Make your own traditional toy

Last week I mentioned I have discovered some lovely new toy making kits for Cottontails.

Emily's Ark
, a small company based in Northumberland, design and assemble toy making kits which include everything you need to create your own beautiful soft toy animal (including some truly gorgeous mohair fur).

I have ordered the kits for George the rabbit (or is he a hare? I'm not sure - what do you think?), William the bear and Archie the Aardvark. They should be arriving at Cottontails soon and will sell for about £30.

I plan to have a go at making one up myself (so if I never mention this again, you can assume I have created a dog's dinner...)

Ah Catherine - I'll probably be coming to you for a few pointers... Goodness knows how I'll cope with joints etc.. But I am assured the kit is suitable for beginners like me, so fingers crossed I won't create something so awful that it'll put people off!!
