Lily LOVES sewing, so I’m always looking for simple projects she can do (she’s only two and a half, even though she often refuses to believe that fact…) that still give her a sense of accomplishment. This little flower was a slightly more complex version of the sewn felt trees the kids made in December. We took two different colors of felt, and layered a single circle with a three-petal flower layer, followed by a five-petal flower layer in a somewhat imperfect homage to Fibonacci (because that makes my math-adoring husband happy). No in-process photos, because I gave my two-year-old a needle, and that requires closer supervision than a camera will allow!
The next step is to stitch the flower to one of Lily’s tops – once she decides where she wants it! In the meantime, I have one proud and happy two-year-old, which is what it’s really all about. :)
