quick and easy felt flowers. yay.

Let's play a game. It's called "Describe this DIY project as fast as humanly possible."

Gather materials - felt, buttons, needle, thread, sticks, glue, and ribbon (optional)

Cut de felt out into flower shapes. As you can see, my flower is a circle. I may or may not be using a circle I cut out three days ago, hence the difference in colors up there ^^ and down here.

Pick out your buttons.

Sew sew sew.... sew the stick on the back. Glue it to give it an extra hold. Yes those are pi symbols. I think they're pretty.

Ta-da! Flowers on a stick! Tie ribbon around them, sprinkle them with glitter, put them in a vase, etc. I had all of the kids make one of these for the Mother's Day flower pot we made.

who i am!

Tiph used to be this weird hippie chick who sewed things and drank tea and rode bikes and wrote silly things. Then, college came along, and now she's this weird hippie chick with math in her brain and notebooks full of indefinite integrals. And hardly any time to write. This is her space. Thankfully, space is a vacuum and any complaints you may have cannot be heard.

About a third of the credit for this template goes to Ourblogtemplates.com. The rest of that fraction goes to Tiph's incessant tinkering and exploding the CSS 'til it worked.
