Giveaway Day - Handmade Rag Doll

Welcome to Giveaway Day!  For the handmade category, I'm giving away this cute rag doll.
I named her Penelope, but you can name her whatever you want!  She's a little bit feisty and very sassy in her chevron tights and grey dress.  I made her using the rag doll tutorial I put together.
Rag Doll Body
Rag Doll Hair
Rag Doll Face
Rag Doll Dress
Rag dolls are a great last minute gift idea.  Not that December 12th qualifies as last minute.  Noooooo!
 Watch out!  She likes to have fun!  To win her, leave a comment.  Tell me what your favorite childhood gift was.  If you are already a follower or choose to follow me today, leave another comment telling me that you did so.

The giveaway will close Friday, December 16th at 5PM PST.  I will ship to theUS or Canada.

  6. My favorite gift as a child has to be a rag doll from my Grandma when I was seven.

    My daughters would love this doll and I'm pretty sure they would keep Penelope as her name!

  7. She is SO cute!!!


    My favorite gift when I was a little girl was when I got a new bike -- my dad had hand painted it, put on some fun decals, a new banana seat (I thought I was SO cool!), and a license plate with my name on it. :)

  8. What a sweet doll! My grandma made me a rag doll with a carrying bad that folds out into a flower. I loved it so much and I still have it! I went searching for the pattern and if you can believe it, a reader of mine had one, from 25 years ago and sent it to me. :) How amazing is the blogging world?

  48. For those of you reading this comment, check out Keri's tutorial on how to make a rag doll - I made my first from the tutorial and it was really easy to understand (though mine didn't turn out as adorable as hers). Anywho, my daughter would love a "sister" for her Amelia and Corrie dolls. Hey, I saw your living room - just wait 'til next year when Amelia becomes a tornado (oops, I meant toddler - Ha!). Oh, what was the question? :)C

  52. My favorite gift as a kid was my very first sewing basket, complete with accessories and notions. I was able to pass on almost all the included tools to my daughter this past year to start her out on her first sewing basket. I had my first one until just last year when we moved...so it stayed with me for nearly two decades.

  54. I can't really remember a favorite gift, but somewhere along the line my grandfather gave me a bear puppet that I named Beaver. He now keeps watch over my daughter every night, so I suppose I have to call him my favorite gift even though I don't remember receiving him (it's like he's always been there:). Thanks!

  65. My favorite was Barbie clothes, way back when Barbie was first invented. I had a single mom, and we were poor, really, really poor. She came home after work and made my sister and I each a big collection of Barbie clothes. We may have been the poorest kids in class, but we didn't know it. Every single girl in class was jealous of our great collection!

  67. This doll is so cute. My favorite childhood gift was an old Barbie doll from my parents. It was at a local antique shop and I looked at it every time we were there. I was so sad one day when it was not there any more but later found out that they had bought it for me.
    Thanks,

  69. My late sister and I had Tammy dolls as a gift one Christmas. We took them swimming (the bathroom sink), sat in their living room (we made with matchboxes, spools, roofing metal, and other found objects). Lots of imagination with the poor people's version of a Barbie.
