You have done a really great job. The end result must be well worth all the hassle you went through. Bet the little one just loves it.
Liz, she is beautiful and I am sure she will be greatly loved and cherished. Sarah.
Thanks to everyone that commented. I said that I wasn't done with rag doll making, but was going to put it on the back burner for a while... guess how I spent my morning? Yep, creating my own rag doll design. What I ended up with is more baby-ish... but on paper, is quite a bit bigger than Ol' Blue (what I named the above doll). The grandbaby is only a year old and I know she's not going to know a name for it, but I think I'm going to endorse "Obee" as a name. Aside from creating the doll body, this morning, I also worked on my own face design. While the bought rag doll face is cute and so forth, I really want to make the next one of my own design through and through. Hope everyone is having a great week. Its hot in southern Ontario, but at least the humidity is low. Liz
Great present for a little girl. Love your doll.
Liz, this is really unique and I am sure your step-grand daughter will love it.
IT IS SO CUTE
I'm not done with rag doll making, yet. I will probably start designing my own pattern. This doll ended up being about 16" tall. I may try to stretch it a bit and make my design 20". But, I'm going to put the rag doll making on the back burner for a little while... I've got a couple of other things I need to get to.
Whatever you went through it is grand for your granddaughter. Liked how you did the hair so she can't pull it out. The same with her face details so nothing is loose to go into a mouth.
poor you but just watch she will loveeeeeee it then you will feel better hugs carolyn
it was well worth it & I bet your granddaughter just adores it! What a good gramma you are!
you did a nice job
