Suedewsberry's Rag Doll

Sue, Thanks for the Rag Doll. My niece was so overjoyed with it that she cried happy tears of joy! Everyone was astonished that I made the doll. The doll was a great hit! Thanks so much!

I used Lion brand Homespun yarn, I think it's called Sierra. I liked the goldilocks look the yarn gave the doll. My family has a lot of red-haired and golden-haired members and I bet the little girl will have something close to either of these colors eventually.

I tried what Suedewsbury suggested and wrapped the yarn around a hardbound book. I first took some press-n-tearaway stabilizer and cut two 4-inch strips, then took rubber bands to hold the first strip down, with sticky side up. After wrapping the yarn, I aded the second sticky strip with the sticky side down. Sewing was easier this way, preventing any misteps under the needle plate. Thanks for asking. Sue's designs are fantastically easy to use!

Sue, I sure owe you a great big hug for the delightful doll you digitized! I sure appreciate your hard work and your generous nature in sharing your talent with us Cuties here! I enjoy handmaking gifts for family and friends; it shows them that I put a lot of thought into what I give and it's from my hands and heart to theirs.
