Baby in Jammies? Pixie Doll?

I sewed this in the last few days. Made up the pattern myself from a drawing I did from another drawing I liked. Lily calls it a baby. She gave it some of her milk today.
It's a good first effort, I think. I want to make more and make the face smaller and the middle fatter. And sew it wrong side out and flip it. The blanket stitch is cute but not so great on the points, which I glued to keep pointy.
I have oodles of felt now, between thrift store buys lately and the annual Textile Center Garage Sale yesterday, which I forgot about until 3pm, which was probably good, because then it was bag sale time, everything you can stuff in a grocery bag for $1. I spent $3. I had 25 minutes and just raced around grabbing things that looked good. I only ended up with one weird little bag of scraps that smells like cat...otherwise everything looked in good shape and when I went through it I could think of lots of uses for stuff.
