My neighbor asked me to make something for her 5 year old granddaughter. She wanted something like a busy book. I really could not find a pattern for this age and so I am making it as I go. I loved paper dolls at that age and so decided to use felt as a medium to make them. These are the ones I have completed and the beach scene. The ball, sand bucket and fisf can be stored in the beach towel. The pink purse has a snap on it and you can put a treasure in it.

I had so much fun doing this kitchen. I wanted it to be fun.The mother was fun to make too.
Here I show what can be opened to make it fun for Catie. The fridge door opens and has shelves to tuck in food. So far I made vegetables but have a milk carton cut out and a few more things. I do anything like the door in double felt and all the smaller items too. I sew each one. Under the sink I have a knife so far and want to make dish soap and a pail. On the shelf above the stove is a water pitcher. The pan on the stove has Velcro to hold it there. In the oven is a casserole with a chicken leg baking. I want to make some more too.
Any doll fits behind the table.

As soon as I take some pictures I will add this weeks work. So what do you think?
