My daughter just had a birthday and we are celebrating with a party for her and eight other girls. She wanted to do a really cool craft so we decided to make flower pillows.
Start by drawing a circle on a piece of felt. I doubled it up so I would only have to make one cut per pillow because I'm lazy. Find three more circles, all smaller than the other, and draw those on the felt, too. I used mixing bowls as my patterns.
To add the dimension to the petals, I added a drop of glue and folded them in half.
I ended up using four layers of petals so I had to cut about forty of the medium sized petals. If you do a smaller pillow, you wouldn't need as many.
To do the center, cut out some yellow circles. I added a drop of glue in the middle and "squished" them together.
You are finished!
When they arrive, each girl will be given the pillow that looks like a bulls eye and some fabric glue. I'll have bowls of the petals out so that they can glue them on to their pillow.
If I do it again:
I would go a lot smaller on the pillows so that I would only need three rows of petals. I would also find my fabric scissors from the get go. . . . someone borrowed them so I thought a pair of Scotch paper scissors would work just as well. After the blister formed on my finger, I slapped a band-aid on it and demanded that my scissors be found. If you are missing a pair of scissors, I would suggest looking under a ten year old boy's bed.
