I have made these for christmas presents for twin girls who like to carry around little handbags, so thought then these little teddies could go with them. I have made them blankets, pillows and even a hot water bottle, all to fit in an altoid tin (we don't have these here in NZ so I am very lucky to have got some from a swap...)






The teddies are hand sewn and embroidered as are the hot water bottles, however the blankets and pillows are machine sewn.




Here is one before sewn up. They both have sewn hearts on their bottoms...hehehe...



Got the idea off the internet with the mice in the mint tins...we don't get good mint tins like these here in NZ so I was very lucky to get some in a swap so that I could use the tins for this project and give them as gifts to two little girls, I hope they will love them and enjoy playing with them.
