    Quick gift for 4 y.o. Girl?

    I need a quick gift for my great-granddaughter who lives far from me. Have already made her a dress, a quilt, a stuffed bunny and just can't think of anything else. Anybody have some suggestions? Oh, and a pillowcase, too.

    My niece just asked me for a felt board. She saw the applique dresses/overalls for the Sunbonnet Sue/Sam quilt that I am making her & insisted that I didn't need to sew the pieces together. After wasting some time trying to educate her about what makes a quilt (she is surprisingly interested & says she wants to start learning when she is 6), I started asking about if she would like a felt board. She LOVED the idea! So ... I know what she's getting for Christmas.

    I'm going to make a simple, lightweight feltboard out of cardboard and felt & then cut the pieces out of fabric and either serge them or maybe, if I'm too lazy, just put some FrayCheck on them and call it a day. She's a very imaginative little girl and I know she will derive hours and hours of fun from such a simple toy.

    EDIT: Just saw she lives far from you, so a board isn't super practical, maybe just a nice folded piece of felt with a couple grommets or clips on the top so she can hang it where she desires.

    ooohhh.... you can NEVER go wrong with a princess dress for a 4 year old. And I'm sure yours would be much, much better quality than those flimsy dresses they sell at the store. Both my nieces love those (ages 3.5 and 2), but they started fraying within hours of the first time they put them on. The Queen Elsa (Frozen) dresses seem to be especially popular right now.

    I made "Snap Bag" purses for my DGD's at 4 and they loved them. Maybe matching the dress.

    MY 4 yo GD loves tutus made from a piece of elastic and tulle. I can make one up easily in the evening. Also loves small tote bags she can carry her treasures in

    How about a fabric tic-tac-toe set? Make it so that it folds upon itself and encases the X and O's. I made the x one color and the o's a different one. My grandkids love them! 15 inch 'board', 3 inch squares.
    Deb Watkins - I woke up today on the right side of dirt. It is a good day.

    Is she crafty? When my granddaughter was about that age she loved glue, glitter, shiny things. I made her a box with bits of this and that - glue glitter, fancy ribbons, rickrack, paper doilies, packages of glass jewels, anything she could cut up and glue down. She spent many hours and a lot of glue making her masterpieces.

    I made my daughter a skirt out of tulle that was doubled in layer and had artificial flower petals held inside.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    My granddaughters love to get nightgowns. And if she has a doll, a matching nightgown for the doll.

    All these ideas are terrific! Maybe a tote bag that she can carry around (I remember having a small purse or tote when I was a little girl) and the chalkboard rollup sound like winners! My LQS is having a sale this weekend so I can pick some up there.

    Score 10 for all you helpful sewists! 😃💥

    When my DD had their fourth birthdays I made them a 3 ft rag doll, with elastic loops on the hands and feet, to dance with, and a (back then) cassette of dance music. Worked great after dinner, before bed, to wear them out enough for sleep.

    My grand daughter was really pleased with sleeping bags for her Barbies. A bag with a Barbie tucked in makes a good gift for a 4yo
