Get in Touch With Your Feltings

Time to Make Gifts for our Lovelies.
Teacher Clips:

We folded felt over paper clips, added felt shapes, used spots of glue to hold. 

Sewing time: a little whipstitch around the edge 

We have a bloom of flowers and bugs for our favorite kinder-"Gardener"!

Felt Flower Clips and Corsages:

Cut scallops in a strip of felt,
gather and pinch each scallop into a petal
Fasten with a quick tacking stitch or two.
Continue to gather, pinch and stitch remaining petals together.

To make into a hair clip: sew or glue the flower to a clip.

Even Easier Felt Flowers:
Cut a flower or butterfly shape from felt.
Bunch it together in the center. 
Sew the bunchy part with several tacking stitches. 

We layered two flowers,
stitched them to a safety pin

added a button.

A non-wilting corsage!

A great making-things book:

These are so adorable! I marvel at how well your daughters can use sewing needles and create small stitches.

Thanks, Michele! Felt and big needles are very forgiving with beginning sewers.
