Hand-Made Pooh and Friends

When my oldest daughter was seven years old I helped her make Eeyore from a pattern in The Pooh Craft Book.
We had to transfer the patterns onto paper then to felt, cut them out, follow the directions to handstitch the parts, stuff and close.

She went on to create the entire family of Pooh Characters within the book. After the first couple she was able to create them on her own. Not long after she created a second set of characters. When she was 9 years old she gave each of her siblings one set for Christmas.



This was a wonderful activity in so many ways. - gift giving, crafting, following directions, measuring, math, intrinsicly rewarding, improves fine-motor skills.............

  7. This post brings back wonderful memories. My mom made a handmade Pooh and his friends when I was little. You did beautiful work, and I'm sure your family will cherish this for a long time.
