Three mama ducks headed to market next weekend, with their ducklings in their pouch, as my son tells me. I assure him ducks don't carry their young in pouches, but for a kid who has been carried in pouches, slings, wraps and other baby wearing carriers since birth, and has seen his sister carried the same, I guess that's all he knows!
I just have to make sure I keep them away from my daughter, she loves hers to death and clearly has more love to give judging by her excitement at seeing these three finished toys. One lucky duckling spent a good ten minutes being carried to sleep in her arms before I could convince her it probably should go back to it's mother. Then onto the highest shelf in the study.
I sew, knit and crochet and love creating fun, unique clothes for children. Why? Because every child is a little original, their clothing should reflect that!
I am always ferreting around for second-hand vintage and retro fabrics and linen to upcycle, recycle and repurpose and give a new lease on life. Using existing resources is very important to me.
