We’re visiting with old friends and their young son soon, and I wanted to make their son a special gift. I started with the idea that kids love to play act the roles of the adults they encounter during the day. This mailbag began as a plain, small messenger bag, then I appliqued Yuto’s name to the front in vibrant red. No guessing the owner of this little bag!
And of course a mailman needs something to deliver. His parents can give him some catalogs and junk mail to add to his deliveries, but I started him off with a few pieces of felt mail.
Don’t they look so friendly with their cartoonish shapes and colors?
Hope you like it, Yuto!
What a fabulous project! I have to make one of these for my four year old.
