You can trust my patterns to be professional, well written, and carefully proofread. My background as a teacher and later as an editor helped me in my goal to write professional crochet patterns, and I also follow the guidelines for writing crochet patterns set up by the DRG publishing network.
If you find a valid mistake in one of my patterns and point it out to me, I will refund the cost of the pattern to you! (Applies only to individual patterns, not collections.)
I learned to crochet at the age of ten but didn't get passionately involved with it until many years later when my son was born. I still love to make baby clothes and blankets even though he's not a baby anymore! All things tiny are what I enjoy crocheting, especially doll clothes and baby clothes.
I have created many of my own patterns that have been published in various magazines (Crochet World, Quick & Easy Crochet, Barbie Bazaar, and Dollhouse Miniatures). I have had 2 crochet books published: "Twentieth Century Fashion Doll Collection" (2006, by Annie's Attic) and "Playtime Jackets" (2011, by Leisure Arts).
You get 5 crochet patterns in one with the purchase of this woodland/ fairy tale pattern!
This is "Hunting for Truffles," that I designed for a 7-8" child doll, such as Riley and friends by Kish. You should probably be able to use this same pattern for Betsy McCall, Madame Alexander's Wendy, Madeline, Ginny, tiny Ann Estelle, and the mini American Girl dolls.
Includes instructions to make a miniature toy badger, a basket for collecting truffles, a zippered and hooded coat for a doll, pillows with badger silhouettes, and a happy truffle blanket.
(Note: The badger is made out of punch-embroidery yarn. You can substitute #10 crochet cotton with a smaller crochet hook, but you won't get the fuzzy texture of the punch-embroidery yarn. Punch-embroidery yarn can usually be found on eBay or Etsy.)
Feel free to sell any items you make from my patterns (but do not mass produce). Please do not resell the patterns themselves or make them available online. They are copyrighted.
Contact me if you have any questions or feedback! :)
