There is this super fun line of fabric that has people and castles and various other fun prints. I've used it a few times in quilts but somewhere on the interweb I saw that someone had made finger puppets out of one of the prints. I had some fabric left over and decided to make some. They turned out super cute. And I made some backdrops as well with the castle prints. Also very cute. I took one set with me when I went to visit friends last month. Another set got mailed off today to some other friends.
Ah Ha! Found the reference post here: http://lizzyhouse.typepad.com/lizzyhouse/2010/07/cpsc-first-session-activity.html
