Anyone remember playing with this stuff?
I have fond memories of fuzzy-felt from the sliding door toy cupboard at home. We even had this set:
I decided to make some for the children in my life! Using a board which was actually the back of an old picture frame I covered it in some felt and trimmed the edges with some complementary ribbon from jane means (of course!).
I then cut some shapes from some scraps of felt to make up a seaside picture. I cut some beach huts and stuck the little stripe and door details to the hut shape with some fabric glue. I also cut waves, boats, sails, waves, birds, sunrays and sunshine and fish.
Of course you are only limited by your imagination as to what shapes to cut, I was thinking a shark and people swimming could be fun!
On the reverse of the same board I covered it in some green felt trimmed with another stripey jane means ribbon.
I then cut out some petal shapes and grass, stems and leaves.
And used them to make up a flower garden based picture. I love this as a creative toy, you really can create any kind of scene you wish or whatever your child loves. The pieces stick to the felt and can be arranged any way the child wishes.
