This is one of those times when I find myself wishing I owned a sewing machine. And that I had a single crafty bone in my body. Check it out: Gulf Coast Cottage, a wonderful shop filled with soft toys, has an entire category filled with nothing but PDF patterns for felt toys you can make yourself.
Many of the patterns are food–like the PB&J lunch set or the toaster set shown here (ah, so kids can play with the toaster!), but there’s also a doctor’s kit, tools, a child’s tea set, and even a retro robot plushie.
If you can cut and sew, imagine all the cool things you’ll soon be making, and the money you’ll be saving. Me, I’m just drooling. But you crafty mamas, you go ahead. -Mir
