Felt storyboard outfits

Nicki, at Mimi’s Room, gave me a great idea when I read a recent post about things she had made for her grandchildren. They love the little felt characters and outfits she makes for them and it is something I knew my girls would love too. Nicki wrote a tutorial here. I admit that I took a big shortcut and just cut outfits and props out of felt. When I have more time (ie when I have completed some custom orders) I will make some more elaborate items, using Nicki’s instructions. I am a bit of an instant-gratification crafter sometimes!

The important thing is that the girls love them and have been busy making up some very interesting stories. The original set was a safari collection, so the stories so far have involved princesses and their rhinoceros servants….

  1. Fiona, these look great! I like the fact that yours are more story related rather than just dress up. I think I’ll have to add some more items to mine, like your house and the snowman, to generate more story/play ideas……

    I just love the sharing of ideas that can happen with all the blogging going on out there, on so many subjects!

  2. What a cool idea!!

  3. LOVE this, Fi!! Ella just loves playing with felt boards!! Will have to get her one to play with one of these days!! :o)
