So I told a lie. I am going straight to jail, do not pass GO, do not collect two hundred.
I decided to make V her own Raggedy Ann doll and pass her off as my vintage love. I had picked up a vintage Raggedy Ann sewing pattern back in the spring with admirable intentions. So I got it out one night and there had to be about 80 separate pieces to the doll body pattern. (Okay, maybe there was some wine involved in my counting.) Hmmm. Then I typed "Raggedy Ann Doll" in the Ebay search box. Eight dollars sure was a lot less than all the money I was going to spend on the Tylenol I'd need to embroider her face and sew on those stripey stockings myself.
So folks, here we have a fake-handmade $8.00 Raggedy Ann with a questionable background.
I made her a tiny new outfit
And a doll quilt. (Embroidered quilt square purchased here)
I repackaged her, and enclosed a counterfeit note from Grandma.
This was Mommy's Raggedy Ann doll when she was a little girl. Please take good care of her now.
Straight from the shelves of Ebay into a little girl's heart. This Raggedy Ann has been loved and dragged around by the hair for days now (V's teaching her how to walk below).
And is V happy? You betcha. Please don't anyone ever read her this post.
