Toy Society drop two and three


a while a go i was lucky enough to win a make your own stupid sock creatures box kit from Homespun.
very cool, because not something i would have bought myself - but a good thing to try!

so anyhoo, this is the finished product!  I named him Stripy

he is a bit too fragile for my kids or for their mates, so thought Stripy would be a good Toy Society drop.  This is him packaged up and ready to go

and as per my Toy Society project mentioned earlier, I am only dropping around our local council area of Playford.  Here is Stripy ready to be found and loved!

ages and ages ago, i started making Hilda the Hippo of Melly and Me.  yesterday, i finally finished her!   here she is in all her glory!

and again, i thought she would make a good Toy Society drop - something a bit different.  I couldn't find a clear bag big enough to fit her - so this is her ready to go!

and because it was a bit rainy out here yesterday, i had to find somewhere undercover for her, seeing as she was unprotected!  so this is her out the front of the local swimming pool.

hopefully, they both find good homes and someone to love them!

hope you have had a fun crafty few days too
many pugs and kisses
