I can only congratulate you to this beautiful doll. As NiceThreads noted, I too have made one over 30 years ago for my son and being back in Switzerland I made one a couple of years ago for a little neighbouring girl. The reaction and excitement now and then is still the same!
NiceThreads answered:
Thank you. When I had babies in the crib I would have a Raggedy Ann against the wall, held in place by the crib so that she was smiling down on the baby. The babies really responded to the bright colors & big smile, it seemed to be calming for them.
