Archive for the ‘handmade toys’ Category

Some time ago I began to knit small soft toys. I made a couple for myself, then some of my friends saw them and asked to make the toys for their kids. Certain colors 🙂 All of my creations have found their homes, they are loved and the kids are taking the toys with them everywhere. All I’ve heard was “you have to open your shop and start selling them!” So, after a while I gave up 🙂 and listed my toys in my Etsy shop. (If you haven’t visited my Etsy shop, please do so! 🙂 – you will have a better idea about what kind of toys am I talking about).

Usually my toys don’t have faces. It was done on purpose. But a few days ago I was watching a movie on my computer and started to fiddle with a piece of felt that I found laying around. The piece became a face. Then I added some “hair” which later became something like…. fire? 🙂



At first, I thought it would make a nice brooch. Then I had an idea: why don’t I try to put a face on almost finished toy? 🙂 What can I say? I like it! Will add more features later.

There you go:


Thank you for taking time and reading my post! Hope to see you here again.
