This Raggedy make-do was adapted by a pattern by The Olde Country Cupboard.
It measures 15 1/2" high. The head measures approx. 8" x 8".
Raggedy was made with muslin which was tea dyed and stuffed with polyester fill.
Eyes are made from 100% wool fabric. Eyelids are tea dyed muslin.
Nose is burgundy & tan striped homespun. All facial features are hand stitched.
Raggedy is fastened with thick jute rope to a base made from a square piece of wood that has a spindle screwed into it. The base & spindle were painted with netmeg brown acrylic and then sprayed with clear protective finish.
Raggedy's hair is thick burgundy colored yarn, which I've sewn onto her head and tied a bow made of burgundy & tan small checked homespun.
The heart is made from a cut blue & white quilt and tea stained. It has a pocket made from tea dyed muslin with a rusty bell sewn in the center.
The pocket is stuffed with Sweet Annie, greenery & gold and red pip berry stems.
I've also attached with rusty safety pins a tag that reads 'Annie' and a skeleton key.
The heart is hot glued to the spindle.
