When I saw this challenge I thought "perfect place for my daughters holiday project" and they could even win a cool stuff.
Heres how it all went down-- Both of my girls wanted to make something for their best buddies at school. The school has a strict one for all policy about gifting and parties. We did some brain storming and my second grader decided she wanted to make backpack clips for all of her friends, my little one was kinda on board but "we don't carry backpacks."
So project 40 backpack clips got started.
With my handy dandy die cutter I cut out 80 5 inch eggs for the bodies from fleece, then I cut out circles and ovals and triangles from felt.
The girls put the bodies out all over the kitchen table and start to potato head
Once they liked what they had the added a bit of school glue to keep the felt pieces on the fleece and I went around and added child safe animal eyes. Then the stitching started.
The girls have finished 1 to my 6 but I have a bit more sewing experience. We used 8 pearl cotton to sew down the felt and then to attach the front to the back.
Originally I had some lobster clips attached to the split ring sewn into the top but when I went to get more I realized they were 75 cents each so I picked a less expensive clip. This also works for zipper pulls, a bit big.
A grand time was had by all.
