The felt dress-up bears I made nearly two years ago remain some of my kids’ favorite toys. I decided to add some variety to their dress-up games by making these felt dress-up dolls – and I scanned in the templates here, in case anyone reading this wants to make some of their own. And so I can easily print out templates for extras, should these go missing…
Felt dress-up toys like these can be purchased, but I prefer the handmade version – they are less expensive and easily replaced, should one go missing on a trip! These dolls have the added benefit of being smaller than the bears, so you can put them together in a smaller space. I drew the faces on with a ball point pen. The bears’ larger features are drawn on using a Sharpie.
Wondering why there aren’t any photos of my kiddos playing with these? They’re hidden away as Christmas gifts, which is why I’m linking this post up to a Present a Week at Works in Progress. It’s a lovely linky, and I even won a bit of fabric by joining up before! If you’re doing a handmade Christmas this year you should try to link up!
Need a felt board? Our travel felt boards remain my kids’ favorites – and all you need is a little fleece, foam core board, and duct tape!
