I've found three more homemade gift ideas for today in my 1950s Woman and Home magazine collection. The first is this lovely crochet square in fine yarn. As the patterns says, what would please her more, and I think I'd be very pleased to receive such an elegant gift too.

Not so sure the two children's gifts would be so well received by today's kids though. You might get away with the muff for a very small girl but though I love the pipecleaner family myself I can't imagine many dolls house owners choosing them over a modern shop bought family. But perhaps they could be a project to try when the festivities are over.

If you would like to try the crochet pattern right click on the image, open in a new window and click to enlarge. If this doesn't work and you can't get a good image drop me a line and I'll send you a scan.


  1. I remember making pipe cleaner people and dressing them. Great to see the original patterns. Thankyou for your well wishes. Hugs Mrs A.

  2. Aww these patterns are so cool! I don't remember ever making pipe cleaner people but will definitely give it a go with my daughter. Thank you for sharing these gorgeous patterns.
