Scrappy Fashion Fun

On one of my most recent rummaging trips, I found these wood doll slate thingamabobs.
I had never heard of them (actually called Woodkins fashion plates) and wasn't even sure what they would be used for when I scooped them up (they were shrink wrapped together and marked $1.99). There was no fabric, box or instructions with them.
Tuns out they are are perfect for my leftover fabric scraps!
I cut up several pieces of fabric to size and even a few pieces of wide ribbon for my girl to get creative with.

 Let the mixing and matching begin...

I just love how the fabric pops through once the plate is closed. I also love how this kept my girl busy for a few hours (on and off during the day)! Love spending next to nothing on something that captures interest and promotes creativity for long periods of time!

Apparently their faces are magnetic, so they can be swapped out too (beauty is in the eye of the beholder with these two).

I saw a few on EBay for cheap (when researching what these things were and what they cost retail/new). $4-$15 depending on what kind of set you find (there are even some for boys).

Hmmm...future Project Runway stars?
