Travel Bugs have everything but a plane ticket

Larissa Holland of mmmcrafts made two very special gifts for her friends who were traveling abroad. The presents were a pair of toys called Travel Bugs, fuzzy little critters that come packed in their own Altoid tin turned travel compartments. Both of the Travel Bugs (the girl is named Leafling and the boy is Boogerby) already come packaged with their own felted food and maps. What a sweet gift!

I know what you are thinking, "Where can I buy one of these adorable traveling companions?" Well, the short-ish answer is that, as these were made as gifts for the artist's friends, you can't buy one ... yet. In Larissa's blog post, she mentioned the possibility of selling them (or more likely, a tutorial on how to make your own) in her Etsy shop. This is, of course, is not set in stone. In the meantime, check out her shop on Etsy. She has a bunch of other adorable cute plushes and patterns to make your own as well.
