How to play: Materials

We played a game today.  Here's how it goes.

Sit on the couch and face your "shop keeper" who is on the other side of the coffee table.
Ask for the kind of material you would like and how much.
Watch how it is cut up...


...and folded.


Make payment.

Alternatively, Maisy Mouse can arrive in her priviate aeroplane slipper.


And try on some haute coutour paper garments until she finds a skirt that fits the bill.

Make payment.

Leave couch and wonder if somehow all those trips to the material shop have made a deep and lasting impression.

Gorgeous story! I am constantly amazed (and amused, and sometimes mortified!) how little ones reflect all sorts of things back. Have a lovely weekend!

So nice.
I love Maisy in her aeroplane slipper.
What a great way to travel to the fabric shop!
My lttle boy loves coming fabric shopping with me.
His job is to carry the zips and thread.
He also loves Maisy Mouse!
