fabulous find!!

We took a dart into the value Village on the way to the bank today. I just had this pull to go in. And this is what i found!

Hung and lost in the curtain section. The felt pieces drew my attention 1st. When I pulled it out, I couldn't believe it! the kids liked it, it didn't smell, it has perfect stitching and will go perfectly in their bedroom.

I assume it is hand sewn, look at the stitches on the ladybug's legs. Same for the bird legs.

Cute doggie

and the bird.

I'm thinking it is a bit dated, but much appreciated in it's new home. I wish I knew the history behind it. Someone was very patient, talented and had some time.

Thanks for looking,

Felt sandwich tomorrow.

My son just looked at the image and said it is "Topsy and Tim" characters from a little book their grandmother reads them. She had these books given to her when she was a little girl in England.
