Mama Squirrel's Crafting Photos (moved from the Family Keep Out page)

Sewing, crocheting, making stuff for family people:

Suede notebooks from a tutorial at LilBlueBoo,  Wreath ornament from Planet June.  Amigurumi penguin from a Woman's Day pattern.  Bookmark from a children's crocheting book, wiith Mini Wishing Star motif added.

Amigurumi turtles also from Woman's Day Magazine.
Kit models a pink party dress, made from a pattern in Sew the Essential Wardrobe for 18-Inch Dolls (yes, there's a resemblance to the comforter).
Crissy's new calico dress and purse set.  The dress is vintage Simplicity pattern 6061.  The purse is lined with the dress fabric; it was inspired by a full-size bag and poncho set (and a granny square pattern) in this 1976 craft magazine.  It actually has a nicer design on the other side (more grannies), but it got flipped over when I was wrapping it.
Mama Squirrel's magnum opus for this year:  a doll bedding set, made mostly from yard-saled fabrics and other things on hand.  I did have to buy thread, batting, and new fabric for the sheets...and a dollar-store mini flashlight for reading under the covers.
I used an amigurumi pattern for the koala (a mini version of Dollygirl's beloved Mr. K.), but scaled it down by using tapestry wool (really fine stuff--I had a bagful from the thrift store) and a small crochet hook.  The books are made from catalogue cutouts.
