Can you say charm packs? How great is this idea. I know a few little people who will be getting this this year. What a great idea. I have always hated the paper memory games. The pieces and small and always get lost or swept into the trash.
tutorial is from fishsticksandfries. Great Idea!
This tutorial from handmade by jill takes a pages from the oh-so-popular crayon rolls.
Felt Food Christmas Cookies
I have used this same idea for little Easter and Valentine's Day gifts. Plus, this is a great idea for letter learning. You could make the "cookies" in the shape of letters. Whip up a couple of these sets for all of the little preschool friends. It is cheap and easy. It you don't sew, you could easily fuse or glue this together with great results.
Soft Doll Monster
I think that kids love stuffed animals in equal proportion to how much mom's despise them. Maybe it's just me, but they have a way of taking over a room. Yet, somehow, my kid and every kid I have ever know has in insatiable thirst for stuffed dolls. This great tutorial is for a plush monster doll. I'm thinking DVD + Doll = great gift for niece/nephew
Also, we have many soft doll and monster patterns in the shop for $2.95 this holiday season.
Dress Up Tutorial
This is a nice tutorial for a simple and easy to make cape. I don't know any kid who doesn't like dress up clothes, boy or girl. As I am totally lazy, I would make this cape from felt or fleece and applique an initial or something for personal onto the back.
This tutorial and more can be found at Yours 'til Niagra Falls.

Skip to my lou has this great tutorial for making your own crayon rolls.
Felt Board Tutorial
This is a nice tutorial for making a felt board with a picture frame. Lisa & I did a previous post so look in the archives about creating felt board pieces with your die cutter machine.
Felt Play House
This isn't really a tutorial, but you seriously should not need a tutorial to create this.
Zhu Zhu Pet Clothes
Yes, I actually am serious. Kamille has been asking for these since her b-day, when she got 4 pets.
This is a simple and fast project that can use up loads of little scraps. Plus, if you are going to a birthday and gifting one of these little things, the kid will be thrilled to get some clothes to go along with.
