Hot off the drawing board is a new 15" raggedy set I have named Yankee Doodle Raggedies. They are listed in my Etsy shoppe as of this morning and also on Ebay. (Click either of these links to get you there) I am also going to list them here on my selling blog (click the link to view the selling blog) with a buy it now option. This pattern is a VERY simple one piece body/head construction. All of my patterns feature the trace & sew method which, in my opinion, gives you a more true shape after sewing. They have squared off toes/shoes....I really like this and have been doing it to dolls more and more lately. Patterns come in a poly bag, with complete detailed instructions and I also offer online assistance for the hard stuff...via my even get my secret time saving tips and tricks....pattern pieces, materials list, and color cover photo. The FINISHED SET which is pattern cover is also up for grabs on ebay. (Click the link to get you there to view more pics of this cute little patriotic pair.)

Paper pattern #129 is now available for 23" Carlie and her little 8" frog Freida.
Pattern is available now on Ebay or in my Etsy shoppe.

This fabric was too good to resist. I had to make a frog to go with this cutie. I didn't realize how weird frogs looked....LOL!

Finished Doll....Simply Courtney done in a pink ladybug and flower patchwork print. This doll is approximately 23" tall and is stained with a blend of coffee and tea for a perfectly prim skin tone.
Her dress bodice is a pink, green and cream stripe print. Her skirt shoulder straps criss cross in the back. There are 2 pink buttons attached where the shoulder straps meet the skirt top. I have added pink rick rack to the bottom edge of the skirt about an inch and a half from the bottom. She has painted socks with scalloped edge lace atop. Her shoes are painted black and gently sanded for a worn appearance.

She has a full head of auburn brown wool hair and I have attached a matching fabric bow just off center in her hairline. Her facial features are hand drawn, hand painted, shaded and sealed.
This doll is available in my Etsy shoppe for 22.95 plus shipping. Or you may email me here to request her.
New Ladybug Picnic Paper Pattern #128 is now available on Ebay, Etsy, or just email me here. Pattern is complete with detailed instructions for doll, the clothing and the ladybug.

Yes, those are needlesculpted toes....I think they go quite nicely with her chubby little fingers.

Don't be afraid of these eyes....they require simple painting skills and the rest is just like putting on make-up. LOL! This pattern sells for 11.00 on either site... with 1.00 shipping. If you order one here....I will ship it FREE within the US. and Canada.
