Merry Christmas and last minute gifts

Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas, and a New Year filled with Joy!

It is the 23rd of December, and I've just finished my last minutes gifts;  I wasn't going to do this, but I found this charming pattern for a little fox, and just had to make three of them as stocking stuffers for my nephews :-)


The pattern can be found at this link:  Genuine Mudpie Squinty Fox .  The pattern is quick, simple, and very well written.  I made three of them last night!  I plan to add a little beaded lanyard to the top so the boys can clip them to a zipper pull or backpack.  They stand about 2 3/4 inches tall from the base to the tip of their ears.

And, as a Christmas gift, I have a pattern for a small wardrobe of tiny knit outfits for small (5 1/2 inch) dolls.  I used my tiny Simply Ami dolls for models; they are a little over 5 inches when worked with fingering weight yarn and a size 1 steel hook.  These knits should also fit Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls, and BJD's in the 12 to 16 cm size range.



Tiny Knits for Tiny Dolls

The outfits are knit with fingering weight yarn and size 0 (2.00mm) double point needles.  The pattern includes pull over sweaters, pants, pinafore dress and rompers.  The elf hat the girls are wearing is from my Pocket Spirit Christmas Hat pattern (found on the left sidebar of this blog) worked in fingering weight yarn and a size 1 steel crochet hook.

However you celebrate the holiday season, I hope it is filled with love of family, and childlike joy!

I adore my little crocheted people crocheted from your patterns, all of them worked up so beautifully. I also appreciate your links and have visited a number of them. Merry Christmas, lovely lady and thank you for your gift of talent, that you share so willingly. I hope you have a truly beautiful holiday.

  7. Beth, I'm always inspired and my fingers start itching to grab my hook when I visit your site! The tiny Ami dolls are--quite possibly--the most wonderful, magical patterns I've yet seen here. Tiny things are irresistible. Thank you for sharing them and their house, and thank you for your kindness this past year. Happy New Year!
    Love, Nicki B
