MAKE FELT TOYS

As you all know I love working with felt. It is a fun medium to work with.....kids can do it as well. I thought I would share with you all some toys you can make at home wtth your kids....Let their imagination run....if I were a parent with crafting kids I would purchase a rolling set of drawers.....one would have felt, one with the supplies, one drawer with scraps....with felt you never throw away scraps.....you can always use them.

We need to get back to making toys.....I remember the ones that were made for me as a child and I loved them.
