Clothespin Doll Kits

At the end of last quarter, I made each of the art club kids a tiny clay animal as a goodbye gift. I was thinking maybe this time I would give them each a couple art supplies or a mini journal to use during summer break. After some thinking I decided to make them each a little clothespin doll kit, with supplies for them to make their own little set of peg people over the summer.
 Each kit contains two clothespins (every clothespin doll needs a friend), a tuft of wool roving (this is my favorite material for hair), a length of wool yarn...
Plus a pile of assorted fabric and ribbon scraps (and a pre-cut bow-tie/hair-bow, just for fun):
To package them up, I decorated mini kraft paper bags with fingerprints...
 then added details...
 plus names...
and stuffed them each with a set of the clothespin doll supplies.

(P.S. here's a bowl-full of clothespin dolls I made)
