First Toy Society Drop - Pickle

Having discovered The Toy Society last week, at the weekend I made this little chap:

Pickle 1 Toy Society

While he was being made, I named him Pickle. He sat on the bookcase for a couple of days, and I knew that if he was going to be dropped somewhere, I had to do it soon, before I got too attached.

This morning, I packed him into a bag, with a note and a tag inviting people to take him. I left for work a bit early, and hung him outside a local school, waiting for a small person to find him on their way in:

Pickle 2 Toy Society

Although the pavement was empty and the roads quite quiet at 8:10 when I was hanging him there, I felt quite nervous, but excited. I hope he makes someone's Monday.

If you want to be part of it, just check out The Toy Society blog, and join to get all the info :)

Edit: My drop is now up on the blog here

Heather, what a wonderful idea! I'm no good at making toys but this "movement" is inspiring me to be brave and give it a go. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Jace, yes, do give it a go. I can try to do a little step by step on how I do mine over the next couple of weeks if you like?

Also, hereis my wist tags of toy/stuffie tutes, and Softie Making is a great site.

I've never tried making a toy before, and the links you provided are absolutely helpful. Thanks! :D I think I may try to make an amigurumi. :) We'll see what happens.
