this is a soft cloth bunny doll that i've had for a long time. he was purchased as an unclothed item to be crafted further with. i liked him just the way he was and chose to display him that way. when my daughter was about eight years old she decided that he needed a vest. she went into my studio, found a fabric that she liked and without a pattern proceeded to make his cute little vest. i was completely delighted~!!~ and he's been wearing it ever since . . .
this is a "tattoo" that i embroidered on my first and only handmade Raggedy Ann dolly. i should have made a Raggedy Andy dolly as well but just never got around to it.
i may eventually make another one but think that i might try something a bit more primitive when i do . . .
years after i created Ann i decided that she needed angel wings. i had a small piece of cutter quilt that was red with white polka dots and simply cut out two wing shapes and ran a copper wire through their edges so that i could make them pose-able. i think she's very proud of her accessory wings~!~
until i make an Andy doll, Ann has been content to befriend the vested bunny. at this time of year she highly suspects that he's the famous Cadbury Bunny . . .
they make a cute couple and i love seeing them displayed with some of my doll quilts. you didn't think i was the one sleeping under all of those little quilts, did you~!?!~
