Homemade Fuzzy Felt Fairyland

I was just playing around with some felt the other day making a few little animals when a little girl with brown tumbling curls came sat upon my knee and asked if she could make a magical forest for them to live in.
Well, how could I resist?
My Oldest girl Emmy helped out with making the little owl family and Bujana sewed a couple of the leaves.
It was a quiet and pleasant evening bringing this little world to life.
It has become a firm favourite already.
So much so that we are thinking of making a mermaid world next!
It is such an easy craft to do for (and with) little ones and a lovely engaging toy that stimulates their imaginations for hours.
To make a felt board simply glue some large pieces of felt onto a strong cardboard base.
Then have fun cutting out and stitching your own little animals, fairies and fairy homes.
