Toys

I have been working on making some more toys, some amigurumi bears, and blobs.  For the bears, I am using a pattern from Mr. Funky's, Super Crochet Wonderful.  I am not using any beads for eyes or noses, just all crochet.  They are fun to make and all the different parts don't take very long.  The time consuming part is the assembly and trying to sew and stuff the parts, everything but the eyes and ears are stuffed.  

The blobs are my own design.  I have made them out of cotton, and inside they have small bells and a squeaker.  I think of them as a good toy for babies to gnaw and chew, and they can be thrown in the washer, but would air dry best.

What cute little toys! Love the colors you made them with. I should make some. The girls would love that.

Tillamook Mudslide is only the BEST chocolate ice cream with chocolate chunks and a chocolate ripple swirled all in it, made by the Tillamook Creamery in Oregon. I really have to control myself when it's in the house. I'm surprised I don't get up in the middle of the night to eat it. LOL!!!

Just be happy! said...

The blobs are great. They aren't usual toys but they're funny!

I have attempted to make amigurumis but only managed to make an ugly octopus ;-)
