The Toy Society

I've read the blog about The Toy Society for a while but didn't really think about doing a drop myself until I sorted out my craft room and realised just how much stuff I have! A good way to use up my stash and also brighten up someone's day would be too make something and drop it in the name of The Toy Society. So that's what I have started doing! I started off with these felt offcuts from the scrapstore.


They immediately suggested softie to me when I spotted them! Normally you get very small pieces of felt as offcuts so I was thrilled when I spotted these. And then *magically* they turned into this little guy.

And here's a close up of his eyes and buttons - I think he secretly wants to be robot!


So the first stage has been done and the toy made - the next stage is the drop which will take place this weekend :)

Love this idea, have to confess I hadn't heard of The Toy Society before but it reminds me of the Book Crossing. Can't wait to hear about the drop and hope whoever finds your cute little friend let's them know :)

PS New bathroom looks fab!
