How cute are these little faces. I made these little dolls and baskets just before Christmas, long before my blogging days. I made the dolls and blankets out of fabric and crocheted the little beds/ baskets. I came across this tutorial for the little dolls and just had to give it a go. A special thanks to, http://beccamariedesigns.blogspot.ie/2012/04/swaddle-baby-tutorial.html I more or less just made the bed as I went along, making a base, crocheting up the sides ( sort of how you would crochet a shoe or slipper)and adding the hood with a little flower to the side. The sides of the basket flip-up and it turns into a bag with the wee doll snuggled up inside. I used a double-knit wool and 4mm hook. I’m sure there are proper tutorials out there if you want to give it a try.
Thankfully these little dolls were adopted by loving families and are getting lots of love and attention.
Sometimes the simplest of toys bring the most joy, what do you think?
