Awesome Felt Castle

I really should be sleeping since it's after midnight. When I woke up this morning to go to work, I already had massive bags under my eyes... but it's so much more fun to catch up on some much needed blog reading! I stumbled across two toy posts that I wanted to share since it's the holiday season, and we all have toys on the brain!

The first is a tutorial on how to make a castle out of felt. It definitely is the bomb diggety.

The second one is about how people these days tend to go to their local Walmart and stock up on plastic toys that leave nothing to imagination. This is not what I want for my child! For example, I want (and have been purchasing) real vintage enamleware for my son when he plays "kitchen." And she does too! This post is amazing... check it out!

  1. The felt castle was amusing, but I have some ideas of how to make structures out of fabric that would take the cake or tower in this arena! I do agree about the article regarding toys... I hope to provide my children and friends' children with good handmade, wood, fabric, etc, and creative toys. I already have so many ideas and many from you! I hope more and more individuals and businesses put their focus into creating quality toys and the future of material things.
