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.)
