Felt Doctor’s Kit

It’s more than a month since my daughter’s birthday and I still haven’t shared with you all the presents I made. Next up was an addition to the dress-ups/pretend play box: A felt doctor’s bag.

The next Christmas present I have to show you is a Pretty Pink Felt Cake made for my 2 year old niece. It’s from the book Big Little Felt Universe, that has the cutest felt toy patterns (and something for everyone). I’m not a big fan of hand-sewing, and there was no way around it […]

Felt Nursery Art

When I was pregnant with my son, I searched high and low for nursery art that wasn’t too expensive. To add to the challenge, I didn’t find out the sex of the baby, so I wanted something gender neutral. The only stuff I could find was $50+ for a single picture, and generally fell into […]
