Play Mailbag and Felt Mail

Yuto's Mail Bag

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!
