Felt Doll

Materials

  • Felt
  • Pen or marker
  • Cardboard
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Scraps of yarn and fabric
  • Shoe box

Directions

  1. Draw the shape of a person on a square of felt.
  2. The person should have clearly defined arms and legs, with the arms held away from the body.
  3. Glue the felt to a piece of cardboard and cut out the doll.
  4. Glue on yarn for hair, and draw a face with a marker.
  5. To make clothing for the doll, place the doll on scraps of fabric and use a marker to trace around the body.
  6. Cut out the clothes and dress the doll; the cloth will stick to the doll's felt body.
  7. Store the doll and clothes in a shoebox and take the box with you on long car rides.
