I wasn't sure whether to show you these or whether to wait until I had sent them to my swapping buddies. But, considering I have just spent the most of the last 4 days making these ATCs, I thought, why not.

I wanted to make little characters but make them silly, a bit of fun no less. This is what I came up with.

Their heads are squashed bottle tops mounted on a spring and topped with a bit of knitting yarn for hair and a 3D hat. The bodies are simply a bit of paper-covered card and the legs, which swing away, (this keeps the whole thing to 3.5" long) are from some Paper Artsy Christmas stamps. I had just enough wobbly eyes to make all 6 but unfortunately, 1 eye has disappeared!!! Hence 'one-eyed Peg'. The rest don't have a name as yet, but I'll think of something.

Hope you had a laugh at them.
