I made the following toy for one of my partners in the IYP swap. She had something similar in her wists that reminded her of a toy that she had a child.

So I made her a log.





Waitaminit....what are those buttons for?





Holy guacamole! There are forest creatures inside.  Grin

I crocheted the log and completely winged the pattern. Then, I remembered seeing a wonderful thread on this board on felt creatures so I combined the two. Smiley

I love this project, but the way you posed the creatures and the way their eyes look...they look like they've been up to something, and have been caught!  Grin

I hadn't thought about fungus. I did think about turning the buttons into bugs with a bit of paint but the paint chipped off of my test bug too easily.

Cute!  I love the log itself, and the creatures are awesome.  My favorite beastie is the frog.  Unfortunately, I have the log song from Ren and Stimpy in my head.  noooo!   Tongue

Wow, that is cute!  Then it opened up and I'm sitting here thinking how all those critters fit in that log!  That's crazy!  Its like magic!  I absolutely love the log!  (I, too, started to sing the log song from Ren & Stimpy to myself when I first saw it).  Thanks for sharing!
