Felt Carnivorous Plants

Emily and her friend Sara are doing their 4th grade science fair project on carnivorous plants. Emily chose the Venus Fly Trap and Sara chose the Pitcher plant. I suggested Emily make her model from felt and she was excited to do it. I made up a pattern and cut the pieces out. But she sewed them herself. I also made up Sara's pattern and cut her pieces out but she sewed her's on her own too. All I did was get them started with one or two stitches.  I really really think these turned out sooo awesome!! Emily's Venus Fly Trap will live on our book shelf for sure.  Her's is all wool felt and Sara's is acrylic felt. The stems have wire in them and so does Sara's "lids".
Below are the pattern pieces I  made up.

Oh wow, they're genius! Even without the prompting of a science project these would be cool to make. I'd love to make a giant Triffid sized one to scare my kid!! :)
