Anyhow, I cut her this little odd shaped green material and she sewed to her hearts content.
When it was done she started to use it as a play garden for her puppet shows and doll games. As its novelty wore off, I decided to alter it a bit to perhaps inspire some different amusements. I cut out some triangles from the edges, sewed them back together and turned the little mat into a hill.
I used some wool roving to mound it up then hand stitched the hill onto a larger mat that could take on some additional elements. A stream perhaps? A needle felted veggie patch? A bear's cave or some shrubberies?
It's a project slow in its creation as it's one Naiya and I are building on together. At the moment she loves it just as it is and her little dolls so enjoy a good roll down the flowery hill.
