Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

We have a local country store on my road...a real, 100+ year old country store, complete with baked goods, glass bottle milk and fresh eggs from the neighbor for sale (ah and yankee candles and quilted purses). Hmmmm I says to myself...maybe I can convince them to sell something I make. Enter - Raggedies.

Here she is. She's naked hairless & shoe-less, but here she is. My daughter's already claimed her. That's OK, more can be made while I'm in the sewing mood! I created another pattern that I can't wait to try out too, but this one needs hair & clothes first.
She also didn't want me to add any white paint for the eyes or blush on the cheeks : (
Daughter requested black hair with a blue streak and bangs that cover one eye. Pretty sure the country store would pass on that anyway...

Oooh Goth Raggedy - I would so buy that! But somehow I don't think that a country store would go for it. Maybe the traditional red hair with orange and yellow streaks though? That would be super cute!

Thanks Nellie! I'm working on an e-pattern, but it takes longer than making the doll. My pattern will be a hand drawn pattern, exactly the way I do it for myself. I'll post it when it's ready : )

Oh no Patricia, what a tragic tale!!! I would have been furious! A lot of work goes into them : ( how sad!

I made a pair for myself back in the 60's and did Ann for my babysitter when she went to Skidmore College using the college colors!

My Ann & Andy came to a bad end...while in moving boxes in the attic while we redid the entire inside of our first home, Mice took parts of the faces, feet and used the filling for nests!
Never found the nest though and they looked to bedraggled to repair and I couldn't bring myself to make another pair.

She's darling! Good luck with selling! I like the idea of streaked-hair Raggedies. Gives them an edgy take on traditional...that's a good selling point too. Happy Sewing! :o)
