After seeing Becks Raggedy Ann and Andy from a kit I went to HL and, of course, they didn't have any. So, I decided to make some myself. I love to do stuffed animals and dolls clothes so I figured I could just combine all the ones I've done in the past and do them myself.
I printed pics off the Internet of different styles of Ann & Andy's and this is what I came up with. I can't show you the backs because I haven't finished the hair yet, but I couldn't wait to get pics. The clothes are all removable and the apron is separate from the dress. The socks and shoes are not removable. I used regular worsted weight yarn and crochet thread for the embroidery on the face.

I hope you enjoy!

You did an incredible job recreating Ann and Andy without a pattern! (You shouldn't have told us they were still hairless in the back, we wouldn't have known!) I like how the shoes turned out too. Are you going to make more clothes for them since these are removable? Great job! :yay :cheer
