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.
