The Doll and Toy Hospital

Inspired by a couple of days at home feeling ill ( the sort of ill where you are still perfectly fine to play as soon as you fell you have missed the school drop off time) , a little doll and toy hospital was made and it was so cute I had to get some pictures as a great idea for afternoon crafting and pretend play the she came up with all by herself…

Action Man Recycled

Recycling gives me a feeling of smug satisfaction. I can trace this all the way back to when I used to collect empty packets to take to the playgroup for junk modelling. For years I was a keen customer of Charity Shops and kept coming across old Action Man figures in their toy boxes. Put those two together, and what have you got? Remember those awful Barbie type figures with a spare toilet roll underneath their skirts? Well, I decided to use an Action Man figure instead, and knit an outfit to cover him. The results are below – of course I had to cut their legs off first!
