Teacher Gift

Since my oldest only just started preschool, this whole school thing is new to me. And at the last minute I panicked--I need to get a teacher gift. What to get, what to get.

I made them (the teacher and the assistant, both women) felt flowers. Felt flowers again! I can't help it I think they're so lovely. And so I made a third for myself.

I made them in cream. So beautiful for winter, don't you think?

A new addition is a hair clip on the back. So you can pin it or clip it.

Here are the pins and clips I used. I just hand sewed them on before gluing it together.

Ahhh. Lovely.

The original tutorial I used is found here.

Linking to some of these great parties.

  2. I made some last week, though my first attempt following the tutorial did not work. The glue was just not working for me. So I ended up having to hand stitch every petal. I felt like they would stand the "test of time" better? I don't know. Anyway, yours turned out super cute & I like the idea of putting both the clip & pin to the back! BTW, here is my attempt:

  3. Jenna - your flowers are beautiful! The glue was a little messy for me, but it worked well. I had to hold each petal down under the rim of a bowl for a few minutes, but then it was really secure. Cute bag too, girly!
