People keep asking me to design and weave baby toys……….. so…….
Every day of the last week, I have been obsessively weaving one octopus after another. Why?
Well, because I’ve been contemplating how to weave toys that are appealing to and for babies.
My checklist for the baby toys:
No beads or buttons, only embroidered embellishments
Lots of opportunities to hold onto the toy, and to hang it up from strollers if wanted, and to connect other toys to it.
The answer: OCTOPUS!
An occupation of octopuzzzzzzzzzz in my studio!
Tottie Tomato is somewhat confused by my sudden obsession with oceanic friends.
She sought out a little advice from her friend, Albert Einstein.
He reassured Tottie Tomato that all the mermaids in the studio will be sure to keep the octopuzzzzzzzzzzzz under control.
Besides, they are only in residence temporarily, until they are adopted, and, it’s a well known fact that octopuzzzzzzz don’t eat little Tomato people.
PS: if you are feeling inspired to weave an octopus or two, too, I used my pattern in WEAVAGARUMI
