I put the kit in these Christmas suitcases that I bought at Hobby Lobby after Christmas last year. As soon as I can find a replacement suitcase, I'll switch the kit out, so that I can use this suitcase for something Christmasy next year.
Within the suitcase are several bags of scraps...fabric scraps, ribbon scraps, and yarn scraps.
I printed the dolls on cardstock and cut them to fit in the suitcase. I also included 2 pairs of scissors, 4 glue sticks, and a bag of buttons (for my button loving girls!).
This morning E(2) asked for "the suitcase work," and she got right to work after we opened the suitcase and bags. She loves to cut the fabric, yarn, and paper. She likes to place the fabric on the dolls and occasionally glues it down. Usually, she just rearranges over and over and over again and never actually finishes a doll :)
This is the perfect kit to take when you have time to kill and space to spread out and make an easy to clean-up mess. The girls and I had to go with Elliott to work on Saturday, so I grabbed this kit on the way out the door. Thank goodness I did! We were at his office for 2 and a half hours, and we worked on our dolls almost the entire time...perfectly content in our creativity!
I have to admit that I've enjoyed this kit as much as the girls have. It's so much fun to play and create with my girls.
Evidently, she needs lips! O(5) added thick pink yarn for her lips :)
Here is my finished doll.
E just couldn't decide what she wanted her boy to wear.
This is one of the easiest "handmade" gifts that I've ever put together! And it's fun for all ages! Here's another link to more printable dolls...click here.
