This seems the best place for these, although they are decorative rather than toys because of their scrappy nature Cheesy

I was playing with some fabrics and a comment someone made made me think of making these funny scrappy animals. Now I want to make a whole menagerie of them!

I started off making them more realistic (if there is such a thing with these!) but they're gradually becoming more and more stylised Cheesy

Mouse

They are really pretty! I would even use them as Christmas tree decorations, but ok, it's mid July  Wink

Love them all! The corduroy fabric is my favorite part, and makes me want to touch them!

Will you do other animals, like dogs?

I plan to, yes. I want to make a sausage dog (Dachshund) and I think a Bergamasco could be quite funny. Who knows what they'll turn out like though! Cheesy

I'm not sure you'd want too, it's chaos in there! It needs a good sweep out Cheesy

Love these!  Didn't actually read who they were by (too eager for pictures!) and as I was drooling over the pictures I thought, ooh, these remind me of Phizzychick but in fabric! (I've seen a lot of your papercrafts.)
