Nursing Toy Set Free Crochet Pattern



Happy Tuesday my friend!


Today's post is dedicated to all the extraordinary people in the world that are on the frontline of the coronavirus outbreak.

A big Thank You to all the doctors, nurses, hospital and care facilities workers, who have been working without rest, putting also their life at risk!


Talking about doctors, who has never dreamed of becoming one when little?!?

When I was a kid I would spend hours playing and taking care of my "sick" dolls, checking their temperatures, listening to their heart beat and giving them shots!


Well, with today's free project, you'll be able to create a little nursing set for your little one that features a stethoscope, a syringe and a thermometer!
