Happy Saint Nicholas Day! Mistletoe and Cranberry dolls
My niece asked me to crochet some Christmas stockings for her two boys so I looked all around the web to find a decent crochet stocking pattern.
I found one here that I really loved. It didn't look "blocky" like the other patterns.
So, here's the finished stockings. (Click on the pictures to enlarge them).
These are front and back photos.
After I crocheted them, I made the felt decorations from an old felt ornament kit. Then I sewed them on.
I also wanted to make them monkey dolls. I had gotten a kit from Herrschner's called "sock" Monkeys They aren't really made from socks but crocheted instead. I really had a hard time understanding the directions so I wound up just winging it.
Then I made the felt tunic and hats too. The red one I named Cranberry and the green is Mistletoe. (Their names are stitched on the tunics).
I tucked them into their stockings and sent them off to Wisconsin. Hope the boys enjoy them!
