1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Chomp Chomp... Two hungry alligators and a horse. on: September 21, 2008 09:21:41 PM
Thanks BethieB and Yoopidu!

They are totally addictive...  I've been making toys non-stop since these, enough that I think I've made the money I would have spent on the toys I've made so far cancel out the cost of the scroll saw.  I mean, the bus and car would have been 8-15$ depending on where I bought them and the animals about the same...  I still have to make some milk paint and finish them all but that is planned for this weekend. http://callmekelly.blogspot.com/ See, tons of stuff really fast, there is no real learning curve if you can sew, you can scroll- at least simple shapes are easy!
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Chomp Chomp... Two hungry alligators and a horse. on: September 12, 2008 09:16:02 PM






I was inspired by http://www.make-baby-stuff.com/index.html, some posters on http://www.mothering.com/discussions/ and the fabulously talented wood toy makers on etsy, namely woodmouse and woodchesters (not sure legality of including their names so I didn't link, I'll be back to edit later after checking the rules as I remember reading something about not mentioning etsy here) to get off my duff and make my two boys some toys. 

The alligators were made with a scroll saw using a pattern found here: http://www.freewoodpuzzles.com/freepuzzles.html I just didn't cut them into puzzles as my boys wanted some animals to play with.   The one with the wonky leg was made in a hurry, got a bit ahead of myself.  They are painted with a light wash of watercoloring until I can get some milk paint.

The horse was free handed.   

I am so glad we bought a scroll saw...  it is easier than sewing and I'll never buy a wood toy again.    OOoohhh... and they smell so good!

You and the TV cozy crafter should hang out...  (visions of an entire room filled with the coziest bits and pieces on earth)  Luv your pencil cozy!

I don't really get the irony but it really is a work of art, beautiful!

Great!  The irony is obvious and perfect!
