Here are some of my latest hooky projects.
Bunnies on the Hill
Here are four bunnies.
Here is the hillside on which they play.
When they get tired, they go to sleep in their warren.
I made this for Annie’s fourth birthday. The bunnies are based on Lucy Ravenscar’s quick and easy Easter Bunny design. The hillside/warren/bag is my own creation. This toy is great fun in cafes and Medicare waiting rooms. And Annie likes to play with it too.
The Green Sheep
This was a present to a small friend of mine who turned three recently. I’ve always been a major fan of Mem Fox, so it was great to pay tribute/infringe copyright in this way. Also, these sheep are lots of fun to make (although I still haven’t got the hang of embroidering closed eyes); it won’t be long before I’ve hooked up a whole flock. You can find the (excellent) pattern here.
Lately, I’ve been toying with the idea of selling toys like these online. What do you think?
