Curious little monsters
I had so much fun making my baby elephants I thought I'd revive my SPuNGie pattern. The photos above show the original batch of SPuNGieS (soft interactive sensory toys for babies) I made for Chelsea and her playgroup friends.
These are the newest, updated versions of the designs. I decided to sew the felt of the eyes down as it tended to fray too much when washed. The striped cotton legs were replaced with interesting ribbons and lace. And the ears got a much better crinkle plastic sewn inside. (The first batch were disappointingly un-crinkly!)
