BellToy and Bear

September 18, 2009

A snap of my latest craft. Two softies for a friend’s twinset, due in December.

Simple to stitch, stuffed with bamboo fiber (antimicrobial!), and with sound built in: the eensie pillow, the one with the grosgrain pully-things, has a bell buried inside for some special jingle-jangle. Hint: The bell is housed inside a soft plastic cage (yes, it’s supposed to be a cat toy, but whatevs) so the stuffing won’t muffle the ring.

Care to share your own sews?

Small shot: a cast iron bird bell from the co-op to help trick out our tiny deck. Sometimes, I like to sweat the Small stuff.

ps. I couldn’t resist the Scarface reference. Apologies to the bird, and to Al Pacino.
