There is an easy pattern for this cute girl ragdoll online by Missy Balance.  (I changed the directions a bit to make the boy doll.)

Susanab and I thought they would be fun to swap--Susan has already made a whole family of these dolls, and she can testify to how fun and addicting they are to make!  Because the pattern is very simple, it can be modified and embellished any way you can imagine, so we would all end up with dolls that are very different.

We are thinking of opening this swap for sign-ups on Friday (Aug. 3) and announcing partners on Thursday Aug. 9th.  With 3 weeks to craft one doll, the send-out date would be August 31.  Would you be interested?  If so, please comment below.

Leslie - Can you explain/describe your method of sewing the crotch and neck/head areas so the fabric doesn't buckle? I do clip the seams, and even if I "ease" the "v" or "L" of the line that I am sewing, I always seem to get major creases/buckles in the fabric.

Thanks.

Actually, I have those creases too Smmarrt!  On these dolls it seems most prominent in the neck.  The only thing I know that smoothes it out a bit is to stuff them very firmly.

Ladies--I don't want to disappoint you, but if we don't have at least a couple more people interested in this swap, it will have to be put on hold. I'll let you know Thursday night or Friday morning.  If this doesn't happen, maybe you will join us for another round of the monster ninni swap in about a  month.

UPDATE:  Due to insufficient interest, we are putting this idea on hold.   Thanks anyway, Sharalee, gotgrey and Smmarrt.

Of course I am interested! I was having a great holiday when you posted this!
And I see I missed out on a few more nice LHH-Susan-swaps!

Maybe a little later, I am sure more craftsters are on vacation. This really sounds like a fun swap!

Yes I was very interested too. Seams like it didn't stay up to long. But I think your right "windiek" that a lot of people are on vacation & did get to see it. A few more came on too after closing it.This sounds so much fun.

Did you have a great vacation? Glad to have you back! I miss all your cute comments.

Well aren't you the sweetest to ask me that and to miss my comments... Ha, I had a GREAT vacation! We were in Norway, I love that country for sure! Lots of trips with our rubber boat, some fishing, some sun bathing (yes, we did have sun), some geo-caching, lots of reading, seeing our Norwegian friends again, lots of barbecuing.... lots of fun! I only miss crafting and I so miss my sewing machine when I'm on holiday!

But I'm back! Ready to swap again! Missed all you nice craftsters and Craftster!  Cheesy
