My five year old has expressed some interest in sewing. She is still a little too spazzy for using the sewing machine by her self. I also would like her to learn the basics of hand sewing first. We made a pillow for her doll a couple weeks ago. Then I saw this! Fun, easy project that has great gift appeal!
My additional tips:
- The cutting and petals were very doable. She needed help with the finishing and the button.
- Tracing the outside of the tape makes medium size ones. Tracing the inside of the tape makes small ones.
- We made pins. I took a safety pin, placed the flower on one side of the shirt, and flipped the shirt edge over and adhered the pin to the wrong side through the flower.
- I want to make some and glue gun magnates to them.
