Here is what I sent Danice. She likes Raggedy Ann dolls. I never made one before. I didn't have a pattern  so I just used a shelf sitter doll pattern I had and made it into a raggedy.

This swap was lots of fun. Thanks Amy for putting on another great swap. Stop over to Danice's blog to see more pictures of the swap.
