Together, we’ve created Nils & his goosey gander, Morten inspired by the book, “The Wonderful Adventures of Nils” by Selma Lagerlöf. A delightful book published in 1906. If you’re not familiar with the book, here are some links for more info, along with copies to read or listen to:

So, here is naughty Nils Holgersson, Li’tl Bitty Bit made by With Love, Hannah, along with his goosey gander, Morten, made by Inviting Play.

Nils, a Lit’l Bitty Bit boy, is made with organic cotton fabric and stuffed with pure eco wool. He is tow headed using a undyed brushed mohair yarn. His face is embroidered with cotton floss. He has a tiny, sculpted belly button & bottom.

Nils wears brown “leather” breeches made with cotton fabric. His shirt is a woven, pure cotton fabric & his vest is made with wool felt. His red hat is cotton knit. All of his clothing is removable.
Morten the goose is crocheted with fuzzy mohair yarn and stuffed with wool. The design is a unique free form crochet design by Inviting Play and is a one of a kind creation. His tiny eyes are jasper stone beads and as such he is not fit to be a toy for young children.
Nils measures 4″/10cm & fits in your hand with his goosey gander, Morten.
