Spring Board Winner!

Through the magic of random number pickery, Rachel of Nest Full of Eggs is the new owner of the Gramma Wolfie Doll! Rachel, contact me and we'll get your prize in the mail.

And to answer some of your questions, yes, this will be a pattern, and also there will be a Little Red doll pattern. Soon. Ish. Soon-like. Well, as soon as I can.

 My Heather doll, a small Raggedy Ann made by my Mama Graham,
and my big Raggedy Ann.

Thanks everyone for sharing your favorite dolls and doll memories. I had some great laughs from them, especially the stories featuring evil older brothers. I started feeling really nostalgic about my two dolls and wondering what ever happened to them, and then it dawned on me they are both in my cedar chest. Duh! I went and dug them out and was really embarrassed at the sad shape and the dirtiness. At this point, I can't even wash them because I'm afraid they'll fall apart. The feet on my Raggedy Ann are split like that because I always walked her around by holding her in front of me and kicking her feet in unison with mine. I will have to make her some tight fitting booties or something to keep her stuffing from coming out.

See, my Raggedy Ann also had a heart that said "I love you" on her chest. My next-to-me sister and I both got one at the same time, and when she ripped the face on hers I remember she kept trying to pass it off as mine. Or was that our Snoopy dolls? If I have trust issues, I blame you, Libby. :-)

  4. Such a cute photo to announce the winner!

    Ah, these Raggedy Ann dolls make me feel so loved and nostalgic. Thanks fo sharing.

  5. Don't feel bad, Larissa! I got over it really fast, especially since I only have a little boy whose father would probably be less than thrilled if I gave him a doll to play with--even a doll with a scary wolf on one side ;-) I guess I can forgive you if you promise to keep on posting awesome crafts that always inspire me to get sewing!
