4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / The Toy Society - softies spreading love around the world on: October 22, 2008 05:41:43 AM
A little while ago I started a street art project called The Toy Society and I thought you might be interested in getting involved.



The Toy Society spreads love by leaving ('dropping') handmade soft toys about the place. The project started in Melbourne, Australia and with the help of Whip Up (www.whipup.org) and craft zine (www.craftzine.com) it's slowly spreading around the world - The Netherlands, France, Canada, USA with more in the works.




People who come across the toys are invited to take them home and make them theirs. Simple as that, something for nothing. The project is documented at the blog (www.thetoysociety.b logspot.com) and finders are encouraged to send in the story of how they found their toy.



Everyone is invited to join in and be part of The Toy Society, no matter how experienced you are at making toys. You can make a toy and send it in to be dropped or you can make your own toy and drop it and be featured on the blog. If you'd like to be part of The Toy Society, drop by the blog (www.thetoysociety.b logspot.com) and leave a comment or email thetoysociety@gmail.com.

Thanks!

This is my first proper go at patchwork/quilting and I'm pretty impressed with myself! It's squaralicious!



I started with the most beautiful Japanese fabrics



Despite my usual antics I even managed to sit myself down and cut the squares properly using all the proper tools. (I'm usually way too impatient for such crazy things like following the rules).



Somehow though, despite many minutes of concentration on laying the squares out to ensure no two adjoining squares were the same fabric I still managed to get 2 cases of repeat fabrics next to each other, but oh well.

Blogged about here:

Thanks! I heart IKEA but only go there every so often cause it's totally nuts in there.  Thanks ax174 for the link to the IKEA hacker blog, I've heard loads about it but never  dropped by to see it for myself. No progress on the skirt yet but was thinking about it this afternoon...

Here's a couple of simple cushion covers I whipped up using some Ikea fabrics. The fabric is great to work with. I just used a simple envelope style, no pattern just cut and sewed.



And this is some of the other Ikea fabric I picked up



The black and white fabric is in line for a A-line new skirt.

Thanks again everyone! I loved the fact that I got so much out of my $3 curtain too. And I'm an Aussie so my $3 curtain is even cheaper for all you thrifters in the USA and Europe, so even better!

i love your items i love the little wallet pouch the most.......I have a question for you ...is that your label on the wallet if so did you have them made and if so locally or can you recomend a online place?

Sheva, yep that's my label on my wallet (SadieandLance) I got them at an online Aussie label place http://www.wovenlabelsdirect.com.au/ I'm pretty sure they ship around the world, you might just need to email and ask them. They are really reasonabley priced too.

ooo thanks everyone! You know I still have quite a bit of the fabric left too, they were huge curtains! I always loved the curtains when I used them as actual curtains.

Blonenomore - yep I used a pattern for the skirt - it was Kwik Sew 2783 , I changed it slightly but it's a great basic skirt pattern.
