Fiber Friday: BABIES!

We’ve got babies on the brain in my family these days, and no – i am not expecting. My sister had her little bundle of joy last week and named him Logan, which means i shall henceforth be calling him “Wolverine” (dorky x-men reference). Little Wolverine is already stylish and settling in nicely. My mama is up on her first Grandma visit and reports that he’s a “good baby” and my sister is rockin’ her new role of mama.

Doesn’t he look swell in his first Auntie-made hat? I think so, and i can’t wait to knit him more cute garments as he grows and supply him with an arsenal of handcrafted felt toys (whether he wants them or not!)

Speaking of baby toys: i’m developing a new line “For Small Hands” at my Etsy shop and would like a few more babies and toddlers to use as my test subjects. Are you a mama, dadda, auntie or granny? Leave me a comment to nominate yourself to test out and review a felted (quasi Waldorf inspired) toy for the beloved babe in your life. I’ll choose 1 to three lucky readers to send a toy to keep in exchange for some nice photos of the babe in question playing with my toy, and a brief review on his/her opinion of the thing.

And continuing to speak of baby related items: this week’s featured Fiber Friend is actually 2 friends in one! Two Welsh Corgis spin round and round after a tennis ball and baseball in an eternal game of not-quite-fetch. This mobile is perfect for the Corgi lovin’ family (gotta get that obsession going early!) and is sure to please parents and kiddos alike. Held into the air with hearts, these two Pemmies are full of love and can’t wait to stand guard over your crib.

That little red/white girl made my audibly giggle repeatedly as i finished up her details. So cute. I may not be able to sell these guys, after all. ;)

So, comment away baby lovers! I can’t wait to send you a special handmade toy for your bairn to test out. Please comment with your location (city/state) and an idea for an interesting critter to feature on my next mobile.

  1. Fern and I are ready to be test subjects. Plus she is very photogenic! (http://fernsd2012.tumblr.com) And she’s just arrived at the point where anything she can grasp goes in her mouth! I’d even give you a little shout out on ye old blog. For now I’ll just heighten my competition and put it up on my facebook page.

    • haha: rad. Not competition: networking! I’d love for you and Fern to test something out. (love that name: love love it!). What sort of animal or plant do you think would be sweet? i’m only going to do things found in nature, so little animals or vegetables, fruits etc. Or just colorful balls with bells inside!

    I would love for my son to be a tester. He’s an active toddler at 19 months. We’re in Tx.
    Lately Jett’s been in love with horses. Jaw dropping, pointing, all that. I think it would be a very cute mobile and for little bitties to have horses raising around overhead.
    Congrats on your nephew! I love the name Logan. It’s on my little boy/girl name list. I’m not having another just yet but that sweet little fellow makes it so tempting.

  3. We would LOVE to bet testers! My little Eleanor is almost 1 and a big fan of the felted bird mobile a very talented friend knit for her. She tries to get her hands on those birds every day, so I know she’d love to try out a little toy.
    You can see a picture of her and the mobile here

    and more recent pictures of her on my blog.
    Sweet giveaway, and all the best luck to you in your venture!

  4. Lily (20 months) and I would love to test out your new friends! We think you should make some chickens :) We just got our first chickens and she calls them “coo coo”. Too cute.
