Big Baby now has Clothes

My latest dolly rescue, Big Baby now has her clothes on,that's always a good thing,don't you agree?
I put a long sleeve Onesie under this beautiful little dress I purchased at GW because of the hand that's missing four fingers.

Look at the details....just lovely and so sweet.

And this is the Raggedy Ann I rescued the day before Big Baby. She was very dirty and had a hole in one foot. I put her through the washer, although she still has some stains that wouldn't wash out, she really came so much cleaner than I thought she would! She smells nice and clean now as well. She is one of the old dress me type raggedies. She once had black shoes with laces in them to teach little girls to dress themselves. Notice the big buttons?

The little bonnet on the right I crocheted myself for my little granddaughter due to be born in Sept. I am not real happy with how it turned out ,so I am getting some much softer baby yarn today and giving it another try. This was my first attempt at crocheting a baby bonnet! I will show more of this bonnet and the next one in a later post. I pray you are all having a blessed weekend thus far my dear friends.

Big baby is adorable now! I love the lacy bonnet you put on her and this sweet dress. You even put walking shoes on her! How sweet! Love your Raggedy Ann, too and the pretty bonnet you made. I think I'll dress my old baby doll today. It makes me feel so good to play with my dolls. Have fun my dear friend! Hugs, Diane
