If you are a maker-of-things-person and ever use the bags of polyfil to stuff your creations, you've probably got a pretty good stash of these darn wooden dowels just like me.
One is included in every bag of polyfil (well, with the brand I get anyway). They are to be used to help poke polyfil into corners, cracks, and creepy areas of your creations.
Yes. I have used them for that purpose. But, even I only need one for poking.
I hate to admit it, but I've tossed a lot of them during my creating years. I've tried to figure out what to do with them. Let's see....too thick for ka-bobs. Sand them down and make knitting needles? Mini drum sticks...are you kidding me? Kindling for summer campfires? I just couldn't figure out a good use for them but knew there must be something they would be good for.
I FINALLY got it. Duh. Flower stems! Why didn't I think of it before?
So last night while watching the Westminster Dog Show (what adorable animals!), I created a bouquet of felt flowers.
