Hey there....well I'm going out on a limb here. I'm going to step away from quilting and attempt to make a doll. *YIKES*
My friends just got the call yesterday that they are parents!! After being on the list to adopt for 2 years there are picking up their baby girl today.
Anyway I already have the quilt going, but thought I would make a Raggedy Ann doll to go with it.
So here's the thing, I wanted a CUTE Raggedy to go with it....I know I know...there are TONS of patterns, but some of them are just down right SCARY looking. :) While I realize I will not be able to make one like THIS ( http://www.rjohnwright.com/raggedy.html ) I would like something along those lines, sweet and cute looking.
I realize it's a toy and won't stay this way....however I at lease want to present it all cute looking.
Now this brings me to a NEW question. The new baby is African-American / Hispanic. So do you think I should make a doll that is similar to her - or keep it a straight Raggedy? I really don't think my friends would care either way. And it makes no difference to me really...but thought I would put it out there.
I guess if I gifted a Raggedy book WITH the doll I would just make a regular Raggedy - because then I'm making the story book character....perhaps I will go that route.
Let me know if you know of a good pattern, etc. And again I can never say this enough....THANKS to everyone for their comments. You guys & gals are the BEST when it comes to bouncing ideas and getting advice!! :)
