Mushroom Manor on Flickr. All you need is some worsted yarn from your stash, and some cardboard and oatmeal containers that would probably end up in the landfill. Other embellishments to the scene are from this blog under 'Crochet an outdoor setting.'
Fern is also pleased to finally have some clothes! I made her a dress from some pretty crochet lace, for which there is a tutorial to do this.

Merlin the Hedgehog
Merlin is about 1 3/4 inches long, made from fingering weight and laceweight yarns. The perfect size companion for the Forget-Me-Knots. Larger versions can be made using sport or worsted weight yarns.

Her wig is full styling. The wig cap was crocheted with laceweight kid mohair yarn and a size 2 steel hook. I worked in the front loops for the entire cap, then hooked strands of yarn into the unworked loops all over the cap. Yarn was hooked into each stitch on the last row, then in every other stitch all around the cap. It took a little time, but it is easy to do and perfect if you're listening to good music or watching a movie.
Fern tells me she would like to live in a mushroom...hmmm....gotta think about this one for a bit :-)

She put on a sweater this morning to see how the Fairy garden was growing...
