National Tell a Fairy Tale Day

fairy tales

When I was a little girl, Saturday nights at our home were story time. We would take turns picking our favorite stories, and my dad would read them to us. We had a bookshelf in the living room with collections of stories from various authors. My favorite story (and the one I always picked) was a Grimm tale called One Eye, Two Eye, Three Eye. The story was similar to Cinderella in that One Eye and Three Eye were the mean sisters who treated Two Eye badly. They considered themselves special because one had one eye in the center of her forehead, and the other had a third eye in the center of her forehead. They considered Two Eye common, like other folk, and had no use for her. One day an old woman came to Two Eye when she was crying with hunger and told her how to get her goat to lay out a table of food for her.  I won’t spoil the rest of the story for you, but you can read it here:,was%20also%20in%20the%20centre%20of%20her%20forehead.

Many of the best fairy tales feature a witch – Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Hansel & Gretel, Rapunzel, and many more. If your little one is partial to the witch in the story, this is a great doll to make for them.Topsy-Turvy Witch Doll Crochet Pattern

Of course, another favorite fairy tale character is the Unicorn.

Your little one can be a unicorn when you crochet this adorable hoodie,

complete with “hooves” that serve as mittens attached to the sleeves.

Another favorite author from my childhood is Hans Christian Anderson

(especially the movie with Danny Kaye). Have you read the story, The Ugly Duckling?

This baby bird plushie pattern would make a great ugly duckling.
