Jesse and Josie are best friends. They are big enough for rough and tumble games, but small enough to cuddle at bedtime. Their hair will always look good, I’ve included a photo tutorial in the pattern to show how I add it.
Jessie wears a stripy hat and sweater with long trousers and shoes. Josie wears a bobble hat, single stripe sweater, Capri length trousers and shoes.
My clear and detailed 12-page pattern is full of photos and information to guide you through every stage of knitting, stuffing, adding hair and finishing Jesse, Josie and their 2 outfits.
Jessie and Josie’s head, body, legs and feet are knitted from the top down as one flat piece; there is a centre back seam from the crown of the head to the start of the legs. The legs have a seam on the inner side and the feet have a seam along the middle of the sole. The arms and hands are knitted in one piece and sewn into place after stuffing

What others have made
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.
