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.

❤️What HARDWARE - Most are able to download to their smartphones but it all depends on your own personal hardware. Obviously, I have no control over your hardware that you are trying to download on but after years of talking to customers the recommendation is to go bigger; for example, not able to download on your smartphone? Then try an iPad, etc., in the end the good 'ole laptop always works.

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.*

Everything was PERFECT. my sister made 3 sets of this nativity pattern in 1975 and we have since looked all over the globe for the same pattern. THANKS SO MUCH FOR POSTING IT. She was absolutely EXSTATIC to have it again. Thanks so much.

Interesting pattern, if a bit challenging! Thank you.

I've been making this particular pattern for over 15 years. It came from a friend's "take" on it. I've always searched for the original pattern and voila here it is! Thank you. It's perfect.

Thank you! Reminds me of a childhood nativity my mom made!
