Toy Soldiers

Here is a new item I've been working on for Shop Handmade. I wasn't going to share them until about Wednesday when I think they'll arrive in Shop, but because I've been super slack with my blogging lately and the fact that I was so excited about how they turned out.....I just had to share.
Toy Soldiers
 This is typically a boy thing but I didn't have a five year old boy to take a picture of it with, instead I used my nine year old daughter. As you can tell from the picture it's kind of huge!!
 They were a lot of fun to make, the yetti on his head was a bit messy to deal with when cutting but once that was done it was easy.
 I always make one to start with, just to make sure I get every thing right and in proportion so I can make changes if needed. Once I have my pattern done it's all systems go.
Did I mention these Toy Soldiers are huge, they stand approximately73cm tall! Perfect for a bit of a cuddle.
 So here are the four boys all lined up on Ryan's bed, look out for them in Shop Handmade mid week.
I hope you are all enjoying the school holidays.
