~Fabric Acorns~

A few weeks back, I followed this little tutorial on Everything Etsy, to make these fabric acorns:


Halfway through the process, I realized that the slashes in the circle (see tutorial) really weren't necessary. I could have folded the circles and sewn without the slashes.

After making my first acorn I realized that they needed some weight in the bottom in order to keep them from doing this:


Yes, they all flop over, so they lose their cuteness, since all you can see is the bottoms. While I was making them I thought perhaps some rice in the bottom would keep them upright. But I was too lazy didn't feel like getting up to try it.

We were on a walk the other day and Kevin spotted some acorns. He asked me if I wanted the acorns to make more fabric acorns and I said, "no, I wasted enough time making the ones I have." =P It was a fun little project though, just not a super productive project. They would probably be cute if they were glued onto a wreath or something. Hmmmm.
