I'm not going to make a bear, but if I were and I should come across a pattern that is confusing (mostly because they are poorly written) I would search out another pattern and work from the two of them drawing from each the parts that make sense and will work for the areas that are in question. A bear is a bear, find another simple bear pattern and work from that. Just use the cloth colors from the Panda is all.

104  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Re: Raggedy Ann/Andy Help on: March 17, 2012 06:36:20 AM
I am going to make the pair of them soon. As far as what Andy's head looks like from the back, keep in mind he is wearing a sailor's cap which doesn't cover much of the head except the very top.  Try this, put one of those typical wool caps that guys wear under their hoodies in the winter on a kids head and take note of how much of the head the cap covers.  To make it easy, I would just cover his whole head in hair and then make the cap and stick it on. In other words, the way you do Ann's hair, do his the same way.

Personally, I don't see that it makes a difference which way you go with the name. But if I was making something for a "close" friend, I would go with a nick name. Even one that I made up regardless if it was a birth name. Example, my girlfriend's son's name is Brandon. I call him "Brandy."  If I were to make something for him that involved personalization of a name, I would put "Brandy."

107  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Amazing! These are ALL CLOTH DOLLS! on: March 15, 2012 07:50:43 AM
This is not my work but the work of a woman I much admire. Here are just a few pictures of this woman's amazing work in cloth dolls. I am going to give this work a try myself. I thought you might be interested in seeing them. Check out the urls below to see more of her work. And do read her interesting bio.

108  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Jelly Bean painting on: March 14, 2012 07:52:05 AM
Thanks. I keep coming back here to check up. Great projects!

Just to let you know, I am currently waiting for a certain color (in jelly beans) to come in so I can complete this painting. I need to make sure I have enough of it on hand before I can continue working on it. The color is one they no longer produce now and so a sweep is being made to gather what there is of it left. I will wait just a few more weeks to see if I get enough of that color in ... if not ... then, I will pull out (I should say "chisel" out)  what there is of that color already on the board and rework those areas over in another color. Sorry for the delay!!

110  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Lots of knitted dolls on: March 03, 2012 08:08:49 PM
Sadly, no.  The last time she gave me one I was like 5 years old. However, I was thinking of asking her to make me one.  I think I am going to use my 2 year old as an excuse!  You know, she is getting elderly and I would really like one of her dolls before she gets too old to make them anymore. 

Oh please DO ask her ... I think she will be thrilled to do it, too. A lot of great old patterns are all too easily lost to time. Who knows, maybe somebody here can replicate it and keep it alive. That would be such an honor to your Aunt. Please do post if you get lucky enough to get her to make you another doll. I enjoy the old dolls very much; they have a certain charm to them.
