First Knits Found!

When I was doing a bit of spring tidying (and mostly throwing stuff away and wondering why I had keep it in the first place) I came across a box of Sylvanian animals that my sister and I used to play with. We spent hours, days, weeks, creating games with those little critters and setting up whole cities for them. A big part of those games was making little items for them ourselves, something that I had forgotten about until I opened that box and found these:

Those little flat squares were blankets for my tiny animal toys, and the one on the left is a sleeping bag for a mouse (if I remember correctly there was a school camp for the animals that required ‘equipment’).

I also found a tiny improvised hat!


I am quite proud of my small self for these early craft efforts. And it’s nice to see how far I have come too!
