I love things that you can get multiple use out of. Take for example these cute little felt pencil toppers which were originally used as felt cupcake toppers! These would make such a good present for the other kids in your child's class. You can make these in just about any design your imagination can think of. There is a step by step tutorial you can find by clicking on the title above. I especially like the little pink felt cupcakes that were made as toppers! In the tutorials she uses a sewing machine to stitch things together for some of the toppers. Since I don't have a sewing machine and am too lazy to sew in the first place I thought of making these without the machine. All it requires is a little bit of good ol' glue and embroidery floss and you're good to go! I would love to hear your feedback on this tutorial if any of you make this. Feel free to post pictures on flickr and link to it here in the comment section.
