I fell in love with Olivia and I’m sure you will too. She is a delightful little girl, who made a video on how to make a beautiful felt flower from roving. She takes you step-by-step and you will certainly learn a thing or two from this little girl. She and other children are on a site called Big Red Hat. She takes you from the beginning on how to lay out your roving and how to turn it into a beautiful flower and leaf. It is then put in lingerie bags and placed in the dryer. Once the bags are removed from the dryer she straightens out her creations and begins embellishing from her collections of buttons and uses an electric sewing machine to make this project a delight. She has several videos available for you to watch and you are really drawn in by her complete and specific instructions. Enjoy Olivia’s flower video and check out the other children on Big Red Hat. The children will keep your little ones busy for months.
