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.
NiceThreads answered:
Thank you. It's fun to see them take on their own personality.
muralou asked:
is there a pattern for this doll and her clothes? tipytoes11@msn.com
NiceThreads answered:
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.
muralou asked:
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
NiceThreads answered:
:) Everyone comes out differently, they all have their own personality. I made a grandmother one wearing glasses and winking (me) for my g-daughter.
muralou asked:
oh she is sooo cute.. we should all have a G-mother like that in our rooms.
NiceThreads answered:
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.
