This is a very very special gift, made by myself for the beautiful granddaughter of my late sister. We decided to call her “LOOBY” as my sister was named Looby by my father ever since she was born. This Rag Doll is dedicated to her, hoping that her memory will live on and, even though her granddaughter is too young to be able to remember her, with the help of her mum, Emma, I’m sure she’ll never forget her. This is for you Big Sister, and with all my love to you Ottilie. I’ve made a second one this weekend to have at home, so I can make her some nice clothes!! I’ll post the photos as I get them made!!
At this stage, I decided that the hair was far too thick and abundant for a 1 year old child, so I bought pure cotton and decided to change her hair!!. I stuck two pieces of polystyrene together with a hot glue gun to get the desired length and just wrapped the cotton thread around it.
And here she is, Christmas day, with Ottilie, then in the following September:
I found the pattern on this website: http://www.stitchcraftcreate.co.uk/my-rag-doll-pattern-project-download#.VpOVAFIYH2U.
