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
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
