F is for Frog

And Finn.

Finn is not a frog, but is a little friend of ours who just turned 1~ Yay!  We went to his party and had a mighty fine time watching him be thrown into a cake for the first time. First sugar rush is always good entertainment.

I made him this little rice filled frog.  His arms & legs are actually filled with polyfill and the body with rice.   He’s fun to toss around.

I also freezer stencilled three little t-shirts for him.  The last time Finn came over, he was wearing what his mom disapprovingly called a clown outfit.  Dad’s choice.  So the tees are to help Finn’s daddy make easy and wiser choices.   Finn’s dad is in watershed management, hence the H2O T-shirt.

We stuffed all the goodies in this little appliqued canvas tote.

    I thought F was for Fake Believe?! Now you’re just confusing me… :0) Just kidding, those are the cutest gifts, the frog prince is my favorite, I think. Such a great job of getting the vibrant color on a black shirt!

  4. what great gifts. Do you have a pattern for mr. frog? I love him. And that H2O shirt is sweet.

    Great gifts! I LOVE the H2O onesie, that is so darn cute. The frog is great, too. I used to make something similar to sell back home in Canada. 🙂

    Very cute!

    I’ve used rice as a filling before (we had no beans, but always rice, haha). This was long ago and it was for a decorative doll. I’ve recently been thinking about using it again (hence the Google search), but I’ve been wondering about washing these items. Won’t the rice expand, get sticky, etc.? Is spot-cleaning the only advisable method of washing or is there something that can be done to prevent the rice expanding/making contact with the water?

    Thanks! And, again, very cute!
