Here is the last one in my crocheted nativity series … Mother Mary cradling baby Jesus in her arms.
I loved crocheting Mary’s veil and kept stroking it down when I made it !! I wished I was a kid again and someone gifted me things like these when I was young. Sadly my daughter too is too old to play with this, but of course young enough to treasure it forever. I wished I learned to crochet much earlier in life. The joy of making things for your children and seeing them play with them is a wonderful rewarding experience. These days, I crochet scarves, purses and jewellery for her instead !
The pattern for this is from Crafty Cattery. I sewed the hands loosely so that the baby can be rocked !!
