Earth Toy.....Sun

A happy fleece sun is on its way to Gus. I hope he loves his new gift.

Baby Gifts

I love giving baby gifts that have been personalized. Imagine the excitement of a new parent to open a gift and see the name they took months to decide on embroidered on something for their baby.

When I was a little girl I remember having a doll that was almost my size. I remember she had elastic on her feet that wrapped around my feet so we could both move together. The joy of a big friend that I could always count on made my heart happy.

This was the first plush toy that I made in 2009. Back in the 70's when I was in high school I made lots of these. They were called Gollywogs and I have a pattern in 3 different sizes. I used to sew them and stuff the legs with those styrofoam pellets that go inside bean bag chairs. My mom's house was always a mess with those pellets because they were so light that they would fly everywhere and land in the most unexpected areas. My sister had a friend with a beauty salon and she gave me some shelf space to sell these silly dolls. Fun times.....

Yoga for Kids

My last 6 custom toys were made for Yoga studios for kids. Until two weeks ago I never knew they existed. It is a wonderful option for children, especially those with special needs. The big patch on the back of this star with the company name is a pocket that holds my Daily Whisper Inspirational Messages for Kids.
