Felt Paper Dolls

I have lots of good reasons for being MIA of late, but the best reason of all is my new great nephew (pictured above) -- isn't he a doll?
I haven't had just loads of time for crafting, but I've managed to carve some out for making b-day gifts for nieces! 
Here's the felt doll book I made a little niece turning 5 today!
 I used the Sizzix paper doll dies to cut out dolls and felt accessories for her to play with over and over again.
The middle of the book has two dolls waiting for little Maddy to dress them up!
Here are all the boy things!
Hope she enjoys some happy hours of felt doll play this week!

LOVE the great-nephew, and the felt book is fantastic, too!

I've hung onto those dies with just such a project in mind, so I'm bookmarking this one for future reference.

The baby is just as sweet as he can be, love the froggie pjs, and his little hands covering his face.

I didn't know sizzix had paper dolls, what a wonderful idea to use felt to make the dolls, thanks so much for sharing your cleverness. ~ Abby

Such a cutie pie he is! I am sure your niece will love her gift! I used to love dressing paper dolls and colorforms when I was little. I love the idea of the pretty felt pieces. They will take a beating too from constant play!

What a darling your little nephew is!
Love your felt book. I had one similar to it when I was a child.

I'm sure Madeline will have hours of fun with the felt dolls.
