    i had Raggedy Ann Dolls when I was a kid and loved them. So did my daughter... As far as I can remember they had a tiny heart... in the cartoons it was like a candy heart... said I love you on it.

    Great job! I have made tons of those. I used to sell them years ago. I put a heart on both of them. ;)

    I've made Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls for more than thirty years and mine always have a heart. The pattern I've used is an ancient McCalls one and the dolls come in 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 inch sizes. I've made the 15 and 20 inch sizes most frequently. I often dress Andy in denim overalls and a plaid shirt. I think the pattern envelope shows him in a blue striped shirt. My pattern also shows the leg piece in upper and lower legs. I usually just put the striped fabric in the lower leg and use body fabric for the upper leg. I also stitch across the leg about in the middle to create a knee for bending. I also sew my yarn hair right on the doll's head using rows of loops starting around the face and working back row by row no more than a 1/2' apart. The rows eventually change from being semi-circular to being short horizontal rows, I just like my dolls to have a full head of hair. I've given dozens of these dolls away and now my 27 year old daughter is requesting them to give to all her friend's new little ones. I make other dolls too but these remain my favourites.

    I have made tons of them. Glad to see you are doing the faces by the old pattern. The new stuff is awful. I always embroidered the faces & heart on both. I love them. I still have mine that my grandmother made for me as a child. They are stiil my favorite & you did a nice job. :thumbup:

    Both of my dolls have hearts. I still have the ones my Godmother made me when I was born. A little worse for the wear, but still sitting in my sewing room.

    I use to sew the hair directly on the head but I made a frame out of cardboard where I could wind the loops around it & sew down the middle with the machine & them wind finished product around a piece of cardboard & just take the end & place on head & start sewing it on. I too used the old McCalls patterns that make all sizes & do the legs as Shelbie does. That 10 in is a doosey as being so small is hard to sew & stuff. I still have striped material for legs as you never when you made need to make one. Guess we all will always love them. I wish there was a machine embroidery pattern for them.
