe it is still around!! You just reminded me, I have another grandchild and need to make his Andy. Oh my!

McCall's 2531. I have sent several replies to you and am not sure I have done it correctly. I can copy the embroidery info and send to you via mail or personal email, although I do not know how to do it through Craftsy. You are my first comment!! At this moment, I cannot find my body pattern or the original pattern envelope with the additional sizes. I will be happy to copy them for you. Right now this is scary!!! Sewing area needs cleaned up because of Christmas. I have g-kids all this next week too. Know I will get on this soon as I need to make one too!

Hi! I've been having trouble signing into this site. Thank you for continuing to look for the pattern. I've been searching to purchase one but haven't found one yet. I would really appreciate your help. My email is: Have a wonderful time with your grandchildren!

My week with the grandkids went smoothly and was a great time for all of us, I think. Came home with a tummy virus though! Kids share everything with Grandma!! This weekend looks promising for some cleanup in the sewing area. Will keep you posted.
