Handmade Gifts: for I-guy

My I-guy is kinda hard to give gifts too, because he really doesn’t need much. He will very happily play by himself, with whatever he finds, for long periods of time. He is so different from my first guy. I finally decided on felt food which ended up being perfect for him and it goes perfectly with the play dish set that Grandma C gave him. The colorful dish set is Austrian made and fits his cute little hands just right.

To kinda go with the felt food are these little sock puppets made from two odd socks. I had to make these because whenever I-guy would find a stray sock (dirty or clean) he would shove his arm in and play puppet. Now he has two (one to share with his brother) whom he named Roxy and Ruby, complete with eyes nose and mouth. Maybe now, he’ll leave the stray socks alone.

Roxy and Ruby love feasting on salad with carrots and tomatoes, pancakes, mandarin oranges and an assortment of yummy cookies. I already have special requests to make strawberries, cherries and watermelon.

    Oh, Regina, I seriously think we have the same kids, just different genders. My two are just like yours, the “baby” can play forever by herself while the first one needs much more social interaction. The felt food looks completely wonderful. Are those pancakes? And that salad! Looks like R & R are having quite the buffet. Lucky them, lucky E & I!

    Oh, that food is just too precious! I have got to make some of that for my girls to replace the plastic “junk food” that they got from well-intentioned relatives.

    These are just so wonderful! My mom used to make us puppet mittens (my favorite were the skunk ones!) – so seeing these sock puppets brings back some great memories. Hmmm – wonder if she still has that pattern somewhere?

    What a great gift! My mom made us a sock puppet when we were kids. It’s name was Maynard and I still remember thinking it was SO COOL! What a perfect gift for your independent guy!

    Happy New Year!
