I was thinking about doing about 12 different little Easter toys to post on my etsy store. I looked up this years spring colors that are in style to base my color designs on them. They are mostly warm tones with a few cool tones, but definitely colors with grey mixed in them. Tones are my favorite!
When I was in the grocery store with my daughter they had cute little Valentines Day stuffed animals in the floral section of the store. She particularly liked a giraffe that had hearts at the top of it's horns. The tail and mane was made of the generic fiber that is stringy and she quickly learned how to start pulling it out. Not a great toy for kids her age. I decided I am going to make her a crochet one that will be more durable.
After I am done with my first Easter toy for my store I am going to work on a toy for my friend's child. His birthday party is on February 7th so I still have about a week and a half to go. I plan on making him Ana Paula Rimoli's airplane using her pattern from
Amigurumi Two!: Crocheted Toys for Me and You and Baby Too by Ana Paula Rimoli.
