My little grandson turned a year old a couple of weeks ago and I wanted him to have a handmade gift from Grammy that he could keep forever. I guess kids don't play with Raggedy Ann and Andy all that much any more but I couldn't resist making him a classic Andy doll. I made a lot of these dolls back in the 70's so I dug out my vintage pattern and made Hayden a little buddy in the just the right size for him to carry around.
I was running a little short on time so, rather than hand embroider the face, I found this listing on Etsy for a digitized machine embroidered face. It turned out great and I got Andy finished in time for the birthday party!
