My first cloth doll

Lovely softie book

I was very excited to receive my copy of Fiona Dalton's new book, "Hop, Skip, Jump".

Hop Skip Jump

This book is fabulous.  I absolutely love it.  Fiona is a such a talented toy maker, and the little outfits she makes for her softies are so clever.


Look at the cute little vest this chap is wearing.  See more in her amazing Flickr stream, or on her blog, Hop, Skip, Jump.

I can't wait to find some time to make up one of the patterns in the book.

But it seems I'm not the only family member who likes to make soft toys.

Henri's softie

This is 6 year old Henri's creation that he made in art.  It made it onto the School Library display wall.

Prep softies

Henri was very proud when I bought my camera into the library especially to photograph it.

I can't wait to receive my copy of Hop Skip Jump. Henri's softie is gorgeous. I am going to try the same activity with my children.



Henri's creation is DIVINE ! Love it ! What a clever boy like his mum !


Hmmm, I'd been stuck for a Christmas present for a certain person - this would be perfect. No, not for myself, although, I wouldn't mind. I already have and love the Poppy doll pattern...
