I’m happy to present my Humpty Dumpty pattern to you all! This seems an ideal time of year to release an egg doll seeing that Easter is just around the corner! 🙂 But of course this little guy is the beloved character from the classic Mother Goose nursery rhyme, and can be enjoyed year round!

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

When made with the recommended materials, this doll is just under 4inches/9cm high from his head to the floor, not including his hat
