Fun with Felt!

March 07, 2013

Want some quick, easy, crafty fun? How about a cute party favor? I have just the book for you! It's called From Felt to Fabulous by Kim Layton.

My granddaughters and I had a fun, fabulous time crafting a purse, an owl pin, a very cute bunny, and dolphin and starfish pins. This book is great because it includes patterns. Just get a few pieces of felt and some embroidery thread and you are in business. My seven, nine, and ten year old granddaughters did most of the work themselves. (Of course, I had to thread a lot of needles!) My fourth-grade granddaughter said everyone in her class just loves her owl pin!

Check it out for yourself or your children. Did I mention that sewing teaches patience? (To everyone involved!) Enjoy!
