Geez, you are just the greatest. Thanks for sharing your pattern and your super tips! You have a good weekend yourself. :-)


What a sweet little baby. Thanks for the tutorial. =)

Mama Urchin

Thanks for the tips. That little sprig of hair at the top is so cute.


Hum, I'dont speak english very well, but I'll try to sew this cute lavender baby ... (Grrrr I speak englisk like a spanisk cow...)


Thanks for the good little tips-like backing with cotton and the ear shaping tip is a gem. Who woulda thunk it? Only question I have is how to embroider the face--where did you put those knots, honey?
ps. please post more often--I can't get enough of Molly Chicken!


i think i might make these as gifts for the parents of new babies...i always want to give them a little something too.


Thanks for posting this! So cute.


ps-thank you!!!

Love it! So cute, I have to agree with Claire above though - the embroidery looks the hardest part! Any chance of a tutorial on how to embroider faces? x

You make the best free stuff!

I gave you a 'You make my day award' on my blog.

I just love yours and follow it with delight!


Thank you for sharing the tips about backing and the ears.
I would have embroidered the face before sewing, that's so much easier!

Holy cow. This is adorable!


Thanks a lot for the tutorial. It's so cute the levender baby :)


Once again, a great tutorial. Thank you so much. I really love all the step by step photos. I'm a visual learner.


Sweet! Thanks for sharing.


I've just made a little mouse with a help of one of your tutorials. Thank you so much! I love my little mouse and I published a photo of it on my blog today. Ok, I admit, he's got a bit too big ears but it makes him even more special because of that. Thanks again!

I love it! I am definitely going to be making one of these with my eight year old daughter tomorrow. She wants to make our new baby a present and this would be perfect!


This is just in time! I am making some tiny little people for my daughter's first birthday and am planning on giving them felt legs and arms. What a genius idea!


That is so sweet (I love the thought of having a little baby that smells like lavender)! Thank you for sharing!

ei! kumpel

Thanks for sharing! This baby is so cute. It is a great idea for a welcome to the world gift:)


ha ha ha ha ha ha.
that is all i can do after reading your last few posts.

love your un-resolutions!
your new york stories.
your confessions.
you are one cool mama!


Thanks Lyn! I just made one of these for a friend who is trapped at home with her 3 sick kids, (4 if you count hubby) guaranteed to raise a smile! I made a bag for it to hide in, you can just see the top of the head and hair poking out. V. Cool!


I love the smell of lavender. I put it in all of my pillows, too. Those sweet little booties you made are so cute! They almost make me want to have another baby...almost.


This is just so precious and so sweet!!! I love it! Thank you for sharing the tutorial with us! :) Also wanted to let you know that you're on my "homey inspirations" list on my blog!!!



How cute! Have to make this...


Mollychicken, can I please please post a link to your blog on my blog? I really enjoy it and I know my friends would too.

Mystic Meg tells me she sees many of these in my future! Thanks for sharing!


I forgot to thank you for posting this - i know just the little bundle of mischief i'm making one for.

Honor Bowden

Hi, just found your delightful blog! Was inspired to make this cute baby, thanks so much for sharing... I've posted mine on my site with links back to you for your wonderful work.



Thanks for sharing! I love your blog. Not only are you talented but say godamnit and eat too much chocolate. Pretty much my first two requirements for an interesting woman.


This is adorable! Thanks for the tutorial :)


Just wanted to tell you some news....When you first posted this tutorial I loved it but didn't even know my daughter was pregnant. Then she was ! - and on Wednesday I started making and gradually improving my finished dolls as my daughter went through her VERY long labour.Concentrating on sewing (which does not come naturally to me ! )helped to stop me being quite as anxious as I might have been, and your brilliant instructions brought about some very sweet dollies.I even gave her the pink one despite the fact that she had a little boy two days later. She loved them so much,so thankyou for sharing you wonderful invention and skill.I'm going to make one for me now ! Josephine


Thank you for the tutorial :o) ... I helped my doughter (7 years old) to make one last weekend


Thanks for sharing these cute projects
I speak french so I can understand
Merry christmas
