OK, I know I'm blatantly showing off here, but I'm just so pleased with how this turned out, and who knows it might inspire someone else.

With 2 new GC joining the family we again need a toy box. A simple cardboard box could have served the purpose, but if I have to look at it for the next few years I wanted something interesting. This fabric covered appliqued Toy Shop box is the result. It's fully lined and has pockets for colouring pencils and books. My GD likes that the red front door opens to reveal the interior of the shop! And better still nearly all the fabrics came from my huge stash, so no expensive outlay. Now I just need to add a few toys.

Now what shall I make next.....?

Wow, you are so clever, I am in awe.
I'm not at all crafty, the best I can do are crocheted hats, gloves, scarves etc.

Ha Ha that makes me laugh Feelingmyage55 ! I doubt that my DH would agree when I'm cluttering up the house with my crafting!
