Felt dress-up dolls

The felt dress-up bears I made nearly two years ago remain some of my kids’ favorite toys. I decided to add some variety to their dress-up games by making these felt dress-up dolls – and I scanned in the templates here, in case anyone reading this wants to make some of their own. And so I can easily print out templates for extras, should these go missing…

Felt dress-up toys like these can be purchased, but I prefer the handmade version – they are less expensive and easily replaced, should one go missing on a trip! These dolls have the added benefit of being smaller than the bears, so you can put them together in a smaller space. I drew the faces on with a ball point pen. The bears’ larger features are drawn on using a Sharpie.

Wondering why there aren’t any photos of my kiddos playing with these? They’re hidden away as Christmas gifts, which is why I’m linking this post up to a Present a Week at Works in Progress. It’s a lovely linky, and I even won a bit of fabric by joining up before! If you’re doing a handmade Christmas this year you should try to link up!

Need a felt board? Our travel felt boards remain my kids’ favorites – and all you need is a little fleece, foam core board, and duct tape!

    Thanks for visiting us at waddleeahchaa and we have no other wild turkey watchers! Your post reminded me to get out my flannel board. I used it on a regular basis in my class, put it away and now need to get it back out. I too enjoy making my own story board pieces. :) joyce

  4. Oh, you are so good at making things Mary Anne–like everything! I love this! You have got to fill me in on your secret of when you make all these super cool things. I am pulling my hair out just trying to get some very simple trick or treat sacks made for Jack and Joe. You are awesome Mary Anne, really!

  5. So cute and there is nothing better to play with than a mummy made creation!

    We use a lot of felt here and it is perfect for coming up with different combinations and variations. It certainly is a versatile, durable and fun material to play with.

    Thank you for sharing your templates. I think I will also be another one of your readers who will being whipping up some of these for our Christmas stockings over here in Australia.

    I am very impressed with your hat. It’s no small feat setting a goal like that with three young children and actually achieving it.

  6. Oh, so sweet! I made a felt Christmas tree for my son to decorate when he was tiny- it ended up being decorated with barnyard creatures and items of clothing from out other felt kits- sweetest Christmas tree ever!
