Sesame Street Dolls

I got these patterns sometime in the 70's from crochet pattern trades that were advertized in Crochet World Magazines from Tower Press. They were all just black and white copies of the actual patterns, and they are not in very good shape after all these years so I will not be able to make copies of the patterns and email them to anyone since the instructions for the most part would not be readable. I am having to re-type each set of instuctions for each pattern. I also do not have the time to email these patterns to everyone who wants them. Hopefully you will be able to get the instuctions here. Just let me know if for some reason the blog stops working again, and I will see what I can do to get it going.

Bring the thread up at A and hold down with thumb, insert the needle at A again, and bring the point out a short distance away. Pull through keeping thread under the needle.

Finishing:
Garbage Can:
Cut 2 round liners (4 ¼” diameters) from heavy cardboard. Insert 1 liner in base of garbage can, stuff to rnd 18. Insert 2nd liner, press down. With Grey yarn, embroider 2 rows of chain st around top and base. Embroider chain st in vertical lines as illustrated. Sew body to garbage can, using back loops of round 18.

Hi! I know you posted these patterns a long time ago, but I have a friend who is looking for the big bird pattern. Her son had a doll made in 1978 that was lost in a fire. Now her dad, who is 89 years old, wants that doll to give to his great great grandson! She is beside herself trying to find the pattern to make a new one! If you wouldn't mind sharing the pattern would you please email it to me? If you still have it? Thank you!E
