Whilst there are many adorable hand-crafted toys, I am thrilled to have found something truly original. These quirky and distressed darlings were unearthed from my own pool of talented blog followers
As part of my "follow-your-follower" series, I introduce you to Tasmanian designer Little Black Crow and her wonderful toys (not for children) that are distressed with coffee, tea, sandpaper, feature vintage materials and are sewn on a century old Singer sewing machine.
Each toy is one-of-a-kind and I love that each character has its own life story. Mandy the elephant can be seen busking outside the ferry terminus at Circular Quay in Sydney and is quite the balloon sculptress.
Laura bunny loves to to tell stories. One day while playing with her little bunny friends she told a tremendous tale, how she was orphaned when her parents where killed by a rhinoceros while climbing the Himalayan mountains!
Paul Bear is fashioned in a classic 1920's and 30's bear pattern.
To find out the rest of these toys' incredible stories and to discover more, make sure you visit the Little Arty Crafty Crow Blog.
