Check Out Our New Raggedy Annie and Andy Little Dolls Free 4 in 1 Combo E-Pattern


If you love making folk-art, primitive and raggedy cloth doll ornaments or little dolls then you're going to love our “Big Brother Andy and Kid Brother Randy and Big Sister Annie and Kid Sister Fannie”  2 in 1 combo free e-pattern.

"Big Brother Andy" and his "Kid Brother Randy" come from a large, loving family and as siblings often do get on each others nerves. Now don't get us wrong. "Big Brother Andy" and "Kid Brother Randy" love each other as brothers. It's just that sometimes they act like a bunch of boys do and get on each others nerves. This inevitably leads to wrestling, which leads to fighting and then punching. Playfully, of course!

When the gloves start coming out is when their "Big Sister Annie" and "Kid Sister Frannie" intervene. They calm them down and straighten out whatever the problem is so the boys can - well, "be boys."


"Kid Brother Randy" wants to be just like his "Big Brother Andy." He dresses just like him. Wears the same clothes. And, even gets the same haircut. Sometimes this bothers "Kid Brother Andy" but, most of the time, he just gives his younger brother a playful shove. He can shove and push his little brother around, but if someone else does that - well, they have "Big Brother Andy" to contend with then.

Boys will be boys and brothers will be brothers. They might fight a lot between themselves, but are thick as mud. They're steadfast and loyal to the core when it comes to their family even though that might be hard to tell at times from all the fighting. "Boys if you're going to wrestle - take it outside!"


"Big Sister Annie" and her "Kid Sister Fannie" often do get on each others nerves, too. Now don't get us wrong. "Big Sister Annie" and "Kid Sister Fannie" adore each other and truly love each other as sisters. It's just that sometimes "Big Sister Annie" wishes she were an only child.

My Free "Rag-doll Anthony and Rag-doll Annabell Lee" Primitive Dolls 2 in 1 Combo E-Pattern



"Rag-doll Anthony" and "Rag-doll Annabell Lee" are as close as brother and sister can get. "Rag-doll Anthony" is very protective of his baby sister "Rag-doll Annabell Lee." He's much wiser, or so he thinks, and knows the ropes, or so he thinks.

"Rag-doll Annabell Lee" lets her brother think that he's in charge but she really knows who rules the roost. Not her Mother, not her Father, and certainly not her older brother, "Rag-doll Anthony." For Rag-doll Annabell Lee it's amazing what a little intuition can do.

"Rag-doll Anthony" and "Rag-doll Annabell Lee" aren't your average rag-dolls. They're very special rag-dolls. You see, they were born with all their seams on the outside.

Their parents were very concerned about this when they were born as they didn't want their children to have a difficult childhood. They were envisioning that they would both be teased unmercifully. You know how children can be! However, they were pleasantly surprised. All the the rag-doll children love both "Rag-doll Anthony" and "Rag-doll Annabell Lee."

The Rag-doll children feel that, "they may be different but, once you get to know them, you realize they are just like you and me." So, their seams being on the outside doesn't bother anyone in the rag-doll children's school yard. They are treated like anyone else and that suits "Rag-doll Anthony" and "Rag-doll Annabell Lee" just fine.

 


"Rag-doll Anthony" is a 16" primitive cloth doll with an embroidered face, and running stitch embroidery on his body, head, legs, and arms. He's wearing a tattered and fringed shirt with collar and four decorative buttons tied with DMC embroidery floss.  His pants are tattered and fringed and gathered at the waist.  He has a fringed burgundy scarf tied around his neck and knotted in front.   He has burgundy ties around his legs and feet and has a mass of dark burgundy curly hair on the top of his head.


Annabell Lee is a primitive girl rag-doll with a cloth body, an embroidered face, and running stitch embroidery on her body, head, legs, and arms. She has dark raggedy red curly hair on the top of her head decorated with fringed bows. She is wearing a fringed dress with fringed bodice insert decorated with buttons tied with DMC embroidery bows, fringed bottom ruffle, and fringed balloon sleeves gathered at the elbows. She also has fringed bloomers gathered at the waist.  Strips of burgundy material are tied to her legs.

"Rag-doll Annabell Lee" thinks she looks quite pretty with her burgundy ties around her legs and feet and hairbows on the top of her head. Her mass of dark burgundy curly hair makes her brother "Rag-doll Anthony" look like he's bald.
