I was so tickled to find these vintage Raggedy Ann patterns at Vickie's Pattern Bee shop. Raggedy Ann was my very favorite doll. I received my Raggedy Ann as a present on my very first Christmas. She had a music box in her back that I wound up time and time again and I kept her on my pillow right next to my ear to lull me to sleep. I still have my precious doll. She has lived up to her name and is very raggedy now. We had a little cream and brown colored dog named Brandy who chewed apart one of Raggedy Ann's feet. She lost an arm as my sister, Stacey, and I were playing tug-o-war with her. Another leg was lost when I was holding Ann by the remaining foot and spinning around so that she was flying through the air. She is now also missing a eye and her wonderful music box. She is tucked away in my keepsake box, but will always be with me. I love you, Raggedy Ann!
