What are you most proud of? That the pattern has been in my stash since I made my first rag doll back when I was a teenager. I made them for my nieces and nephews and now I'm making them for their kids. I love this classic doll!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I have made this doll several times and this is the first time I used the safety eyes. In the past I have embroidered the eyes using a satin stitch. I think I like her better with the embroidered eyes. If I use safety eyes again, I'll not outline the eyes with a circle of stitching and I'll use extra fabric behind the eye for reinforcement.
