Tiny Topsy the tooth fairy

Just straight knitting, no shaping, no strange abbreviations and easy to follow instructions with lots of pictures to guide you. This is what you'll find in the FREE PATTERN for Tiny Topsy, the doll that I promised to design for new knitters. She's just the right size for a doll house and little girls will love her so I hope you'll be tempted to give her a go. Before I give you the pattern details I thought you'd like to see Tiny Topsy at home.

Tiny Topsy lives in a tiny house with lots of other dolls, but Topsy is special. The little girl who owns the house knows that when a wobbly tooth falls out she must leave it on Topsy's tiny table.

When the little girl is fast asleep Tiny Topsy works her magic and becomes a tiny tooth fairy. Her little pearl button brooch turns into a pretty pearl necklace and her knitted apron becomes lace. She has pink ribbons in her hair and a golden crown. But best of all, her fluffy duster changes into a magic wand.

The fairy waves her wand and the little girl's tooth magically becomes a shiny silver coin.

In the morning when the little girl wakes up she remembers the tooth and runs to Tiny Topsy's table. The tooth has gone and in it's place she finds the silver coin.

Tiny Topsy smiles because only she knows the secret of the tooth fairy's magic.

If you know a little girl who'd love to own a Tiny Topsy tooth fairy why knit one for her. She's an upside down (topsy turvy) doll and very easy to make.

I have produced a PDF pattern which you can download onto your computer and print out. You might find downloading the pattern takes a few seconds.

  1. How very, VERY cute! I would like one myself...are we ever too old for a darling topsy-turvy? When adults lose a tooth in this country, they get a big bill from the dentist. A cute little girl like this would sweeten the experience!

    Happy weekend!

  2. I love love love this! Thanks!

  3. Topsy is adorable Eli as I knew she would be. Well done again!!

    Oh, I love her! Evangeline would have loved to have had her when she lost a tooth the other night~ I hope once we get settled in I'll have some time to work on my knitting, so I can be like you :) .



  10. I adore ALL your dolls, and will definitely by making this one. I think I will make her a Christmas/Hannukah doll, though - red and green on one side, and blue and white on the other.

    We shall see. Thank you for the lovely pattern!
