Baby Bear!

December was quiet, so I had time to make up a few of the patterns I had not completed before then!

One of those completed was Baby Bear.... Quite the cutie I think!


This bear would be a perfect gift for a little girl...


But another colour overall could easily be made...

Like this! 😊


---------------------------------



Or Bear could be unclothed - some people like them just the way you find them in the wild.....

Monkey mania...

My orders come for all different occasions, and that makes it more interesting for me, as I work with my customer to create...

the perfect gift!


In mid-2016 I was contacted by a very excited grandma to be, who was looking for a present that was different to the ones you can easily pick up in your average shopping centre..

So what do you think about this?

For a present that will last a childhood =)


 

Aren't those fingers and toes gorgeous?


And look at that LONG tail!


Looks like he is about to jump up and swing through the trees ;)


Now, before you contact me and try to order your very own monkey....
This monkey caused me a bit of hair-pulling and even a few tears, so I won't be taking orders for this monkey for a while longer....

A rattling great gift idea

I was delighted to discover that Lorraine Pistorio at Rainebo Designs had rattles!

This means I can have three different kinds of gifts, for those who have different needs and budgets.

Look at this cute elephant ring rattle!


The flower barbell is just lovely...



And a bee! Those bright colours are sure to grab the attention of any baby!


The pattern suggested that the smily rainbow rattle could be velcroed at each end...


But stitching end to end makes it perfect for little hands to hold without fussing over velcro =)


I LOVE those bright colours!

-----*********-----

I sold the above pictured rattles to my sister for use in her business - feel free to pop over and check it out through the link below =)

Just love this....

I don't always get photos of my toys in their forever homes, but this one is really cute, so just had to share =)


That is a large bunny and a month old bub - almost the same size! 💓

Ballerina Bunny


One of the more popular bunnies has been my variation on the small bunny. I adventurously made up a pattern for skirt, and are now having fun from time to time changing the colours used to create gorgeous friends for girls...


My first was this little girl, bought as a Christmas present for Lucy! I do hope Lucy loves her little bunny! =) 


Then I was asked to make another ballerina for a 3 year old girl who LOVES ballet...


Another perfect Christmas present I hope! =)


Next I needed to give a present myself to a young girl as a going away present...


She is loved to bits, and my little friend has no chance of forgetting me ;)



I am sure there will be more ballerinas... And maybe we can do different skirts =)

Ella the elephant

I have more than one pattern from the lovely Lorraine Pistorio at Rainbo Designs that I am itching to make =) 

And finally in October I got around to making Ella - she is a really cutie - just check out those ears!!!!



I hope to make more of those "as yet to be made by me" patterns soon 
-
 keep your eye out, you may see one that fits someone you know!
