Home-Made Toys – presented by The Australian Women’s Weekly
A 52 page PDF containing a range of wooden toys, knitted dolls and animals to make for children during World War II (early 1940s).
Patterns included are:
– Gay and Friendly Elephant
– Jerry Long-Legs doll
– Wendy the WAAAF doll
– Peter the Penguin
– Crocheted Doll’s Furniture
– Terry the Tortoise
– Pronto the Donkey
– Scottie Dog
– Wooden toys, such as a cotton-reel dragon, balancing horse, carts, trains, planes and battle ships
– and much more!
Advertisements from the time are also present, for that taste of life during the forties.
Trigger warning – just a heads up, one of these patterns uses the ‘n’ word when talking about brown.
Please note all my patterns have a faint watermark.
