Vintage Raggedy Ann

I learned an important lesson making this car seat blanket: Never use stretch denim. For any reason. The inside of this one started out being stretch denim. I'd walk away from sewing, come back and the denim was bigger or smaller or foldy or something weird. Booo. The red with cream polka dots looks better anyway. (I used a little of the denim on the handles because I ran out of polka dots.)
I think this Raggedy Ann fabric is so sweet, but I don't really know anyone who "fits" it. I ended up using it for my friend, Angie's, new niece. They live in the Midwest. That works, right? :)
