Joey sewed a playmat earlier this year. She crocheted some flowers, needlefelted a river, felted some rocks by throwing blobs of wool fiber into the washing machine and dryer, and sewed the entire mat out of our old clothes.
Recently, a few animal friends decided to join us on the play mat. We purchased some moveable wood fence pieces on Etsy, and a farm was born!
Some of the farm animals are sewed out of felt, some are made out of wood, while others are crocheted, knitted or needlefelted. The goose came from downinthemeadow Etsy shop. Some sheep and a kitty are on their way to us from mama4earth Etsy shop. The lovely wood mushroom was made by Carle's husband. The puzzle tree came from Etsy, and the other tree is a cut piece of wood from Daddy with wool roving on top. The horse and pig came from Steiner College Bookstore. The rest were made at home by Mommy and Daddy.
This week, Wilson and Mommy were retelling the story of The Four Friends using the play farm. Then, the fences ended up becoming all sorts of imaginative creatures on their own. What fun!
