I have been thinking a lot about toys made like this. So far I have only made two, a cow and a frog, but I have patterns drawn up for a heap of others. I am planning to make little clothes for them so I am sorry to say they are naked. They are made with polar fleece which is one of my favourite materials to work with when making toys. This little cow was the first. She was inspired by a painting I did a long time ago. I always liked the way her head turned out, so the head is the main feature.
This little froggy was the second. Because, well, I like frogs and I had a good green.
I did finish another crocheted animal - ta da! My little grey elephant. I am not sure about his eyes. I think they give him a funny look. What do you think?
And this is Pigwidgeon (from Harry Potter). I am a HP fan and I have been thinking HP party for July as the next movie and last book will be released then. I am making a Daily Prophet with lots of good ideas of things to make in it to give to friends to inspire them. I designed this little owl especially for it so they can all make one if wanted. He is so cute and very easy to make, so hopefully if I get around to having a party I will see many different versions.
