Daddy's Annie Doll

Here is the little Annie Doll that I made for my dad this weekend. He just loves her....he knows the little girl he is giving it to will love her too :) Dad really like the little apron I put on her. This sweet Annie was a lot of fun to make... although she did take me bit longer to make her than my Annie Swap doll... I think it was because of all the little extras I put on her. I have discovered that it takes a long time to attach the hair on these sweet little girls.. I love making and dressing the dolls...but I hate putting on the hair. I think it might be because.... you have bury the threads, that the hair is attaches to. I would love to get some instructions on how to make different hair styles... anyone have any suggestions or instructions they would share with me???
I think I am getting a bit better at painting on the faces.. this one turned out quite good ;) I am really pleased with her ;)
If you haven't signed up for Annie #2 swap don't forget sign ups end soon :)
I would also like to thank the designer for the pattern for this fun wonderful Annie:

she's adorable! I know how you feel about the hair...i had some regular weight yarn and thought i'd use that UGH BUT it turned out adorable...But sewing it on and then untwisting each piece took quite awhile. such a fun swap...thanks :)

She is sooo cute! Oh how I wish I could sign up but I'm working on two big surprise projects and a few other exchanges so I better sit back and watch the Annie's come in. I do want to join in the fun when my projects are complete. Thank you so much for thinking of me. I just love your blog. Jenna Louise

*claps* You are getting better and this one is a cutie! Thats so sweet of you to make one for your Dad to give to a little girl. I think every girl should have at least ONE Annie in their lifetime *winks* Look at the button bracelet and apron! Darling! You done good! I have a secret about hair- I'll share with you. Remind me k. I'm brain scattered at the moment- finishing up several projects!
Hugs & Raggedy Kisses!

Oh she is a darling! I can't wait to get the pattern and start on mine. I am going to make me one first before I do the one for the swap.

She is one cute dolly. I read about her over at the toy society. Such a sweet gesture.
