Ragamuffin - Anais

I've always been intrigued about making a Raggedy style doll, so I thought I'd give one a try this weekend.  Earlier this week, I received a pattern in the mail fromSweetMeadowsFarm.  It included instructions on how to make a cloth raggedy and was very detailed with steps on how to paint, sand and coffee stain your doll.  To be truthful, I found it all a little intimidating!  So, because I just love making dolls out of felt, I thought I'd put my own spin on this classic doll.!  Please meet Anais, my first little Ragamuffin...


She's definitely not an ordinary Raggedy, and I'm looking forward to making a few more!  Unfortunately, I've run out of the skin toned felt, so will have to wait till my order comes in!


Anais' features are hand embroidered and her hair is made from a gorgeous blue alpaca wool.  She wears a printed cotton dress with matching bow and a removable apron with a tiny key.  Her shoes are made from felt.















She is reserved, but I will be making more as soon as I can:)  Hope you like her!
