caring for a newborn....made by me using a Julie Marcotte pattern of My Raggedy Dolls....You must check out her website if you love Annies like I do! Mine did not come out exactly like Julie's because we had a lil' nose mishap that was remedied....Tip: never use a disappearing pen on coffee dyed muslin for facial feature placement...oooops...forgot that I couldn't do that...(you'll have coffee marks all over her face if you try to erase the disappearing inkpen)...luckily I caught it before It made a mess. I just made the nose a bit bigger and wider...
Isn't She as sweet as can be? She's about 12 inches tall...a petite lil thing...cute as a button,,,with painted and penciled eyes & face shading. She has a stitched nose mouth, eyebrows & under eye "smile "wrinkles". She has black buckle shoes, painted strips on her legs and a sweet nurse's dress, cap and pantaloons too!...Her hair was carefully handstitched on as well...shhhh....the wee babe is sleeping! The pic does not even show how extra sweet she is as in person!
Happy Summer Solstice
