charlotte and buttons

Thought I'd share a couple of other Jean Greenhowe toys with you. I made this pair years ago, working from Jean's Traditional Favourites book.

Meet Buttons the Clown and Charlotte the Sailor Girl...

I love those toys. Yours look so good. My partner's grandmother used to knit those for Christmas gifts and would always tell us how hard they were to make. The hardest one was the bagpiper and she now keeps him on her mantelpiece as a reminder of all the others she knit too.

I love these toys!!! I've been meaning to make some for my little girl but have put that project in the too hard basket for the moment... Yours look great!!
