You could make this...

My daughter and her friend went on a shopping trip to Claire's. The Thrifty Miss she is, found this in the clearance section. $1.99 worth of inspiration. She thought it looked like me, so she bought it. I loved it and then started examining it closer. It is made by die-cutting fabric into flowers. Anyone who has the old Sizzix with the handle you push down could create this. Or, you could hand-cut flowers. Each one is folded in half and then folded again like a triangle. They are sewn together. Take a closer look. Wouldn't these be cute on a bag, a belt, or even a bracelet? I have a cream colored sweater I am going to pin it too. Great find, Miss Hayden!

Really cute.. They would be fun to make. You seem to have a sweet daughter that loves what you love.. She will be her person but, she will get her creative mind from you.. How fun.. It is amazing how even our kids see something and think "Hey... Mom could do something with this?"! Ha!!
