Working on Whabblers

Timber !!!! Watch out for that tree. This lumberjack might not be able to help you out with your yard work, but he can provide lots of playtime.

These are part of the new line of toys at Oma's Patch called Whabblers, specially designed for boys of all ages.
Each lumberjack is made with from a repurposed flannel shirt. The face panel is hand sewn and safety eyes used to be child friendly. The Axe is sewn on by hand from felt. Poly pellets are used to weigh the bottom down and then polyfill for the remaining stuffing. The bottom closure is covered with a circular felt piece hand sewn into place while the top closure is covered with a hat made from the toe section of a new tube sock.
Size is approximately 6 1/2 inches tall and 3 3/4 inches wide
Made in smoke-free, pet-free home.
I'm doing some research to add a King Whabbler, I'm got the crown figured out, and now I think his accessory will be a felt septer.
Mina helped me find one online to use as a template for the shape.

I think Mina is going to be a great helper.


  1. Thanks Emily.
    The Lumberjacks are the beginning of the series. I have Ninjas on the way, once I can find were they have run off to, silly ninjas. I am also working on Marines, Kings, and construction workers. Later I plan on adding Pink Ninjas (Warriors to fight breast cancer) and Zombies
