While the crafty Mamas forum was out of action I was quite busy. It's amazing what I can achieve when I have no distractions :) Here are some lovely little chickens - I made four - they are so cute and they fit into the palm of my hand. They each have a little stuffed heart in their front pocket. I got the pattern from here. It is so cute and very easy to whip up. I thought they might be good for kids as they are small enough to put in pockets. Thinking of putting a little note in each pocket too. What do you think? Sort of treat these little chickens like they're "worry dolls" - a little friend for the kids to talk to.
I also made a few sock creatures. The grey, stripey one was from bits of sock left over so he was just made up with what was left. Mr O did the eye placement and mouth placement - he loves it and I think is a bit sad that he is going. The black one was just a design I'd wanted to try. He was going to be a cyclops but DH thought he looked funny with only one eye. I am thinking of doing adoption certificates or info/care booklets to go with them - this is what I did for my nieces/nephews ones. Do you think that would be alright?
Here's the black one - what do you think I should call him? I'm stumped on this one.
and here's the grey one
Stripey McStumpyton? Ideas?
Thanks for looking!
