Looking forward to seeing your larger teddy. Enjoy your trip to the caravan. Autumn has arrived, the nights are drawing in but at least we've still had some sunshine. I came home from MIL's on Thursday, I'm going back to stay with her tomorrow for another 5 days, it's a bit of a trek between Wiltshire and Ashby!! :))
Sparking a child's imagination can actually change their lives Kathy, so those hand teddy gloves are likely to make a wonderful difference to the children. It has inspired me to think about sewing some simple glove puppets this year!
Yes, a knitting dolly...I haven't heard that term in years...in Canada it's a knitting spool I think, I like knitting dolly better. I used one a lot as a child but could never figure out what to do with the long cord...now I know! Teddy bear scarves!
I think you're right Kathy, most kids don't keep their toys long. I had my teddy bear until I was in my thirties I think. Ditto Larry Lamb until I was in my twenties...did they make them better back then or is it just that kids get bored easier and faster nowadays? I wonder. Regardless, I love the teddy patterns and plan to give one a go very shortly. I too have been studying "how to do faces" diagrams and videos for teddies and dollies. I will get it right first time yet! At the moment it's more like "Nope, that'll scare the child half to death...redo it!" LOL
Hello Kathy, I'm sure with assistence from Mrs P your future teddies will have the most smiley facial features......will you be going to Rebecca's toy making day on 17th Sept? I know Mrs P can't make it as she will be cycling in the Alps on her new bike...think I'd rather be making toys in Leicestershire, far less exhausting!! All the best Louise xx
