Handmade birthday present

My baby boy will have travelled four times around the sun next week.  I have been working on a handmade gift out of my stash of felt, wool and felted sweaters.  I am pretty happy with the result and hope that he likes it as much as I do.  The gnome family is soon ready to move in!

 

 



Voor de verjaardag van de kleinste volgende week ben ik aan de slag gegaan met vilt, wol en vervilte truien die ik nog had liggen.  Zie hier het resultaat.  Ik hoop dat hij het net zo leuk vind als ik.  De kabouter familie is ook bijna klaar, dus binnenkort is het huisje bewoond.

  1. Wat een lief huisje!

    Heb je een patroon gebruikt of gewooon naar eigen inzicht gewerkt?

    1. Gewoon begonnen zonder echt plan, maar met materialen die ik nog had liggen. Het was erg leuk om 'zonder' plan te werken.

    1. Thanks for all the lovely comments! He enjoyed it tremendously, confirming that kids don't need flashy colourful plastic toys, open-ended natural ones work wonders as the gnomes soon went on a train-ride and invited the animals to their home. . .
