QJ - Raggedy Ann


Machine Pieced
Hand Embroidered
Hair - Hand-tied

Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy
Pattern - McCall's #5713 (C) 1977

I made the Raggedy "Ann" for our daughter -

And the Raggedy "Andy" for our son -

As Christmas presents in 1977 -

Finding the time to sew -

After the kids went to sleep in the evening -

And at work during my lunch hours -

Couldn't have them see me working on their presents - ;))

The next year -

At the County Fair -

October 1978 -

Only one entry was allowed in the category -

So I chose "Ann" -

She won a blue ribbon - ;))

QJ - 1978

  1. OH, too cute and brought back memories. I made Raggedy Ann dolls for my girls (as well as many others) and when I made one for my first granddaughter for Christmas, my daughter cried! She said it brought back so many memories from her childhood. She was living in Missouri and was a bit homesick ;-)


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
