Toys for babes

For sweet little handmade wooden toys you wouldn’t believe I broke 3 blades on the scroll saw in their creation would you?! All the same I think they will be played with happily, chewed and thrown around by a little one in the near future *smile*

And, I’ve already got a menagerie of other animals ready to emerge shortly 🙂

Otherwise, I am slowly knitting up a donsy of soft cuddly gnomies for little hands to grab, cuddle and hold (using this pattern).

Also, Husband of Mine has requested a viking hat and beard for his birthday (which is, eek! next week) ~ any suggestions on patterns (that are quick!)?

Joining in the fun at Keep Calm Craft On {crafting on} at Frontier Dreams.

Bread Dangles

We’ve been making bread dangles! ‘Bread dangles?’ you say…

We used our cookie cutters to cut some shapes from fresh bread (fresh is best).

Then used a chopstick to poke a hole at the top and bottom of our shapes. We popped our shapes on a rack to dry out overnight.

The next day we painted them using PVA glue mixed with acrylic paint (we used 1:1 ratio). It’s best to try to paint them all over.

We strung ours up on this great branch that Master D collected – don’t they look wonderful!

 And hung them above Little Miss Q’s cot. We love our bread dangles!! 

Happy crafting, Kelly
