i want to make a raggady ann doll but don't want yarn hair--i just want to use material and make it like a bob shape--
any tuts on the subject? or any ideas how?

the pattern comes with a wig shape that goes under the yarn maybe i'll use that?

Why not make "rag" hair.  You can tear thin strips of red fabric, cut them into short pieces, stitch the center of these pieces onto the dolls head, placing them very close together.  If you don't like the torn look, you can use a rotary cutter to make the strips. 

Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.

If the doll's head is flat, as in one piece for the front & one piece for the back, you can sew on felt, fleece or even flannel or cotton in the shape of a bob or whatever style you like. That's they way the hair is done on the Olive & Archie dolls from the Wee Wonderfuls pattern (http://www.weewonderfuls.com/make-a-long/). It makes for a cute doll without the fuss of yarn hair.
