I used to love the dolls and toys my mom would make for me when I was a kid. I still have the Strawberry Shortcake she made for me one year. I don't even remember getting it so I must have been pretty young. Crochet toys are great because you can make them for a child of any age, including babies, because they are so soft and washable. If you are looking to make some crochet toys, here are 10 free crochet patterns for toys to inspire you.
