For the want of a Chaffy…
So, when I made the Chaffys not that long ago, I mentioned that Felix liked to play ‘Find Chaffy’ with them. This is fine and fair enough when playing games, but the Chaffys appear to sneak around and get into all sorts of places…
Like under the sofa.
Nestled in the sock drawer.
Lurking in the toy box.
Peeping out from in the blankets.
Hiding under cushions…
The list is pretty endless. The point is trying to get all ten in one place and staying there was driving me mad. So, I did the obvious thing!
I made a Chaffy bag. In all the colours of the Chaffys. It’s pretty bright, and almost but not quite rainbow like! I used the free pattern ‘Taffy’ by The Noble Thread – mostly because I liked the construction and it would allow panels of colour as opposed to the normal stripes.
It had nothing to do with the fact I found it highly amusing that Taffy and Chaffy rhyme.
You’ll notice in the photo that only nine of the ten Chaffys are present, and a little set of fingers, this is because Inkling has taken a shine to them, especially the dinosaur one, and kept photo bombing and stealing them, this was the best of a bad bunch!
