Travel Buddies.

Firstly, a belated Happy New Year! Β This year my goal is to do more crafts…This also happens to be the 200th post, plus I’ve finally compiled the galleries (the tabs at the top) of projects I’ve done, for easy reference. I’ve also completed my second university degree, and did some travelling overseas. Yay!

I found these adorable craft kits by My Studio Girl. They are small stuffed toys tucked inside suitcases for children to engage in travel-themed play.

There were three varieties and I made them all :)

First kit - MOUSE and teddy

They are 2D, but pretty cute regardless

I imagine that Mousie is going to Switzerland to eat Swiss cheese!

Where is rabbit going? Maybe the Grimmway Farms in California - the largest carrot plantation in the world.

Where are the largest banana plantations in the world? Monkey may head to Costa Rica, Ecuador, Philippines or Columbia. Lucky Monkey, I haven't been to any of these countries!

I love travelling. Recently I visited a few countries in Eastern Europe, and I can’t get enough! History and architecture interest me the most. And I am always inspired to do travel-related crafts after each trip.

    • Hello! Thank you! I love sewing for kids, they take joy in the smallest things! And I hope the electronic toys and gadgets don’t take over their childhood.
