Mushroom Manor Revisted


This is a project I made back in 2013, which I put on Ipernity.  Since then, I've returned to Flickr, and the tutorial for this is no longer available in Ipernity.  I've been asked by a couple of folks what happened to it, so I've finally put the tutorial on Flickr.

It is primarily a picture tutorial, with no written instructions.  The crochet is done by fit, as you go along, but there are plenty of pictures to help you.  You can find the tutorial here:

Mushroom Manor

The Manor is sized for small dolls, about five inches tall.  It was originally made for my Forget-Me-Knot dolls, but Nancy Ann's and tiny BJD's will be quite at home here as well.

Some of the little embellishments are available on this blog under Crochet An Outdoor Setting; just scroll down the left sidebar until you find it.

Enjoy the crochet!

  5. Dear Beth,
    Thank you so much for posting the picture tutorial. I hope to figure it out some day as I'm a dope when it comes to increasing single crochets. Sometimes my projects start to curl up because I didn't space my sc increase the right distance. This is where knowing math would have come in handy I'm sure! lol Your work is so pretty and I love stopping by your blog and visit often.
    Blessings,
    Ann

    1. Ann, if your crochet curls a bit, you can get the curl out by simply dampening the piece with water (I use a spray bottle and just mist it), then lay it on a towel and flatten it out. If necessary, use a few pins to hold it in place while it dries. Almost like magic, the curl will be gone!

      Good Luck! I hope you try it :-)

      warmly,

      Beth
