Here is a very simple craft with beautiful results.
You will need :
small scraps of felt in the flower colour of your choice
small scraps of green felt for the leaves
soft elastic hair ties
needle and thread
small sharp scissors
The first step is to cut two flower shapes, one slightly larger than the other and some leaf shapes out of your felt scraps. Using small sharp scissors like nail scissors can make this step easier
Knotting the end of your thread, sew up through the hair eleastic, then the leaves, larger flower, smaller flower, and finally a small bead.
sew back through down to the hair elastic in almost the same spot, and repeat, up and down a few times to secure all the pieces together.
Finish off by securing your thread in a hidden spot at the back of the flower with some small stitches in the one spot. Inside the curl of the hair elastic works well, or on the felt leaves close to your other through stitches.
Snip off your thread and you are done.
You could just make one for a lovely ponytail accessory, or make matching or complementing colour sets to use for pigtails, or plaits.
So many fun possibilities for such a quick little craft.
Have fun weaving a little sunshine in your life this week.
