As my blog is not about BMX bikes or PS3 games there is no chance that my 14 yr old will ever look at it so it’s safe to show you this bit of Christmas crafting pre-Christmas without ruining any surprises!

Charlie saw one of these on display at the Sew Hip stall at The Vintage and Handmade fair and requested one for Christmas. Wow! My boy, teenager, mini man, wants his mum to make him a cute cuddly toy! I had to make that happen despite having the worst cold virus I’ve had in years – this moment may never come again. Any suggestions for a name?
