Edy made some bright and colourful scrap yarn hats when he started out.... 


 That is not all that Edy makes with his yarn scraps, he is remembered and loved for the fabulous dolls he made. The Team in South Africa were amazed to find that they are big dolls. Each one unique with a head full of hair, creative clothes, and all with beaming smiles ! There will be happy children in SA who receive one of these. Edy gave us a running photo commentary on how they were made. Here are some of the photos.

Check out the belly buttons !


Here are two of them safe in South Africa ready to be loved 


And two more......

Thank You Edy for your imagination and creativity for the children of South Africa !!!
