Spool People


Lindy's Family


We saw this on Crafty Crow back in the spring and never had time to make them. Lindy especially has been asking when we could make spool people. Finally, last week the girls made their little families. Simple, simple!
One wooden spool, one wooden ball (one side flat works the best) fabric scraps, embroidery floss, and markers and the possibilities are endless. Once they got started they could not stop. We need more spools and then they will be at it again. Ours are fairly small but we are going to make some larger ones next.
The girls have been playing with these in their numerous dollhouses along with the porch, patio, and yard. So cute and fun!
