Working on Raggedy Anns

While the Ice Storm has been keeping us inside
I have been working on Raggedys.

I have 6 in progress.
I usually make that many at a time
because it takes a long time to make one,
and I can make better time if I use the
assembly line process.

The Raggedy Anns take a long time because
 they have so many parts.
The face is hand embroidered and the
body is sewn together.
The hair is hand sewn.
The bloomers are made then
the dress with all it's rick rack and
finally the apron.

They cost a bit more because of all the
trims that make them look so special,
add to the expense of the doll.

But when they are finished and all lined up
they just make you want to smile!


  1. Hi Donna, I always enjoy seeing what you make, I have not made dolls in years but yours make we want to.

  2. Oh Rhonda, when I get a whole bunch started...I think this is too much work; I'm not doing these many at one time again. But when I start to see them get finished...I get excited to start a new batch!

  3. Hi Donna,
    I'd love to sell some of these in my booth at Little River. Are they for sell? Can you email me at I would like to have at least 4.
    Message me. Thanks. Diana

  4. I sent you an email. Thanks for your comment.
