Crocheted Heart Dolls

These crocheted heart shaped dolls from Crafty Anna blog are so adorable and easy to make.  Your child will enjoy finding one under their pillow, in their lunch box, and putting it in their pocket!
If you prefer sewing a doll similar to this, instead of crochet, you can find the pattern in the Winter 2008 issue of Living Crafts.

Book Review – Little Crochet

Dear Linda,

Why must you make such beautiful projects to make us want to cut corners from our vacation or lunch money so we could buy your book? It’s not fair!

That’s how I would start my letter to Linda, who has come up with the most unique crochet desgins for babies and children. If you have already overspent your book budget for this year, you must run to the library and request that they purchase this book for you and your community [along with a subscription to Living Crafts magazine of course]:
