When I started taking crochet many years ago in the mid 1990's, one of my very first projects where the clown dolls. The pattern was in an Afghan Magazine I picked up at a thrift store. I want to say the magazine was dated back in the 80's. So now I redid these dolls making them smaller than the original pattern.
I also made up some other toys for the grand kids like the little people and the mouse. The pattern for the mouse can be found here.
