Modern Felt Ornament


I never miss an opportunity to combine art and math.
We did some lovely kirigami snowflakes last year, involving folding and fractions, so this year I found a sweet little felt ornament that served as a little lesson in shapes. http://blog.betzwhite.com/2009/12/felt-ogee-ornament-tutorial.html


We learned how to make a square from a rectangle.


Then traced in the cutting lines with chalk in triangle shapes.


We had to fold each 'ring' in alternate directions before sewing in a stitch to hold the shape in place.


Then O made herself some LIPS!
