Freddie the Frog
So, my 10 month old son is always trying to get at the cording for my baskets. I decided to make him a toy with some cording. With Spring Fling Contest for Fabulous Artistic Moms of Etsy and seeing this polka dot green fabric at JoAnn's, I knew that I was destined to make a frog. I think that we will name him Freddie the Frog. His arms and legs are made from cording wrapped with fabric, just like I use for my baskets. I think that I would use a thinner ribbon for the tongue next time! Sometimes you need to take time out to be a mom; so instead of making a basket for my shop this week, I made a toy for the little guy. This week I will be making him an Easter Basket. Stay tuned for photos of his Basket!
