Welcome to the November Challenge!
We have had our first snowfall here in Eastern Canada, and it won’t be long before shopping centres are full with Christmas decorations and all sorts of toys and games. What better time to put our crafting creativity into fun, toy-themed squares for our children!
Classic toys and games like these might be a good start.
Do you have a special memory of a favourite toy or game from your childhood? That could be a wonderful inspiration for squares!
And, don’t forget our favourite toy – crayons. Why you ask?
Why, to make crayon-coloured Plain Janes, like these beauties from Anne P., of course!
After you have had fun and games with your toy and game squares, why not try a Teddy Bear?
Our Pattern of the Month is the wonderful Teddy Hand Puppet designed in knit by Shelley Pearson and in crochet by Andrea Palmatier.
I have never made a knit toy, but I am going to give it a try this month. Won’t you join me?

This will be my last submission for November, but hopefully not my last toy ! I have posted three photos to show how it looks closed ...
Laurie, I want to thank you for this wonderful month of fun !! I have a feeling that a bit of this challenge will sneak in every now and then in the form of another toy, teddy bear, or game. It's been a real joy to be able to reach back into my childhood for memories and ideas to help to create Toys, Games, and Teddy Bears for our precious little children. Everyone has done a spectacular job!
And I just love looking at all the photos ... our KAS brag book :))) ... and imagining the fun the children will have with all the fabulousl gifts. xo
Here are some adorable dolls by Annie (USA). The children will love them !
Sheila's stunningly beautiful puppets.
WOW Sheila!! Your display of puppets is magnificent...so bright and cheerful....I can only imagine the oohs and aahs when these beauties are unpacked in SA. :))
A caterpillar (you know, like the stuffed toys for babies)...... needle-felted by Kym, knitted by me. When I saw Kym on the w-end, she said "I will have to knit you another yellow square because I have totally wrecked the one you gave me.". I asked her to bring it in to work and show me anyway....but look... Its FANTASTIC!! A little child is going to LOVE running their fingers over this 3D cutie . Well done, Kym!!!!
This is our last square for November. :)
