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
