Home-made felt gifts
I had a blast making things after reading the book “Big Little Felt Universe” by Jeanette Lin.
I made a hammer and a slice of cake from her book, using just sheets of craft felt, needle, thread, cardboard and stuffing. I then went nuts looking for ideas on Pinterest. Just by eyeballing pictures I was able to make a few more things.
Cupcakes and the TARDIS

The world (I used a world map from Skidmore College)
I have found a new hobby! Since I gave these all as gifts, my kids want some too- one wants a hammer, the other a TARDIS. The two best tips I learned from making these things is that you need a good pair of small, sharp scissors, and you should stuff your creations, not just cover a hollow cardboard shape (my son crushed the TARDIS and it had to have emergency repairs.)
