Emily - a Dress Up Bunch Rag Doll
What you get+-
Meet Emily! She's spunky and fun and loves to play outside. And she loves the freckles she gets from playing outside. :-) She doesn't like it when her hair gets in her face so she always wears it in braids. Last year even her bangs were too much so she cut them off completely - right at the roots! She loved it, but her Mom didn't - so now she's grown them out again. :-) Her favorite books are the Ramona Quimby series and her favorite food is a baked potato with lots of butter. Yum!
Emily can share clothes with everyone else in the Dress Up Bunch. Fun! She has weighted hands and feet for excellent flop, arms and legs that will go in any direction for great play and easy dressability, and plenty of cuteness! Emily is also very easy to make.

Emily is very easy to make – a great project for beginners. All the parts are nice and roomy for easy turning and stuffing, they all tuck easily inside the body for the final assembly, and there’s a nice straight back seam for turning and stuffing that’s easy to sew up by hand. If you know how to use your sewing machine you can make Emily.
