-- use tacky glue instead of sewing & use ribbon to close. Also instead of blank paper use coloring book pages. Overall super easy craft! A bit labor intensive(no quick way to cut slits for crayons & books) but very easy!
In the same vein of the campfire I just posted - I have to wonder how hard it would be to make this on my own. New project maybe? // Felt Campfire Plush Playset flames logs and rocks by Kklaus, toy toy
