Create your family’s Easter with your talents, skill and love to make original Easter gifts that last longer than the chocolate.

Excellent, easy, durable low-cost items to raise funds for your causes.

The unique woven spherical construction

means these toys are hollow

and very easy for tiny fingers to grasp. They

are easily pulled open to insert all

types of gifts and after removing the

gifts they bounce back into spheres.

All items are entirely knitted in DK

These are designed to be toys to be loved and played with by tiny hands. Therefore

they do not include glue, cardboard, wire,

or any choking hazards.

They can be made from left over yarn and will be totally

machine washable and provide absolutely safe

fun for all ages.

Most knitters want to knit, not sew or faff around with glue

or buy expensive glass eyes and buttons.

Therefore, all parts can be

knitted, usually from left over yarn you already have.

The pattern is quite simple and easy to follow and I am happy

to give guidance and help. I am always at the end of an email.

If you are a beginner/basic knitter don’t look at

the picture and think ‘I can’t do that’ -

I bet you can with support from me.

I don’t do ‘difficult’ either.

For those of you who knit for profit, or particularly

fund raising, you are absolutely welcome to sell

your knits wherever you please with my blessing.

I am so thrilled that some of you are using my designs

to help raise funds for homeless children in

shelters and other worthy childrens causes.

The pattern itself however is my copyrighted

design and may not be reproduced in any other form.
