    Nope... Sunbonnet Sue is a applique quilt block pattern. Holly Hobby was a doll.

          They do look a lot alike! When we lived in Okinawa, we bought my neice a Holly Hobby doll named Heather. I was pregnant at the time, and if it was a girl, her name would be Wendy Dyan. As luck would have it, I had a very rough delivery after which my husband named her Heather, after that doll! I never liked the name all that much, but it does fit her.

            I think one is an adaptation of the other. The Sunbonnet Sue being around a long long time before Holly Hobby and someone changed it to be a Holly Hobby.

                I found the McCall's Pattern I used in the 1980's ( it's a McCall's Pattern ) on Ebay....You probably could find a pattern to purchase somewhere. The Raggedy Ann dolls were a big thing in the 1980's. MY MIL made one for each one of our kids, and I made several more for my nieces & nephews. This were life-size ( 3- 3 1/2 ft tall ) ....and really easy to make. My MIL crocheted the eyes & the mouth on the dolls we both made...

                Here's a link from Amazon...they sell the Raggedy Ann & Andy pattern too:

                    I used to make dolls and teddy bears. Not really difficult, just kind of "fiddely." Lots of curved seams. so clip and smooth when you turn them. You can buy plastic joints for arms and legs at the big craft stores. They lock together so the joints move. I used poly stuffing for the limbs, head and top part of the body. Then filled the rest of the body with plastic pellets, so the toy was squishy. Some had embroidered faces and some I painted.
                    Quilters never die, they just go batts.

                        I made a Holly Hobby doll way way back when I was oh maybe 12 or so years ago.

                        I also have a sunbonnet sue quilt on my *to do* list with the 30's fabrics I been collecting

                              I made Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls for all 3 of my kids...the dolls were easy...it was sewing on yarn hair that was killer. My fingers were raw meat. But on a brighter note, they were precious! LOL
