Our inspiration: Kim Archer's Blossom Friends Felt Finger Puppets in the new Australian Homesewn Magazine.
Our design and creative process:
Ess loved creating new hairstyles for our gals and continued this activity in her own book with sketchings of many new friends.
Our result (of a work still in progress):
There is just something so enticing and intriguing about making tiny tiny stitches to form something which is pretty for my little ones to play with. It is calming, relaxing, inspiring and productive. But that's not all...I just can't seem to put my finger on it.
Enjoyed in play:
Little Eee's favourite game with the puppets this morning was to pop them on her fingers one by one, then throw them down on the floor combining both fine and gross motor skill development. What a clever little poppet! She also simply loved swishing them all down after I had lined them up neatly on the window sill to be photographed ;).
This is how I enjoyed our winter solstice, snuggled up with tiny needle in hand making tiny stitches to delight tiny hearts with tiny finger puppets for magnanimous amounts of fun, creativity and play.
