Flannel Friday: Toolbox

Originally, I found this flannelboard on Pinterest, which I am fast becoming majorly addicted to. However, the original templates were from Serving Pink Lemonade; toolbox here and tools here.

Here’s my rendition:

Pretty much just copied this from the template. I did wind up using felt letters stickers for the lettering though. Michaels now has stickers in felt, which makes my life way easier!

I have a plan to use this flannel as a conversation starter and matching game. I do need to create a piece of wood for the saw, if I do use it as a matching game. [Edited: In the new picture, you can see my piece of wood that looks like bacon.] I think that the kids will probably really enjoy this, and I certainly enjoyed making it.

    We use a bunch of felt tools with the book “Old MacDonald Had a Woodshop” by Lisa Shulman. Just an idea!

    Hi Katie,

    Where do you get your felt fabric? I can never seem to find very sturdy felt anywhere. The felt I can find is not thick enough for my needs, yours looks like it’s pretty thick and sturdy. Thanks!

      I purchase felt sheets at Michael’s or Joann Fabrics.
