Jesse and Josie will have a sleepy bedtime with theses traditional stripy pyjamas, a snuggly soft Bathrobe with matching slippers and a Teddy to cuddle.

Jessie and Josie are each knitted with head, body, legs and feet worked as one 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 as one piece and sewn into place after stuffing.

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
