Hazel's Christmas Gift is Finished

So for Christmas I finished Hazel's playmat. Awhile ago I made her a zoo play mat (for original post go here). I have been making her some animals for her zoo and bought a few. At her school holiday fair I bought her a wooden hedgehog and a fabric pig and turtle. Then I made a wool kangaroo, penguin and lions. I finally finished her male lion. What do you think?

I knew I wanted to make it reversible and decided to make a castle play mat on the other side. I bought her some castle blocks and then found some more that are at an incredible price at Michaels this week, so I bought her two sets.
I was going to make her a royal family, but ran out of time so I bought her one and a unicorn. I bought them at 50% off sale at least.
 I think she will love it. I can't wait to see her open it all. Are you making any of your Christmas gifts this year?

Now I just need to finish her birthday gift and all the decorations and plans for her birthday party.


  1. What a lucky girl! You are so talented that you can make those things for her.

  2. Oh my goodness, it's beautiful!!!

    It's the week before Christmas and I still have 2 dolls to make. DOH! I dyed playsilks today, so at least that's done, and I finally gave up on making play food and bought some at Ikea.

  3. Wow, that is fabulous! I would be playing with the castle and royal family alllll the time myself.

    I made fabric shopping tote bags for three friends, my mom, and myself this year. They have plastic canvas inserted in the bases to make them stand flat, but still let them be machine-washable. I'm so pleased with the way they turned out! I didn't make any of my kids' presents this year, but I did buy several from Etsy, so they'll be getting some handmade things anyway.

  4. Awesome gifts! I love the play mats. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing at Mom's Library.
