child's play

I could not help but be inspired by a new challenge blog I came across- its so new that they are on their first challenge- and looking for a design team as well- the idea behind the blog is to be inspired by toys- when I saw what the first toy was- I just had to take part- it's this rattle toy- Stanley had one of them for his first Christmas ( he's nine now) so I had to print out a picture of him with the toy to use on the LO- here is the toy- and here is the blog- Child's play challenges
This is the LO I made- I used the idea of the balls connected by lines and surrounded my picture with circles and buttons linked by string and dotted lines of fake stitching


  1. oh my goodness Karen this is absolutely adorable! How sweet that this was your son's first toy and you even have the picture! Such a clever design, I love it!! Thanks for playing along at Child’s Play Challenges =) Tiffany

  2. Super cute design. Had to come and take a peek at yours after I saw your comment on the challenge. Please feel free to stop by mine if you get a chance. Haven
