It’s time for another Tinkerlab Creative Challenge! Last time it was all about the egg carton and this time it is all about flowers! We could have dried flowers, painted flowers or even grown flowers, but when I asked my daughter what she wanted to make with flowers she said…a hair band! Done! I love any opportunity to pull out the felt and get sewing. In fact, with this project my daughter figured out how to thread the needle and tie the knot in the thread, by herself. I love the look of pride learning a new task bring across her little face.
What an amazing way to work on hand-eye coordination! I did about 75% of the sewing for this project, but that’s okay. I love activities that require both of our attention. Here is what we created.
2. Create a decorative edge for the flower with either the pinking shears or use regular scissor and cut a wavy edge.
4. Using the needle and thread, secure the flower roll by feeding the thread through the bottom of the flower a few times.
