Jo-Jo is having a day lovely day at the beach. He’s been busy in the sunshine, making sand castles with his bucket and spade.
His Frilled sun hat is removable, to reveal a sweet little tuft of hair hidden underneath, and he can kick off his sandals to go paddling in the sea.
Jo-Jo is just the right size for small hands to hold and cuddle
Seaside Jo-Jo doll and his accessories have very few seams and are knitted flat.

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.
