Raggedy Ann and Andy Nursery Art

Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy Wall Hangings

Made in the USA in the 1970’s

Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy, just their names gives one a warm feeling inside. These pictures show Ann in a bright yellow jumper and her trademark gingham in the garden reaching for a watering can. Andy, wearing bib overalls, a gingham shirt, and blue cap  is hard at work hoeing the garden with his bluebird friends at his side.  The pictures are mounted on particle wood boards. Both boards measure 20 inches long by 16 inches wide. Big enough to be seen. There are original holes in the back of each making them easy to hang in the nursery. 

Raggedy Ann is a character created by Johnny Gruelle in a series of books from the early 1900’s he wrote and illustrated. Raggedy Andy was introduced in 1920.

Vintage Pattern Listings at Goofing Off Sewing

With the weather as crazy as it’s been, it is hard to believe it is still February and should be cold….as in winter snow and ice cold. I realize I live in the southern US but we do have a winter, albeit a short one. This year  is shorter than usual, though, so I thought it would be a good idea to list some spring and summer patterns. If it’s still cold in your part of the world you’ll have time to get ready for summer wear.

This is such a light, easy to wear dress. Great for around the house or a take-along.

Ok, not quite spring like but I love this look! The jacket is gorgeous and I’m sure not every spring evening will be warm.

This is the kind of jacket quilters love! The pattern even includes instructions to make a Courthouse Steps block.

Pigs in three sizes, 12 inches, 9 inches, and 6 inches. Make the little squealers in calico or whatever color suits your fancy.

Two sizes of lambs, 5 inches and 7 inches tall, a lamb and heart wreath and tiny hanging lamb. Lots of possibilities with this pattern.

A bit more realistic looking than the last lamb and bigger, too. Great Easter or Passover gift for the little ones.

I love crazy quilting and there are others like me. So much to add….embellish to your heart’s content! This pattern is multi sized and uncut.

Well, that’s it for GoofingOff Sewing for the moment. Lots of ideas for spring sewing. Remember, Easter and Passover are coming soon…..Easter is April 16 and Passover starts April 10. I’ll be having a sale, too. Further details coming.

Nothing  seems cuter than a little girl and her baby doll, except a little girl and her baby doll in matching outfits.

Great idea for holiday sewing.
