Bumps in the Night Annie Swap

I participated in my second Annie swap with Aunt Pitty Pat as the host. This was the Bumps in the Night Annie Swap and we all had to use the same doll pattern and then decorate her up however we wanted with a Halloween theme. My partner was Irma and she sent me this super cupte Snow White Annie. She is so cute and she can't wait to sit in my craft room next to my elf from The Elves and the Shoemaker and my Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz that I received in other swaps.

Irma also made these really cool spiders. The have tootsie rolls in them and then pipe cleaners for the legs. Very cute and an idea I'm going to borrow for next year!

This is the Annie that I made for Irma. She is a Cheetah with her sidekick Kitty.

I can't wait to make some more Annie's. They are really fun and a huge Thank You to my sweet friend AwtemNymf for telling me how to make the loopy hair (it saved me a ton of time!) and for giving me the Kitty pattern in one of her giveaways.
