Pram amuser

When T was small he loved it when I hung little things to play with across his pram. But you don't have to go out and buy something. If you finger-knit or crochet a length of yarn you can string that across, and then tie little toys to it.

Small dolls are lovely for this.

I've been going to a Steiner doll-making group for a few weeks, and the women make these tiny little dolls, with bodies like little bags, from scrap fabric, and heads made out of stretch hemp or old jersey t-shirt material. You can make lots in a small amount of time, then tie them all together in a row - perfect for a pram amuser!

I found an online tutorial for similar dolls here

At my group though they make em even simpler - just a small bag of some left-over fabric.

If you use different textures for each doll and different coloured wool hair and things they will all have great individuality!
