Christmas Raggetty Anns

In the lead up to this Christmas I have also been stitching another of the Bucilla Christmas ornament kits I have accumulated. This one is Raggetty Ann.

The kit comes with two each of Raggetty Ann, her bear, a heart and a gift box. I am decided not to make the gift box at all and to change the hearts to something else.

For the moment I focused on the Raggetty Anns and bears.

I found these a lot of fun to make.  I love seeing the figure emerge from the bits of felt.

I found this particular kit not as clear in its instructions as other Bucilla kits I have made - but I have made enough to get by!

The pink sequins on her skirt should be embroidery. I fixed this on the second one and the sequins are a Christmas treat!

The bear is a nice touch and quick to make. Because one Raggetty Ann is a gift and has to travel to Canberra, I attached the bear lightly to her hands. The one for our tree balances between her hands.

Here they are, just finished. One is now in Canberra and the other hanging on our Christmas Tree.

Happy Christmas Number Two!

I love Raggedy Ann, but I have managed not to buy this kit so far. I have a number of felt kits too, but all untouched, unfortunately.

They look wonderful on your tree!

I'm afraid I bought two of them! One down, one to go.

Lovely! I don't think I have actually seen anything remotely Raggedy Ann'ish for years!

My granddaughters recognised them, so the books must still be around!
