- 2 rectangles of felt – felt is the perfect beginners fabric, it is easy to work with, comes in great colours and doesn’t fray.
- 2 buttons
- a large needle, (I went with a sharp carpet needle and I am sure there are people cringing as I write this BUT like using a knife, I feel that my son he is less likely to having an accident using a super sharp needle since it glides through the fabric easily, a blunt needle would need more forcing and so making it easier to slip.
- embroidery ring
- a few safety pins
- embroidery floss
4. When the face is finished, take the felt out of the embroidery ring and lay the two pieces of felt together. Use the safety pins to hold them in place. (image 3)
5. Sew around the edge, leaving a gap for stuffing. As you can see he went over the edge a couple of times instead of up and down, I think it adds to the character :o) Remove the safety pins. (image 4)
