Well, after the hand claps cushion I made for Father’s day, I couldn’t leave that lovely tweed alone and so I made this little guy for my little guy.

I really love making toys, for some reason it is just so fulfilling, maybe it’s just because this one was made from something old and lovely into something new and sweet.

It’s also fun to make toys as they don’t usually take as long.  You can whip up a dinosaur, zebra or sea otter(!) in an afternoon or evening, so there is an element of instant gratification which can be nice when you are crocheting monster blankets the rest of the time.
