Vinny...I have to ask (but I know that sometimes it's hard to give away our secrets).....Did you make that adorable bag out of a child's cloth picture book? I LOVE it!!! So clever!
it's one of my childrens toys they've grown out of. it got a good wash and then unpicked, the pages were matched up so that each bag was it's own rhyme,eg "duck sheep cow and pig... go into the field to dig". i think that knottydotties bag has a squeaker in it, one had a rattle, another a mirror. then just sewed it together with a lovely red lining and added a handle.
knottydottie - i'm glad you like the hat, and it's good to know another kid will enjoy this toy! recycling is so satisfying.
