A friend's daughter is having her 3rd B-day this weekend and since we are broke, I had to come up with a present to make out of what I already had on hand. I found Dora & Boots plastic canvas magnet patterns online and modified and created backs to turn them into dolls.
Front:


Back:


Then I found some neon plastic canvas so I made a purse/carrying  case to go with the dolls. Note the only thing that would glue the velcro directly to the plastic canvas was model cement.

Front:


Back:

Thanks for looking!

Fantastic job! Those are perfect for little hands to manipulate & carry around! I'm sure Map will come out great, he's pretty simple when he's all rolled up. Smiley

What a great gift! I would much rather have that than a store bought gift.
