Last year I was granted permission by Carm with Shweet Potato Designs to use her graphics as inspiration for a line of Shweet Potato Dolls and Patterns. To me Carm has captured the essence of Raggedy Ann without infringing on her Copyrighted Image. Her graphics are Annies from her heart!
As doll creators and artists we use Raggedy Ann as our mentor and guide and we create from there. There are many styles and sizes of our Shweet Potato Dolls and at this point to me Shweet Potato Dolls are a Raggedy style all their own.
To My Little Wednesday Raggedy
And even This Little Halloween Raggedy Riding a Kitty
Raggedy Ann has been a huge influence in many of our lives, from childhood to adulthood, she has been there to dry our tears and ease us through the pain of heartbreak and illness.
Happy Bithday Raggedy Ann! You are my inspiration!
Come by tomorrow to see how Raggedy Ann has morphed into critters and bugs.
