James was asking me to make some feltboard knights. So here are three! I found some silver craft foam that was sparkly, so now we have some knights in shining armor! Also found that a placemat that was made of plastic with a metallic look worked really well for armor, too. The plastic and foam are glued onto the felt backing with craft glue. I needed to handsew a black felt "inside" onto the grey felt backing, before glueing on the armor.

So now we are making swords and shields, and next will be a dragon-- and of course a princess, and horses for the knights, and maybe some parts of a castle-- but then we'll need a king and queen and lords and ladies . . . this project just keeps going!
