When I was a little girl, I had a Bunny Ragdoll that literally went everywhere with me.  My dad used to call it Melly’s Teddy.  I designed my first Melly Teddy about 4 years ago, making a sleepy bunny for my little girl.  Friends saw it, liked it and ordered them from me, and eventually I took the plunge and wrote a pattern for the bunny.  I released my first Melly Teddy Ragdoll “Sleepy Bunny” in June 2019, followed quickly by “Eliah Ellie”, “Rainbow Unicorn”, “Snowman Family”, “Giant Panda Bear” and the Mermaids.

Fireman Fred is the 7th member of the Melly Teddy Ragdoll Family.
