My Studio Girl makes the cutest Travel Buddies Kits for stitching and creating felt fun.  They are the perfect size for 18″ dolls and make great little friends.

While walking the floor at Toy Fair in NYC this February, I visited with My Studio Girl and fell in love with their adorable stitching kits.  They sent me a couple to try out and I must say, stitching this doll sized suitcase travel buddies set was super fun and simple.  I can’t wait to try a few of their other kits now.  Even the packaging is super fun.

The directions are really well written and easy to understand with pictures too.  I love the little stickers that are included to decorate the tin suitcase.

I think Isabelle loves her new little stuffed animal pet friends.  The monkey and the little teddy are great for bedtime, playtime and all of the time.  They are all so cute sleeping in this beautiful bed from A Queen’s Treasures.

And here she is when they all woke up, packed and ready to travel!

Ok – now shifting gears – Char here! When I saw Laura’s photos of the My Studio Girl kits (I somehow missed them at Toy Fair), I had to go get one of my own! So, I found the whole line at Michael’s and picked out the Monkey Travel Buddy set, too.

My finished set. These are so quick and easy to make that they would be fun to take on a car ride, save for a rainy day, or do as a birthday party activity with girls ages 7 or 8 and over.

The cuteness!!!

My Madame Alexander Autumn Mist is going to a sleepover later on so she is getting her travel buddies ready to go with her.

Her monkey and bear pack up nicely in their portable little room and are ready to join Autumn for an adventure!
