Hi ,

A little while ago i posted a pic of my completed little blossom by alan dart.

well! Since then i have made another 13.

I decided to make them as part of the party bags for the girls attending my sons 7th birthday party in September.

I can honestly say that i will never do anotherone of these again lol:???:

Regards to you all

Thank you so much Candice.

It took a lot of determination. But i am sure that seeing their little faces at the end of the party will make it all wort it.

Gosh.. if I could sprout wings I would fly across the ocean to the party and play 'susan-the-kangaroo-clown' at the party to get one of those! They are simply terrific. Now THAT is one dedicated mommy doing so many!! :notworthy:

Well nonny for the boys it gets a bit tricky as they do not like cuddly thing like girls do at this age.

So i have again put a childrens filofax, which is made of rubber with paper inserts and dividers.Bubbles , plane, pencil bouncing ball and other litlle bits.

In the girls i put an elephant , a tiara and a wand and bubbles and bracelet.

I thought it would be nice to give them something that will not go in the bin after about an hour.

Those are AMAZING! I, too, can't believe you were able to make so many of them. I can imagine how sick you are of them by now. I know the little girls will be tickled to receive them though. If my kids' friends were only so lucky. HA!

Beautiful job!:yay:

You made 14 of these? And the accessories and clothing? :notworthy: I. would. die.

I hope you're keeping one for yourself. Selling the pattern?

ritaw
08-19-2007, 02:33 PM
Well now i am begining to blush .

I think it would be an idea to sell them on ebay but i am all worn out on them at the moment.

It does get a bit tedious doing the same thing over and over.

MAybe in a while:cheering:

You did a wonderful job on making all the elephants! I'm sure it will be a big hit with the children ~ who wouldn't want one! (I'm feeling guilty, you made 14 elephants and I still have to finish seaming Harry - so many pieces...)
