for the little fellas
This Friday my little friend Finn celebrates his first year in this world! Congratulations Finn!
I wanted to make him something special, but I was having a hard time deciding on the perfect thing.
Last Christmas I made Finn a little stripped felted owl, a fast favorite, which soon became his teether.
Yesterday, after a quick stop at the Superstore, I was perusing the latest Viva magazine and came across little organic cotton vegetable teethers.
What a great idea I thought... and why not make them out of wool?
I started with a carrot, similar to the one pictured in the magazine, and moved on to make my own beans and a strawberry. I did a test soaking the berry and freezing it, to help sooth really swollen gums. So far it seems like that theory will work nicely... Finn can be the final judge!
I wanted to take a nice pic to show everyone before the sun went down and we lost the light - I'm just so excited!
Mister however was not impressed with not being the center of attention and promptly stormed my set - such a drama queen.
All my little friends, your teethers are on their way!
