Happy Holidays...I hope you all enjoy your families and good friends this season!

Felt Holiday Bulbs...sewing with my 5 year old!

Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App

There are few things I love more than creating with my kids.  Last week, Maeve and I did some hand sewing in preparation for the holidays.  We made light bulbs that we'll string up on the front door (as soon as mom makes a few more). 

Please know that a hand-sewing expert, I am not. I am more like a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of hand sewer.  :)

It's so simple to do!  I free-hand drew the shape of a bulb for a pattern, then cut the felt pieces.  Stitched almost all the way around (leave about an inch or so), cut up an old lumpy pillow to use the for stuffing, then sewed on the "screw part" of the bulb (use a rectangle, fold it over into the square shape to save yourself a bit of sewing on one edge!).  Then I stitched across the "screw part" to make it look more like an actual light bulb.  Simple. 

I had so much fun with Maeve on this little project!  She said she *loves* making things with Mom.  Melt. My. Heart.
