Hope that helps. Hers were not nearly as well made as yours. Just same concept.
Thanks for sharing that! I definitely understand the frustration when a toy isn't what you expected. I think you would find that a Hide & Squeak bag meets your needs a bit better:
  • Right now, the smallest size I make is approximately 4x6 (cut size, varies when finished due to charm size/fabric). They are big enough to handle easily but small enough to fit in a diaper bag. My daughter uses hers as a doll pillow sometimes, too The largest size I've made was 7x10; it was large enough to be a travel pillow for a toddler!
  • The charms I use are quite diverse - everything from erasers to buttons to doll furniture. I can find almost anything for custom requests: specific characters, favorite foods, etc. Depending on the age of the recipient and the size of the bag, charms average 23 per bag, from <1cm up to 2", mostly in the .5"-1" range.
  • Hide & Squeak bags include a choice of legend: photo, words, or both. Photo legends are taken just before filling and show all the charms clearly. Word legends are alphabetized. I photograph the filling for each bag regardless, so you can request a "reminder"
