handmade toys - vintage book

I got a pile of 80s magazines for embroidery, knitting and crocheting from my mother in law. Among them was this cute little book about handmade toys. I love it! The photos are really nice: children and little animals, clowns. Most of them should be made from knit remnants, which sounds pretty easy to make, but I´m afraid it´s a bit more difficult than it looks... What I love the most are those mice - of course, they are the ones most difficult to make :). The mice are crocheted with sewn clothes. I can´t knit, so I like a lot that these toys can be made from old sweaters. At least I hope so! Anyway, this book is a great inspiration, and great just to look at :).


  1. These are cuuuuute!
    And funny! "Kanárek Pí", hehe. Sounds like he's a mathematician canary. :-)

  2. Haha, that wouldn´t occur to me! funny :). I want the mouse badly, but it looks so difficult...

  3. Oh - these are so great!
