I made this cute little baby for a friend who is 2 weeks overdue to have her first.
The body and hat is made from vintage kimono offcuts, and the whole doll is stuffed with sheep fleece. The body of the doll is only lightly stuffed, which makes is good for chewing on.
The idea behind this toy design is that it mimics what very small babies experience of themselves - they are not quite aware of the rest of their body, sometimes they see their hands come flying past, but have not yet realised that they have legs.

Gorgeous, it looks so snuggly and chewable! Is there any chance of a quick how-to? I'd love to make one of these for a friend's baby... Smiley

I love these kind of dolls and I really like the fabric you have used.  As you say they are perfect for a baby that hasn't found out it has feet yet.  Did you use the pattern and instructions at Silver Penny?

Yes Elderflower, that is the same pattern to the one that I used. I'll see if I can post some pics of how to do one in the next week or so.
