TO MAKE: Retro 1970s CRECHE NATIVITY SET - This is enhanced from original tiny tiny print that is now in PDF LARGE PRINT that is in an EASY TO READ LAYOUT - instructions for all dolls, their clothing, animals and manger are included.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Give your children a CRECHE they CAN PLAY WITH - "Stop! Don't touch. That's not a toy." How many times have children heard those words as they've reached out to touch the creche under the tree? Too often, probably. Most creches are fragile, elaborate and artistic - definitely not for children. THIS ONE IS DIFFERENT. It's made from soft papier-mache that won't break no matter how much it's touched. The animals and people are really cuddly stuffed dolls. In short, it's a creche that's made to be handled! It's FAIRLY EASY TO MAKE, too.

All you need is some time and easy-to-get materials like cotton fabric, yarn and polyester stuffing.

Follow the instructions and add your own special touches - a glittery star for the Wise Men to follow, or sequined containers for their gifts - you are the designer. ---> digitally restored/enhanced is now in EASY TO READ LARGE PRINT.

===>>> NOTE: As you can imagine these vintage pattern sizes are small so understand that you will work this pattern in EXACTLY THE THE SAME FORMAT AS USED BY EVERY OTHER PERSON BEFORE fun! This vintage pattern is shown in 1" squares so YOU MUST RESIZE/ENLARGE/SIZE-UP to 1"...luckily "today" we have copy machines...yeah! [Also, you can resize to your own desired size. :)] <<<===

Just Won't Print - or - Printing is Small -> what happened? Here are three things you need to do to print:

1. OPEN - your PDF with Adobe. is free to download worldwide.

2. HARDWARE - Most are able to download to their smartphones but it all depends on your own personal hardware. Don't see a DOWNLOAD BUTTON?
That means your hardware (phone or tablet) might be outdated for this function. You need to USE A LAPTOP TO DOWNLOAD.

3. YOUR PRINTER SETTINGS - Make sure your own computer is set to print at FULL SCREEN/SCALE-TO-FIT-MEDIA.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a refund for my PDF Pattern?

No, due to the nature of digital files, there are NO returns, exchanges, or cancellations. All sales are final.

What YARN do I use?

Vintage Beso specializes in Vintage Patterns; therefore, vintage yarn does not usually exist anymore. I do not give yarn recommendations to this crucial decision.

Once you purchase the pattern, you can research that based on the information provided in the pattern. Some clues to look for are the descriptive words and ply, for example, 2-ply or 4-ply.

Now, all that being said - I do give an Exclusive Supplemental Gift with tons of info but that does not mean that it has the specific info you are looking for.

*Modern equivalent yarns need to be researched as most vintage yarns were manufactured by the companies who created the patterns and no longer exist.*

Just Won't Print - or - Printing is Small -> what happened?

Here are two things you need to do to print:

1. Open your PDF with Adobe. is free to download worldwide.

2. Then, must print off of a larger piece of hardware - meaning a laptop -----> not a phone.

VintageBeso specializes in LARGE print.

WHERE do I enter COUPON CODE for discount?

In talking with customers from all around the world, the answer seems to be the same; in that,

1. Coupon Code ENTRY is NOT available on phones

2. but IS AVAILABLE on laptops. :)

Exactly as described and in good condition

My husband's grandma got this pattern in 1978 and several pieces and the instructions had disappeared through all of their Air Force moves. I've inherited it and I'm glad you posted this in your shop so I can fill in the gaps. When I finish the two sets I plan to make I'm sure she will be so happy to see it completed. 😁

This is not a full size pattern. Very small. I can not read instructions and must enlarge pattern before using it. Disappointed. Fortunately not expensive, but not usable for me. I wish description had mentioned how small it was.
