Earlier this week while reading blogs I stumbled across someone making something for The Toy Society. I was instantly hooked and added my name to their list. I have long admired the cute and funky stuffed toys that others make, but hesitated to make any myself because I didn’t know what I would do with them once I made them. So — I have been playing with socks and gloves and bits of fabric and felt and embroidery thread — and I have been having a lot of fun : ) I think there is still a lot of kid inside me that just wants to do something silly and fun and colorful and soft and quirky — and then to say “Hey, look what I made!” You will be hearing more about these new friends of mine — there are lots of them waiting to be created. Then there is the plotting of where to ‘drop’ them — but that is a story for another day. So — what you have been waiting for — pictures of my first group of new friends.
