Handmade Toadstool Rattles

I'm so into Toadstools right now & loving my new creation. How neat are these little handmade Toadstools.

Down at the Twospoonfulsofsugar farm, I've been playing with a few of these guys. I don't have a sewing machine though so its a long procedure “handsewing each stitch" - "I am on the look out for a cheap sewing machine, so I can experiment a bit "faster" though.

So...a few of my lovely friends are about to be mummies or are going to be “newbie mummies” and I wanted to give them something special that I have handmade but also relates to babies of course and me and cuteness and smiles. So the idea popped into my head... a Toadstool Rattle would be a very cute idea.

Here are a couple of my finished pieces. They have little bells inside so they go ding, ding, rattle, rattle when they are shaken... I could'nt resist poking them in the garden this afternoon for a quick little photoshoot to share with you all to enjoy and inspire.

It's day 9 - We're off to dee market

We are so looking forward to this Saturday 11th December. As we have been specially invited to attend Billycart Markets "christmas market". Its the "much talked about" specialised handmade for little people aged (0-12years) Markets. Located on the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney at Lakes Parish Hall, 21 Lagoon Street, Narrabeen. Sydney's only 100% handmade market.

This is also going to be our last market before christmas so if your up Narrabeen way and/or at the markets pop by say Hi...and/or pick up some of our christmas products for a fun'n'furry crafty christmas for the kiddies!

As well as having a stand there, I can't wait to get all my christmas shopping done for all those little kiddly -winks in my life too, I think they are going to be extra spoilt to pieces this year.

Wrap-up of the Sydney Children's Festival's Fun'n'Furry workshops

Fun'n' I mentioned in earlier posts these last two weeks I have been having loads of fun running a few fun'n'furry storybook making workshops at the Sydney Children's festival at CarriageWorks. To be honest I think I had just as much fun as the kids did, and....I think a few parents/grandparents enjoyed themselves, just a wee bit too!

My fav part after making the storybooks with the kids, was watching their imaginations kick-in. One of the parents said to me "listen"...I stopped, watched and listened....the room went from laughter and chatter to sudden silence as the kids thinking caps clicked-on as they begun to create their stories and illustrations inside their books.

we had a : mooey, cleo, butterfly, thomas....the list goes on.... and the story writting and illustrations were so very creative in both workshops. Everyone went home with a smile on there faces and I think a wee bit exhausted from an action packed day at the festival. I bet they all (even the parents) slept well that night.

In my case "pictures speak louder than words", so.... here are a few snap shots taken from the fun'n'furry dog and cow storybook workshop!
