Sarah Rag Doll
This little cutie with the sweet face is a folk style rag doll made in the traditional way and she is super quick and easy to make from discarded scraps of fabric. The Sarah Rag Doll design is based on the Raggedy Ann illustrations from the early 1900's when homemade rag dolls were necessarily designed to use very little fabric. The resulting lanky dolls are considered by many to have a sweet charm of their own and I aimed to capture this and reflect it in my own design.
The Sarah Rag Doll can be made safe for small children by painting or embroidering the facial features rather than using buttons. A unique and personalised rag doll will provide a cherished keepsake for many years to come and you may even find them just as popular with the adults!
Teddy Eddy Bear
This sweet little teddy bear is created from any medium weight cotton fabric and has moveable arms and legs made with ordinary button joints (you won't need to buy dedicated teddy joints). He's quick and simple to complete, and you can have fun matching or contrasting different fabrics for your own teddy's design, or perhaps make a memory bear from baby clothes or old school uniform.
A unique and personalised teddy or rag doll makes a lovely memento for special occasions such as a new baby, a wedding, birthdays or even a graduation and will provide a cherished keepsake for many years to come.
