Just "felt" like it!!

Last night my 4 year old and I couldn't sleep. So at 11:00 pm we decided to go downstairs and 'craft'. I will not be receiving a "responsible parent of the year" award any time soon. (Especially seeing as how today we are both tired and grumpy.) But,...hearing her squeals of delight last night as I brought out the felt and scissors made it all worth it!!

Felt is my new best friend. It's inexpensive, it's colorful, and it doesn't fray. I think I am going to see how many felt projects I can pull off before the holidays just for the fun of it. So while my daughter made an adorable felt hot dog and 'funny man', I made these.... felt flower pins and barrettes. They were so simple. I free handed them all. Just cut and stack, and stack some more, and if you don't like it,...try again. Think of the cute projects that you could make if you actually used some templates, or a pattern and put some effort into it! :)

I secured a few with a big cris-cross stitch in the middle, and the others with a giant cloth scrap- booking brad. On the back I hot glued either a clip, or a large safety pin. Sooo fun!

They look too cute on my purse,..........

on my daughter (this is her favorite one, huge surprise),............


In my hair,..................


and on my other daughter!!! HAPPY CRAFTING!!!

Very cute! I've been seeing so many felt projects lately that I've wanted to try. Have you heard of Anna Maria Horner? She has a felt garland on her site with a tutorial - it's so cute! :)

Darling. Probably ok that you did it at such a late hour--a good memory/good bonding time with your kid!

Cute flowers and cute children! I would have loved having a mom like you when I was a child. One who would be creating beautiful art with me instead of forcing me to sleep when I just cannot. Your kids are lucky.:)))

I laughted when I saw the name of your post along with the pics! Those are some cute flowers. Who cares if you don't get the parent of the year award right!? She will probably always remember times like that anyway!
