I do mandalas as a 5th grade assignment. I just ordered a wonderful book
that "disappeared" from my room a few years back.."The Felt Book". It's
a wonderful book of felt projects that are really cute and easy to do.
There are some WONDERFUL patterns for baby shoes that are put together
with blanket stitch and have friendship bracelet type ties for the
laces. Really really cute. I used to make them for friends who were
expecting. Also, there are cute slippers that actually fit the kids
feet. And adorable headbands, purses, etc. I odered a used copy
through Amazon for 14.00. I am sooooo happy to be getting that book
again. Yeah...so it will mostly attract girls...model building gets
mostly boys, and I have always wanted to teach in an all girl's school,
