Great find! I'd make a bunch of felt play food (because that's the project I'm in the middle of!) and perhaps some characters/animals/people for stories on a felt board.

Busy books are always good, esp. if you go to church or meetings or somewhere else a kid needs to entertain themselves quietly...

If you don't know what a busy book is,<br><br><a href="http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/board.pl?t=13885" target="_blank">http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-...ard.pl?t=13885</a><br><br>
has a good discussion on them.<br><br><a href="http://www.sewbaby.com/big/patterns7_/patterns_1.html" target="_blank">http://www.sewbaby.com/big/patterns7_/patterns_1.html</a><br><br>
is a pattern, to give ideas.<br><br><br>
There are also a lot of Waldorf toy-making books out there that have lots of little dolls and gnomes made of felt. Of course, the authors would be horrified if they knew you were using synthetic felt, but I won't tell... :)

felt board and shapes<br>
I did a Halloween pumpkin shape with different eyes, noses, mouths etc..<br><br>
Holiday decorations. simple stars or circles cut with pinking shears, stuff with batting, ribbon for hanging. Can emblish with rick rack or flowers etc..<br><br>
Happy Birthday banner, resuable and personalized for the child.<br><br>
Small felt tote bags<br><br>
crowns or hats for dress up.<br><br>
more ideas but am feeling a bit brain dead.<br><br>
Yeah on the great score.<br>

I love felt "paper" dolls with interchangable outfits. You can make cardboard backgrounds too that are felted and stick dolls and characters on them as well as dollhouses with movable felt furniture <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
