Soft Toys

Toys for the kids.
Feeling non-verbal non-typal tonight. Fabric balls were for C for Christmas. The Wee Wonderfuls dolls were just finished today. More photos at flickr.

Lovely! I especially love those balls. You did a great job - they are quite tricky to get round and smooth.

Thanks for the link to the Sew News website!

I agree with the other comment on the balls, I tried to make some once and they had a really odd shape, kind of flattened.

OMG, I can't believe you used woodgrain fabric. I swear, I'll probably never use the tiny fat quarter I have. I did offer it to Andrew for his man-cessories, but I looked him in the eyes and said, "I'll use this, but you have to be absolutely sure you'll love this camera case." (glare!) :)

Where do you find that woodgrain fabric? I love it! (and what you did with it!)

Thank you all. The roundness is a bit of smoke-and-mirrors. They change shape a lot. The kids sit on them -- they flatten. I tried to squish them into shape for the photo. You can see the back left one is a little oblong. I also like to super-stuff everything, which could explain the roundness factor.

P.S. Never use the fiber-fill-type stuff that they make for holiday display. It doesn't bounce back like the real stuff.

I agree with everyone else that the balls are incredible. I've made those, too, but I don't think mine were as cute. The super-stuffing does help, though. I love the little gnomey peeking around on the one ball. So cute!

I have got to make some of those balls! They are just adorable, especially the one with the gnome. Good use of scraps. Thanks for the link!

How serendipitous...I was just looking for a ball pattern. Thanks.
