Gramma's Little Shop

Gramma's Little Shop started when I began making things for my 2 grandchildren Malin and Parker. At the time, I sold completed items and over time I found that I really enjoyed making up the patterns so that's where I am today. My patterns are not computer drafted but hand drawn and require varying amounts of skill from basic beginner to a little more complex. If you can handle an iron, a pair of scissor and a glue gun you can make these. WHY FELT BOARDS? Felt play expands the imagination! Children will create characters, storylines, conflicts, etc. Telling a story using felt uses multiple senses. Felt boards assist with fine motor skills, social skills, memorization, independence, and language development.

Why a felt board?
* Using felt pieces to retell stories gives children a visual reminder of what they heard.
* Tactile: Involves the senses – textures, sounds, colors, shapes
* Fine Motor: Hand-eye coordination and manipulation
* Auditory: Listening and hearing
* Creativity: Imagination, make-believe, music, and drama
* Language: Speaking and listening, vocabulary and reading skills

FREEZER PAPER: I use freezer paper to print and cut my patterns. It is the secret to cutting small precise pieces! Freezer paper is available as a roll in grocery stores and can be cut into 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheets to print on or you can purchase precut sheets. My patterns are not intended to be cut on Cricut or Silhouette machines.

I have also included basic instructions on making a felt board with this pattern.

PLEASE NOTE: PATTERNS ARE INSTANT DOWNLOADS AND ARE NOT REFUNDABLE.

A little about me. My name is Kathy and I have been married to my hubby Paul for 47 years. Where has the time gone? We have 3 children – Steve, Ryan and Holly – and one wonderful son-in-law Dustin. I am a grandma to Malin and Parker and they keep me on my toes. Besides my family and my shop I enjoy traveling, photography, and reading.
