Presenting Tiddliwink Toys on Etsy

I found this darling Etsy Shop and wanted 
to share it with you today!
So please Welcome!

Purple Circus Elephant
This beautiful purple elephant is one of a kind and has been hand stitched with love and care and is awaiting your affection. Take me down to the circus!

The perfect gift for a child, baby or elephant lover.

I have hand stitched her using 100% wool felt (meeting safety standards for children's toys) and stuffed her with wool fleece. The embellishment on her behind was also hand cut by me and carefully stitched in place. She measures 12cm (5") long by 12cm (5") high.

I can make you a custom elephant in another colour. Please see last photo for a selection of elephants I have made in the past. Custom orders will take about a week.

Felt Elephant - PDF sewing pattern
This is not a finished product! It is for the PDF pattern tutorial with template only!

This is a very easy to follow pattern, step by step, with colour photos.

This felt elephant is best made with wool felt and is hand stitched. You will only need basic hand sewing skills. The elephant is made using a blanket stitch and will only take an hour or so to make.

The felt elephant measures 12cm (5") long by 12cm (5") high.

A perfect hand made gift for a baby, child or that special someone.

Made with wool felt and wool stuffing it makes a great Waldorf toy.

As soon as I have payment I will email the pattern to you. No postage charges!!

Please note that you can sew whatever design you like on the rump of your elephant to personalise it. The pattern does not include a template for the flower.

Tyrannosaurus rex epattern

Here he is!! The long awaited Tyrannosaurus rex!! Isn't he terrifying, well maybe if you're 2!

This is an epattern/pdf to make your own T rex. He is hand sewn from felt using blanket stitch and running stitch and takes me about 5 hours to make. He makes a beautiful handmade gift for a little boy or dinosaur lover of any age.

This is a very easy to follow pattern tutorial, step by step, with colour photos.

The finished Tyrannosaurus rex measures 16cm (6.5”) high and 30cm (12”) nose to tail.

For a finished handmade T rex please have a look here:

and for something to sink his teeth into:
This Tyrannosaurus rex is a fun project, however it is slightly more complex than my Stegosaurus and Triceratops, so you might like to try these first.

Please note that this listing is for the pdf/epattern only and does not include any of the materials.

To make Tyrannosaurus rex you will need:
100% wool felt or a wool blend felt;
embroidery cotton to match the felt (and some brown or black for the eyes);
100% wool stuffing or polyfill stuffing;
Two or three small, clean pebbles, weighing about 20g to weigh down the rear end;
a wooden skewer stick to push the stuffing into the feet, legs, arms and head; and
basic sewing equipment; sewing needle, scissors and pins.

I will email your epattern within 24 hours (usually sooner). No postage charges! However, if you would like a printed copy in the mail please convo me to arrange printing and postage charges.

Bluebird Mobile
These little bluebirds will bring happiness to any child's heart.

This beautiful mobile is made to order. Each bluebird is hand stitched, made of wool felt and fastened to the mobile with satin ribbon. The mobile features two bluebirds and three white felt clouds.

Perfect for a baby shower or a new baby.

I will custom make one for you, it'll only take a couple of days. Then mailing from Australia takes about a week overseas.

The mobile contains 2 bluebirds and three white clouds
The bluebird measure about 8cm x 3cm (3"x1")
The cane hoop measures 20cm across (8")
and the total drop of the mobile is 62cm (25").
