I posted something a while ago about a project that I was excited about working on. I finally got around to bringing it to fruition.
After a little mishap with a mitten I was creating, I decided to make some little toys to go with the book "The Mitten" by Jan Brett. This charming children's book is based on a Ukrainian folk tale about a lost mitten and a group of forest animals finding it and piling inside to keep warm. It was always a favorite, growing up. I'm thinking of giving these little guys away for a baby shower (with the book, of course) or perhaps saving them for my future kids. We'll see. :)
The mitten is crocheted out of a very soft, white yarn (lots of patterns can be found on the internet). The animals are created with oven bake clay (Sculpey) and painted with acrylic paint. I also used mod podge to seal them. The animals are as follows: Bear, Fox, Badger, Owl, Rabbit, Hedgehog, Mole and Mouse.
I'm participating in....
