I guess I will go ahead and start it now, for the weekend.
Ok, for the next week(Saturday 03/09/13-Saturday 03/16/13)

Make a toy using fabric scraps! Could be a block, a rattle, stuffed animal, etc.
Post pictures! The first person to post finished pictures gets to pick what we make next week!



You can be as specific as you want when you pick, i.e. you can say "make a toy" or you can link a pin/idea and say "make this exactly".

I'm going to change the title and update the first post now. Good luck and thanks for playing along!

edit:
There are probably better ways to decide who picks next. If anyone has any ideas then post them here!

OH, I'll play! I just added a teddy bear tutorial to my to-do list. I want to make him for my son's Easter.

I got some time to sew this afternoon & have his head done! So cute! I'm hoping to finish sewing this weekend, but I don't have any polyfil so I can't stuff him.

Mine is going to be huge....not sure if its because I'm using wool scraps or if my seam allowance was too big or if my PC printed the pattern too large, but his head alone is like 8" tall!

Its okay, bc my little one is highly allergic to everything EXCEPT wool, so he doesn't have many loveys, I'm hoping he really takes to the bear.

I've already made the marble maze thing, I can post a picture if anyone wants to see it. And I made a baby toy out of a frosting container, ribbon, beads, and a bell.

I'm thinking about making one of those baby grab ball things next, but idk if it is out of my league lol
Those stuffed block toys are freaking adorable! I want to make the chick and Penguin! I think I can figure it out without buying the pattern

I want to make a topsy turvey doll. (You know where if you flip the doll over ... it's a different doll.) I always wanted one as a kid.

Work-in-Progress picture

(he's stuffed with fleece scraps in the picture)

100% wool upcycled scraps for my highly allergic 18 month old....he'll be an Easter gift....

He still needs eyes & polyfil....and to dry...because I tossed him in the woolie wash last night.

ETA: 5:50--he's done!





He's 16" tall when sitting & 23" tall from ears to toes.
