Today I finished my first Raggedy Ann doll.  I know it's nothing original, but I am so pleased with how she turned out!  I used the 1970's McCall's pattern, 15" tall.



And this is my Tropical Princess doll, made to commemorate my recent vacation to Florida.  The shells on her dress and headband are actual shells that I collected on the beach.  She is made from my own pattern, and her dress is a scrap from an old sarong.

Raggedy Ann is such a classic, and I think you did a great job! Maybe she'll be a family heirloom. Making a doll to showcase you treasures from your FL trip was a great idea! Much better than just sticking them in a dish on the coffee table.

Raggedy Ann!!! She looks EXACTLY like the Ann and Andy pair I had when I was little. Fantastic job on a timeless favorite!  Smiley

Ann is my favorite! How did you do her face details? Did you do it by hand? Machine? I want to make one, but I'm not sure how to do the face.
