Everything is made out of oak and sealed in beeswax/flaxseed oil. DH cut everything out/glued and I did the rest. I love making toys!

Bird teether for our niece. Burned the edges of the ribbon so it wouldn't fray, and made the feet out of a cotton baby sleeper and stuffed it with pieces of a crinkly sun chips bag.

Fish teether for dd. I have since painted over the little fish with acrylic paint since we couldn't get them to stop bleeding color all over dd. The little fish move back and forth making a rattling sound.

Fishing pole and fish for our nephew. I also found a little drawstring bag for 50 cents that I put the fish in.

that fish teether is really cool. And the fishing pole looks very well made, I'm sure that will be a huge hit.
