Tuesday Crafties

I loved playing with paper dolls and finger puppets when I was little.  My mom had this whole stash of paper finger puppets that were vintage from her childhood that I loved getting out and telling little stories with.  Such a great way to get little imaginations going!

During nap time last week I managed to whip these felt finger puppets together:

I used part of my felt stash, free handed the design and hand sewed them together.  I just love the way the teal rabbit and pink owl turned out!  Now they are wrapped, boxed up and in the mail to a very special little girl to enjoy.  Maybe if little miss naps well all week I can whip some up for her to enjoy when she is a bit bigger!

What are some of your favorite childhood toys?

  1. That is so cool! Love your creativity and talent. As a child, I enjoyed toys made for me by those who loved me. Favorites---rag dolls made by grandma; stick horse made by grandpa; and kites made by my dad.
