My personal favourite yarn to use for crochet decorations is Scheepjes Catona. It is a sportsweight cotton yarn that is durable and comes in every color you could need
  • Crochet Hooks: Each of the patterns will have the crochet hook size that is required listed. You may need different hook sizes for some patterns that have seperate componants.
  • Other Notions: Other supplies you may need  a yarn needle, scissors, safety eyes, stitch markers, some toy stuffing and measuring tape.
