Crafty Times (5)

Crafty Times is a new thing I am trying on the blog where I can share some of the art and crafts I have created (you can too of course). I really dabble in a wide variety of crafts and hope you can find something that sparks your interest or inspires you!
Well I was at it again recently, and more for the little ones.  I had a first birthday to go to last weekend and when I asked the mother what the little one needed or wanted she responded with "we would love some of those felt stories you make".  So I was sent scrambling with less than a week to turn something out!
I wanted it to be book related as I always try to give books as gifts and landed on The Giving Tree, I had planned on making Munchkin a set at some point so thought this would be a good test run.
So here is the result
In the story the child takes the leaves to make a crown, so there are leaves to pull off. Then he takes the apples to make some money so again the apples can be removed. Then he takes the branches to make a house (I believe can't remember off the top of my head) so the branches are removable. Then he takes the trunk to build a boat so the trunk come off. Last there is a stump left to sit on. 
I wanted to make the boy growing up but just simply ran out of time (next time though).
So what do you think? A great bookish gift?


  1. That is so flipping cute! I love The Giving Tree, so I think it's a perfect idea. :)

    1. Thanks! I will probably end up making more of these sets and I will try to make them a little better looking, this one was thrown together in about half an hour.
