Yesterday I mentioned our felt mail set. I worked on this silly thing for hours last year at Christmas time. I liked how it looked, but it has not help up as well as I had hoped, one trip to preschool and several of the velcro pieces had come unglued. We love to use this with our table fort. I used felt (the soft and the stiff kind) and then stitched on words and designs. There are a few postcards, several stamps, name labels, a package, a couple of envelopes, and a mailbag.
All of the stamps and name labels have velcro on the back and the envelopes and package have the opposite side of the velcro hot glued to them. Our issue is that the hot glue doesn't hold the velcro on well since the kids are pulling on the pieces to separate them. I can't sew the velcro to the package since there is a cardboard 'core'. any ideas?
