I finished up another sleepy baby for my second Toy Society drop last night, just in time to meet my "one drop a month" goal. This little guy is inspired by local favorite, Paul Bunyan. The old book I have said that baby Paul was 15 feet long at one month old, but this guy is quite a bit smaller than that.
He's made from a wool buffalo plaid shirt and is stuffed with lavender and wool locks.
His best pal Babe the blue ox is tucked under his arm.
I'll take him tomorrow to a local park and hope that whoever finds him loves him. It makes me happy to imagine some little one discovering the toy and being filled with excitement. I know it's just as likely that some unruly teenagers could find it and use it as a football. In either case, I hope it's enjoyed.
My daughter was a little bummed that she didn't get to keep the sleepy baby so I made her a teeny one this morning that she could keep. She's curled up on the couch with him as I write this post.
I hope your week starts off with the thrill of discovery and happiness too.
