Teeny Tiny Crochet Bedding Tutorial

Hello! Welcome to my cutest project yet 🙂 don’t these little bunnies look ever so snuggly in their Granny Square beds?!

I love a quick project that works up fast and uses up little odd balls of yarn. Alternatively this might be a great introduction to crochet for you! I would recommend Bella Coco, Happy Berry Crochet and Coastal Crochet tutorials to learn new stitches, and grow your confidence. All of these ladies explain things so well, and you can pause, rewind and actually concentrate in peace and quiet in your own time, what a bonus!

This is what you’ll need to make your very own set of Crochet bedding that is perfect for little hands and also Sylvanian Families, Happy Land, playmobile, or other small toy friends to enjoy.

* wool needle / darning needle

ABBREVIATIONS

CH- chain

HTR – half treble
