So, the truth is that i get ideas in my head and don't give myself a lot of time to do them. Then when i am knee deep in the project i realize how much work it is going to be but by then there is no turning back. These are felt pencil toppers i made for Mitchell's school party. I started them Tuesday evening and had to finish 14 by Thursday morning. No need to explain why i was busy for two nights. The candy conversation hearts were my inspiration. I cut two pieces of felt, traced and cut with a cookie cutter. I embroidered, roughly, messages on them and blanket stitched the pieces together. Cut a little slit in the back and inserted the pencil. Voila!!!!
Here are the valentines Mitch and i worked on for his class. A whole school of Valentine fish. Just a bunch of hearts that i cut out with the same cookie cutter and he helped me glue them together. We glued on googly eyes and drew on a little smile. We wrote little messages on the back like..."you're a catch" or "you're ocean's of fun". Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
