Edgar the Toy Maker

Edgar makes toys out of wood.  He loves the smell of the wood chips as he chips them away with his chisel.  When Edgar begins to make his toys, he does no preliminary drawings.  HE just sets down a black of wood, stares at it while he drinks his hot cocoa (with whipped cream) and he imagines the toy inside of it.  Then he chip, chip, chips away at the wood with his chisel.  While he is working he is very focused, though you wouldn't know it by listening to him because while he works he plays jolly tunes on his kazoo.  Edgar gives his toys away to children with big hearts and no money because he finds that they enjoy his toys the very, very most, and that makes Edgar quite happy.

Edgar is for sale in my Etsy shop, and I am making more big-headed (in the physical sense, not the ego sense) for Strange Folk festival!

Have a lovely Sunday!

Oh I love him! I especially love that he is only wearing sleeves and pants. Very manly! Did his muscles just explode out of the rest of the shirt like the Hulk?
