Raggedy Chen! That is too cute! Once upon a time I used to make Raggedy Ann dolls. Maybe I should do a couple of these!

I love the dolls and the name is so cute too. It's so hard to find Asian dolls.

Miss Ella looks so adorable! I love the picture of her with the leaf and especially the one with her hand on her hip. She's just beautiful....I wish I had her hair!
So glad you like the top!

Ella looks adorable in her new shirt! Her hair is so pretty! I've thought about trying to let Faith's bangs grow out, but once they start falling in her eyes I give up!:)

OH Miss Ella is precious in that little top!!! I just love it! You are getting to be a pro behind the camera, MOM!

Michelle- Love the dolls! They are great. Ella looks just beautiful in that top. I am keeping my fingers crossed that my Mom will start sewing some outfits like that. I have two left hands and am right handed. I have the e-books for the instructions on how to make the bows. She makes all of them- I don't know who sells them- EBay might have some vendors - but I have never bought any off eBay or anywhere else.
Let me know about the E-book.

CUTE top! Love the modeling phots. She is really a pretty little girl.

The raggedy dolls are cute. My great aunt made my sister and I a set when we were kids that were about 4 ft big. I still have mine. :-)

Have a great week!
