That's me on the left, my cousin in the middle in the homemade clown suit with fabric that had Rice-A-Roni on it (???), and my sister on the right. We will be 50, 43, and 47 this year. Please take a moment to appreciate the custom slipcovers on that couch, will you?
Anyway . . . my choices for DeAngelis patterns were Matilda . . .
. . . or Raggy Maggie.
I didn't love either one. Matilda's face wasn't right and Raggy Maggie was too simple for my taste. I did a little digging online for some photos so I could add some details. I decided if I changed the face on Matilda and added stripes to the stockings, that would do the trick. I had intended to do some little polka dots or something on the dress, but once I got all the pieces done I decided it didn't need it. Here's my finished product . . . let's call her Raggedy Matilda, shall we??
I fully intended to do a Raggedy Andy, but January ran out on me. February is ornaments for Mariah. If I get time later in the year, I'll swing back around and stitch Matilda a friend.
