My cousin had made a rag doll for her granddaughter, complete with a whole wardrobe of clothes. What a good idea, I thought. Then just as I heard about Christine's creation, I saw a pattern in the English Womens Weekly magazine. Eventually I got the enlargement done and cut out the pieces. And only then did I realise that I couldn't stitch this on the sewing machine and everything would need to be hand made.
Conclusions from this foray....
- Ruby will have only this one set of clothes; a dress, knickers and shoes. The pattern called for pajamas and slippers and I did have notions of a raincoat and boots (ha ha)
- Ruby will never have a sibling. I am sworn off making rag dolls!!!
