Gift from the Heart

Gift from the Heart

A friend of mine is absolutely ‘gaga’ about all things Native American. She recently visited and I took her to Joseph and Pendleton, OR where she could tour Tamastslikt Cultural Institute and many shops in both Joseph and Pendleton with a variety of Native American handcrafts.

She fell in love with a TeePee, but couldn’t figure out how to put it in her luggage and take home to Denmark. That’s when I got an idea to make a gift from the heart. And, a living in the right brain coup.

The Search

Native American Doll

I began with doing a Google search for a Native American doll to crochet and found an amigurumi pattern that was easy to follow and the outcome satisfying.

TeePee Pattern

Then my search turned to finding a crochet pattern for a TeePee Success and free!!! It took a bit to find the cattle skull, but the feathers, BonBon cotton yarn and Thunderbird charms I found at JoAnn’s. I had most of the yarn I needed on hand in my stash.

Gift from the Heart

“How many hours to make this?” you ask…. Approximately 50 hours….at $10/hr….you do the math…but that’s why it’s a gift from the heart.
