Paz - a basic knitted bear

Here's Paz - a basic knitted bear. I've finished knitting up some basic bears - simple to knit and look fab in variegated yarn, or in soft cuddly yarn - you can choose what type of yarn - I've used La Paz yarn 1 x 100g ball on 3mm needles to make this 17 inch bear. Of course I recommend embroidering a nose and eyes if it's for a small child under 3 years.
pattern now available in my Etsy shop:

Introducing Amelia & Mousie Mousie

Introducing Amelia and MousieMousie!
I've made two different dressing options - I love knitting cables - a snuggly mohair jumper and hat with cute ruffle pants - and a gorgeous long cable dress. I've also made some matching mousies - fun to make in lots of different yarns - as you can see I have had lots of fun experimenting with yarns!

Florence - my latest knitted doll

Introducing Florence - a dressed doll with 3 different floral-themed clothing options. All clothes and shoes are removable. Wow, so many options for making your own doll - poppies would look amazing, and what about a Spring or Summer garden theme?

Knitted Ballerina Doll - Evangeline

After years of sewing cloth rag dolls, I have finally branched into knitting dolls. 
So here is Evangeline, a ballerina, approx 20 inches high, knitted flat and seamed. She's got a little ballerina bunny. I think she needs a whole class of these little bunnies to teach!  xx

Pattern is now available in  my Etsy store.

Myka, Lillian and Gracie

Myka Mouse, Lillian Bunny and Gracie Bear are just waiting for their ballet class.  These are from the larger mouse and bunny (and soon to come bear) ballerina patterns. 

I've knitted them in a mohair blend;  the yarn was supposed to be 8 ply, but really too thin, so I knitted these little sweeties on size 13/ 2.25 needles.  Exactly the same as the larger toys, but how sweet are they are little miniatures!
