My "Annie Loves" collection

Meet Annie. 
This is my newest collection of cloth dolls called "Annie Loves". 
Each doll in the collection is about 16 inches long. 
Each doll in this collection was made from a vintage pattern by Joan Russell called Annie. 
The dolls are all made from unbleached muslin and filled with fiberfil 
and will have different hair and eye color. 
Each one will come dressed differently. 
There will be extra clothes available to buy separately and 
all of the clothes will fit all of the dolls.
 I will also take special orders for clothes for these dolls.

These are the first two.
Annie Loves Pink Elephants
Annie Loves Halloween
They are both on Etsy

Cute baby dolls

When I do a craft show,
I love swapping with other craft vendors.

 I got these two baby dolls at my last show.

The maker is Caron Collectibles

I have two more babies she has made.
They are even smaller that these two!

I also have some of her other "creatures"
I will try to get good picture of them soon.

I love them all.

New clothes for Lola

A short while ago I won Lola on Facebook.
She is a bjd made by Berdine Creedy.
At first I was afraid to handle her.
I have never owned a doll of this quality
and I was afraid I would break her!!

But I decided to give it a try.

She looks cute in almost anything.
I like the one with the orange stripes the best.

These are on my etsy site.
Thanks for looking

Remember Raggedy Ann??

Does anyone remember Raggedy Ann?
Most children today do not know who she is!
I find that sad.

I used to make them all the time.
My grand kids were each given one
as soon as they were born.
I sold a lot of them at craft shows.
But when they stopped selling,
I stopped making them.
Until now.

I decided to make some for my big craft show in August.
If they don't sell,  then I will donate them to a children's group.
I figure I can't lose either way.

My Crochet Doll

Before Christmas I pre ordered this book.
I got it off Amazon,  here.

This is a beautiful book
with wonderful colored pictures.

Here is the first doll I made from the book.

There were many problems with the directions,
but I am pleased with how she came out.
