 Hi, ladies!
Today, I wanted to "share" a ~darling~
little raggedy that I made for our Grand-daughter!
Her name is ~Love Notes~ Annie
because I have written a few ~Love Notes~
on her tummy and back for our Grand-daughter
to "cherish" for ever & ever!

Raggedy "Hair" Tutorial from Old Road Primitives...



Raggedy “Hair” Tutorial from ORP! To get started we will start with Picture #1-Wrap a strand of yarn around your fingers several times to form loops as shown in picture #1. Picture #2-Starting hand stitching these loops at the top/center of the raggedy’s head. I hand stitch the loops right down the seam line of the head. Picture #3-When the hair on one side is finished, continue stitching the loops down the other side of the head. I usually try to not go any further down the head then the temples with the hair. Picture #4-This is the “wild” shot. The top is now finished. One more step to go. Picture #5-Start stitching the loops across the back of the raggedy’s head in a straight line. When you are all finished you can go back and clip the top of each loop or you can leave your raggedy’s hair “loopy”. I like to clip each loop but leave a few “loops” in the bang area. I especially like to leaves some “loops” on my girl raggedies. If you purchase ORP’s Raggedy Annie & Andie Pattern, I state the actually size of the strands of yarns that I use and how many strands that I use on these raggedies but this will give you a general idea of how I do Raggedy hair.


"Easy" Striped Raggedy Leg Tutorial from ORP...



“Easy” Striped Raggedy Leg Tutorial from Old Road Primitives. This is the "easy" way to paint "perfect" little stripes on your raggedy's leg. Picture #1-Paint stripes evenly on fabric. (I used scotch tape spaced evenly across the fabric.) Dry stripes. A blow dryer speeds up this process. Remove tape from fabric. Picture #2-Fold the fabric in half with stripes on the inside (RSI-Right Sides In). Please note…be sure to line the stripes up evenly. Picture #3-Trace the leg/shoe pattern piece to the fabric. Picture #4-Sew and trim leg/shoe piece. Picture #5-Turn the leg/shoe piece (RSO-Right Sides Out). Stuff the leg/shoe to the stuff line. Walla…now wasn’t that easy? Go ahead and paint the shoe. Let it dry. Stain, dry and sand the leg/shoe piece one last time. ORP's Raggedy Annie & Andie pattern can be purchased at the following link...http://www.oldroadprimitives.com/catalog.php?item=355
