I have some new items I've been working on, mainly Amigurumi (crocheted dolls). I'm not putting any of them up on Etsy yet, since I'm working on a major project right now. My charge's birthday is at the end of February, so I'm making something special for him. Don't worry, I'll put up photos when I get closer to being finished. I found the pattern on Ravelry, but it was in Japanese, so I had to use Google Translate. I really hope this new project is worth my time and effort!
I've got a month to finish this project, so feel free to order a doll from me, just contact me on Etsy (my shop is Tomboy Nanny), and request a custom order.

I've been playing with making "amigurumi" (Japanese for "crochet stuffed toy") dolls. I'm going to be selling these awesome friends on Etsy, but if you'd prefer to just go through PayPal, I can do that too! Would you like one that looks like your child? They are made to order, and depending on my workload, they take about 3-4 days to make.
The boy I take care of was my first model (the blond one with the big smile), and he LOVED it. He's tossed his doll in the air, dragged it around the house, and squeezed it in a super tight hug. The doll held its shape perfectly!
They are $25, plus $6 shipping.
The arms are moveable, and the entire body is soft. They're made out of acrylic yarn with polyester fiberfill stuffing.
If you're interested, my Etsy shop is HERE.

One of the fun things about knitting without a pattern is not having any idea what a finished product will look like. Sometimes it turns out to be a total mess, and sometimes it turns into this awesome dragon!
