My grandmother used this same pattern to make all the grand kids Raggedy Anns and Andy dolls for Christmas back in 1975. Still have her pattern. I used it in the 90s to make my girls Raggedy Anns. I painted the faces on since I no longer had transfers and ripped fabric along the weft and washed it, then starched and ironed and cut it into pieces and hot glued for the hair. Rather than typical striped fabric for the stockings, I used red ticking and lightly tea stained the aprons. I'm getting ready to use the same pattern again for my grand daughters. How I hope one of my daughters will finally be bitten by the sewing bug and use the pattern for their own grand kids.

I think you did an amazing job. Absolutely amazing. The hair and the embroidery are especially great.

OMG - these take me back... My mom made all the kids in the family Raggedy Ann or Raggedy Andy dolls one year for Christmas. They looked just like these. You did a wonderful job!

So sweet. My great-grandma made Raggedy Ann and Andys--she would have loved these. I hope they are loved.
