i made this cloth nativity a couple of weeks ago. it has character. i really wanted a nativity that the kids could play with, but that also had a handmade feel. this time of year is so wonderful for so many reasons and the most important reason is that we celebrate the birth of Christ. i want my kids to know that that is the most important reason. hopefully these wee peoples will help. let me introduce you to them:
the wise guys
the holy family
and the angel
i used scrap fabric and stuffed them with polyfil and beans (hopefully they don't sprout...)
next year i might make a stable and animals.
