Yes here we are at another Wednesday exposure of our crafty spaces. I've had a busy week with customers sewing this week and in between I have been making toys in readiness for the new puppy Milly. Shop bought ones can prove rather expensive and don't always last very long so I did some searching for toys that could be made safely for puppies. Aparantly fleece is a safe material and I found a few ideas on Pinterest using fleece so I found the fleece I had in store and made a start...
As you can see I do have rather a lot of fleece in store but it's either green or black and white....I'm sure Milly wont mind. :-)
I've used the fleece double so it takes a little longer to demolish and she now has her first cuddly toy.....I plan to make a little frog one too after all what else would I make with the green? :-)
I found a link to make fleece tug of war toys using knots.....they looked simple enough to make but you should have seen the knots I got into before I worked out how to do it. :-) I'm sure she will have many happy hours pulling me around the kitchen with these.
The other thing I am sharing today is something I found a link to on Facebook. I always rip the ball bands off yarn when I use them so if there is any left it just goes into my yarn stash. At a later date I then struggle to remember what ply the yarn is to use again. Here is a link to a useful page to show us how to tell what ply it is. I wanted it stored on my blog for me but thought it might come in handy for others too. :-)
That's all from me for today folks. There are still some blogs I haven't manage to leave messages on and for that I'm sorry but I will keep trying my best.
If you are wanting to swap ATCs with me for the WOYWW anniversary don't forget to please send me your details to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add your name to my ATC swap post.
Have a great week.
