About Me

My photo
Upland, Ca, United States
Sissy Dre was inspired by my father, Robert Felix Rosales, particularly his stylish clothes and big-hearted ways of being. My father was always open to any new hobbies or opportunities and especially enjoyed meeting new people. I take on this creative venture to honor him in my own way. I have been making cloth dolls since January 2009 when I left the corporate world behind and moved to Upland, CA. with my family. Our lively household includes two teenage children, four dogs, six cats, and a wonderful husband who always supports us with love and grace. I had never worked a sewing machine before but I truly love making dolls and enjoy every aspect of creative life. Making dolls form scratch has opened artistic doors within me that I never knew existed and I hope this blog helps to inspire some crafty part of you too. 000000

Raggedy Ann or Pippie Long Stocking?

My partner Janet Schultz, wanted to collaborate on the 1915 Raggedy Ann doll. 
She wanted to see if we could come up with a modern version and 
still keep ~ the somewhat original look. 

I'm not sure if I was able to attain much of the original look ~ 
however, I did have Raggedy Ann in mind when I finished my version of her ~ 
and I believe "Pippe Long Stocking" got in my head as ~ I was going down this path too.

Here she is ... with her friend "Little Raggedy" ~ 








Rejoice Always ~


Much Love ~
Andrea
