Kung Hei Fat Choy

I really wanted to make a rat toy for Chinese New Year.

(reject : too much like ratatouille)

I knew there was no way I was going to get it done in time, but I've been doodling anyway.
(maybe he should be wearing buttoned pants?)

Then I started thinking about all the other signs in the Chinese Zodiac as well.
monkey : definitely

Twelve toys from scratch is a big ask isn't it?

I will have a go at some.

ram : super shaggy yarn

But in the meantime I'm happy just doodling frivolously in my margins.

Love your "doodles." And the rodent with pants idea. That would be the cutest.

Happy Year of the Rat!

They are all pretty damn fine (rat in pants gets my vote), but how would you make a pig? Can't believe I'm a pig...

Happy Rat year. Should be, by all accounts, a fun one.

ALL rats should wear buttoned pants.

Funny thing about this Rat year, it has been making me do rat things. I am a rat, I have been chasing holes in our house to say goodbye to a rat who has taken up residence (now departed), and I too, had a wholly overwhelming urge to make a rat toy. Amazing I actually did it, not sure what all this ratness means, maybe the planets are lining up for something big.
