About Maisy Muffin Rag Dolls

Maisy Muffin Rag Dolls

Handcrafted Toys - Unique little friends for unique little people

I've always loved making things and I've been fascinated with textiles since I was really small. I could knit and sew before I went to school and, when I was young, I often disappeared for hours and then reappeared with something I had created from materials around the house.
When I grew up I became a teacher and developed another love - writing.
My rag doll making started as a hobby a few years ago and soon became an obsession. Now I make two dressable character rag dolls called Maisy and Mo and little cotton mice called Little Nippers
I also write stories on the internet about my little characters because I love how young children get totally absorbed in imaginary worlds, so that the characters become their friends and they themselves become part of the story.
I work in a lovely sewing room, which is full of light and overlooks the garden. In the Winter months, it is really cosy, with lots of fairy lights - a lovely workshop, in which to create my little characters and write my stories.
Nothing appeals to me more than an art or craft item that has been lovingly created, with lots of attention to detail. (I always feel that part of the creator has gone into creating something when it is carefully and lovingly made.)
My toys are all made of best quality 100% cotton fabric and are CE safe.
They are not suitable for children under three, as they often have small buttons.

Maisy and Mo
I have created the Maisy and Mo range for children aged 3-7 - boy and girl rag dolls with their little puppy Molly.
Maisy Muffin and her best friend Mo live in a pretty village called Mulberry Green. Maisy lives with her mother and father on Mulberry Farm and Mo lives in a little cottage at the top of Mulberry Lane.
In the village there is a post office, a bakery, a sweet shop, a hardware shop that sells all kinds of useful things, a greengrocer’s, a draper’s – where Maisy’s mother buys all of the fabric and buttons to make Maisy’s pretty dresses, a butcher’s and a grocer’s – where you can get just about anything.
There is also a little church and, of course, a school – Mulberry Green Infants’ School, where Maisy and Mo are pupils.
Maisy has a cute little puppy, called Molly and Mo has a baby sister called Daisy.
Maisy and Mo live at a time when children had lots of freedom to explore the world around them and the pair love nothing more than having adventures.
Maisy and Mo are 35cm tall and are very cute.

Little Nippers
Little Nippers are communities of little mice, who live just about everywhere. You may have spotted some of them scurrying along the tracks on the London Underground or have noticed one on a village green in Shropshire. You may even have seen a Little Nipper on the sandy dunes at the seaside in Devon or Cornwall. They live in large cities like Birmingham and Manchester, as well as all of the tiny places, like Giddy Green and Whitwell-on-the-Hill. There are communities of Little Nippers in other countries too - from Russia in the North to Chile in the South; from Mexico in the West to Japan in the East. Wherever you go in the world, you will find Little Nippers and their young Pip Squeaks, living in families and communities and working and playing just like us.
Or maybe you won't find them, as they are sometimes very hard to spot - but they are always there. Don't forget, next time you are out, keep your eyes open and you may just see a Little Nipper scurrying about.
They are very friendly little mice - welcome to their world.
Little Nippers are 17cm tall, Pip Squeaks are 10cm and baby Pip Squeaks are just 7cm.

Little Hugs dolls - lille hygge
The Danish word hygge means enjoying life's simple pleasures and making everyday things special - we get our word hug from hygge.
Little Hugs (lille hygge) are tiny handcrafted dolls - each one unique and carefully made from amazingly soft yarn in beautiful colours. They are very tactile, full of hygge and will give lots of comfort and cosiness - they spend their days helping people to be thankful, value what they have and, in doing so, make the world a happier place.
Each doll is different and comes on a card with samples of the beautiful wool that has been used in its design.
The dolls are made from best quality materials and are CE safe for children over 3 years. They are approx 20cm tall.

Ragbag Pirates
I live in a little seaside town, famous for its pirates. Each year we hold a famous pirate festival, when the town is crowded with thousands of buccaneers and filibusters. What better inspiration for my little Ragbag Pirates - a really silly bunch, all with very fishy names, who spend their time sailing round Brixham Harbour, getting themselves into trouble. They are approx 20cm tall.

My dolls and mice make lovely gifts for young children or indeed anyone who is young at heart!
They are all handcrafted with love.

I hope you love my dolls and Little Nippers as much as I love designing and making them!

Unique little friends for unique little people!
