Bitsy baby looks super cute today in a fluffy Easter Chick costume. It’s the perfect outfit for going on an Easter egg hunt! Bitsy has been lucky and found two big eggs!!
Bitsy Baby’s body and head are knitted in one piece and after seaming and stuffing the legs are created by sewing a seam through from front to back to divide the legs. The arms use very simple shaping and are sewn on when making up this cute little character.
Bitsy Baby is a cute little pocket sized doll. Size-14cm /5.5”- Just the right size to fit in a pocket!

My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.
I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!
I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.
Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.
I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.
In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.
I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.
It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.
I do hope you enjoy your knitting project and if you would like to read more about my work please visit my website www.clairefairalldesigns.co.uk
