Clockwise from top: Annie's by Tanja, Lorraine, Joyce, and me :-)
How many of us had a Raggedy Ann as a child? I did; she was the classic red-haired urchin with 'I love you' printed on her chest. Three of my Flickr friends became beguiled by Annie, and I wanted to share their delightful dolls with you.
Annie is a doll with a lot of heart, as you can see from the four above. Here is a little more information about them:
These beautiful Annies are by Tanja, who is Lenekie on Flickr. Her dolls are remarkable; take a look at her photostream. These Annies are from Oh Sew Dollin, who's patterns can be found on Etsy.
Blue-haired LiliAnnie was made by Joyce, aka Dutzie on Flickr, from another Oh Sew Dollin pattern. LiliAnnie is only six inches tall! Check out Joyce's photostream for more delightful dolls.
This dear little red-head, Esme by name, was made by Lorraine, aka Balancing Kiwi on Flickr. She used my Prairie Flowers cloth doll pattern (that you can find on the left sidebar of this blog), and turned her into the most adorable 13 inch Annie :-) Lorraine has many wonderful dolls on her Flickr photostream.
Other delightful designers of Annie's are Maureen Mills of Sweet Meadow Farms, and Cindy's Homespun, both on Etsy.
Dee Powell Annie's made many years ago
Annie can have many faces, but all of them speak to the heart.
