Nov 19, 2010 | Blog, NEW Toy Patterns

I am sooooooooooooooooo excited about this cute little critter that is ‘on the cards’ … who is hopefully going to arrive, JUST in time for Christmas… I can barely wait to show him off… but I still have to get the pattern onto the computer, so it’s going to have to be a quick teaser ONLY this morning!!!!

I hadn’t planned to make a new toy pattern ’til after the festive season, and I shouldn’t have even been in the fabric shop BUT I found this amazing pack of Christmas fabrics…

…and just couldn’t hold back! : )

Christmas fabric


Then in the next aisle I found this glorious Christmas ribbon,

and my mind started racing,

thinking of all the Christmassy toy patterns I could make…

…I have some safety eyes..

(I even think they’re a mistletoe green!)

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH, I am getting excited!!!

… and here is the sneak peek…


I wonder who will be able to guess what I’m making for Christmas???

Right! I’d Better get back to it… gotto get it done ASAP!!!

Bye for now,

    A gingerbread house, a snowman, or a Christmas tree?

  2. Alexis

    Where can I buy the safety eyes?? I’ve looked everywhere in my city and I can’t find anything easily online either… do you know of an online place I could order them from (or I would order them from you if possible!!)
    Thanks!! 😀
