Meet Carlisle Crocodile!
He's going to a birthday party and he's bringing a big gift. He hopes his is the biggest present of them all. :-)
Get ready to settle in for a bit of handsewing with lovely wool felt. Embroidering on wool felt is a joy – a total delight for the eyes and the fingers.
Plus – handsewing is portable. Take it with you to soccer games, Girl Scout meetings, you name it.
It’s also faster than you think. Carlisle only takes a few evenings to make!
