I saw some lovely felt houses over on Dr...Vrakator Blogs HERE, They were made as favors. I thought I'd have a go at making some with fabric. I got Inkjet fabric sheets from America, I'm not sure if they are available here, I had printed some text on a sheet and had no idea where I would use it. I put them on the back of the houses. I think they would make a nice alternative to a greeting card and you can hang them, maybe on a Christmas tree or door knob.
Apologies to all those that follow this Blog because of my art, I seem to be in Craft mode these days. I have done nothing in the paint studio for ages.

Here are a few more bags I made for the dolls. I am making a hand made book for each one with their biography, I'm really enjoying this part of the project and now that they are complete I hate parting with them.
This book has interesting fold out pages, I am trying out different book making methods. They are a nice manageable size as they fit into the pocket on the outside of the bag.

This little dolly has gone to Oregon. She flew there last Sunday and has already been admired in her new home in Grants Pass.
The bag has a pocket on the outside to keep her story book.
Tomorrow I will show you some more of the bags and books I made for the other dolls.

I just love the texture of Aran Knitwear. I can't understand why we don't use the pattern image on more gifts, table-mats, postcards, mouse pads etc.
