A flower and a cutie

I ran across a really cute tutorial the other day and decided to give it a try.

It’s a felt dahlia.  I have a few ideas for making some and decided to experiment with some basic pink felt I had.

The tutorial calls for glue and a lot of drying time.  I decided to try a lot of pins and my sewing machine.  I think the project turned out really cute, but I had to add a lot more petals to cover the stitches.  I like it, but I prefer the more open flower in the tutorial, so I think I’ll have to break down and use glue on my next one.

Meanwhile, my three year old is pleased as punch with it, and I loved the way she started tipping her head from side to side while I took pictures and she tried to ignore her biggest brother.

Yeah, she’s cute.
