Tree Full of Friends Wall Hanging Part 1

ILC_april_small-115

“Tree Full of Friends” is the perfect toy for busy little hands. Children will enjoy popping flower petals onto oversized buttons and tucking an amigurumi owl, bluebird and squirrel into the tree’s cozy little pockets. This colorful toy, which also doubles as a children’s room decoration, offers a great opportunity to use up stash yarn.

We’ll be making this wall hanging over the course of three issues, and in this first installment, we will cover crocheting the background, including the tree.
