I love the thought of handmade toys for children. What better way to tell a little one how much they are loved than to make them a special friend or play item. I think Heather Bailey got me started on this. I absolutely love her Happy Stacker pattern. We have this in our booth at shows and it always gets so much attention. We've had our current toy samples for a while so the Chief thought it was time to find some new patterns to freshen up our kids corner! Yes, I'm giving him credit where credit is due. He did the research and was immediately smitten with Freddie's Friends! Perhaps our booth was just a little TOO girly for him and he felt the need to offer some cool friends for the boys! He decided on Lee Lee the Lion and Ronny the Robot. (I added Olive because what booth is complete without an Owl?)
Here are our samples! If you're in Dallas, Texas next weekend, come by and check them out in person at the Dallas Quilt Celebration 2012, March 9-11! We're in Booth 68-69!
