This 2nd edition of Pretty Little Things is all about creating the most delightful toys that will undoubtedly put a smile on any child's face. From energetic little ones to crafting grown ups, a handmade toy can bring out the inner child in all of us, filling us with excitement and joy! A fun and brightly-coloured toy can truly captivate the hearts of adults and children, and even teach us to share, collaborate, and work together. In Pretty Little things, we showcase 3 patterns all made using different handicrafts.
Our first pattern is the adorable crocheted Mr. Dino designed by Nienke Jongstra. Made with Scheepjes Catona, this cute Brachiosaurus is particularly suitable for babies as the mercerised cotton yarn offers bold colours, strength and durability. This toy is also the perfect partner for toddler mini adventures, thanks to the handy hand holding opening in the body. Add a fun squeaker inside the toy to stimulate your child’s senses even more!
Do you prefer knitting? Then look no further as this issue also contains a fun pattern to satisfy your knitty needs. The Build Your Name Blocks designed by Michelle Oonincx and made with Scheepjes Colour Crafter, can be personalised by stitching letters onto these cheerful blocks! These toys are cute room decorations that will be a hit with children and adults alike!
The third pattern in this issue is the vibrant Toddler Fidget Book, designed by Elizabeth Barraclough. The bright colours and fun details of this sewing project will give endless hours of exploring hands and fingers. This book includes movable beads, a variety of textures, a pull zipper, button sliders and so much more! To create the special Toddler Fidget Book, you’ll need a Tissu de Marie fat quarter bundle and various haberdashery items such as silicon beads, buttons, ribbons and a zipper. This project allows for endless personalisation by selecting colours and child friendly materials that appeal to your child.
Patterns are presented in a booklet format.
