    I have made a few of these is the past, and thought I would make a set to put in our quilt show.

    Very good job on Ann and Andy. Used to make them years ago, when my kids were little.
    They are the perfect compliment to quilts. :thumbup:

    I have patterns to make differents sizes of these two! Never have gotten around to making them, and now I don't have any little girls who would want them as I have no children of my own, and my nieces are out of the doll phase. :cry:

    Now all your cuties need is a quilt!! ;-)

    my grandmother made me and my sisters a set over 50 years ago and I still have them. What a great ideal to make a quilt to go with them.

    You did an awesome job on your Raggedy Ann and Andy. They are two of the best I have seen.

    How much do you charge for a set of your beautiful Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls? You do amazing work. My DGD just got the set that I used to have as a little girl. She so loves them!

    I love the raggedys also, when my dd was a baby that was the theme in her room. You did a great job and I think they would be a hit at the show.

    I don't make them to sell. I make them , and when the time is right I will find them a child who needs them. That is when I get paid, with that child's smile.

    There was a male quilter on here the other night talking about doing RA dolls for a friend. His name was Micheal

    They are so cute. My SIL impressed me to bits when she put together a Raggedy Ann doll in a day and it was so-o-o cute. Having a pair really finishes them off.

    You did a really swell job on them. Very nice.

    I never had RA dolls as a kid. Maybe someday. :wink:
