WIP: Rags To Riches

Every year I make Ruby a doll for her birthday. My little beauty is turning four in a few short weeks and doll #4 is well on her way. Ages ago I ordered Amy's mail order rag doll pattern with dreams of making a Raggedy Ann of my own. Well, I'm finally getting around to it, and I am beyond thrilled.

I made good progress on Miss Raggedy earlier this week, managing to tea dye my muslin (sooo much fun), make the body and the hair, legs, and almost finish off her little dress. So far I've loved making this project and I have high hopes for the finished result.

I haven't seen many of these guys during my travels on the Internets. Have any of you made this pattern? If so, speak up! I want to see!
