CUTTING THE PATTERNS:

  • Place one of the pattern pieces over top of felt sheets in the color of your choosing. Using fabric scissors, cut along the solid lines.
  • Cut two pieces of the cloud pattern, two pieces for the eyes and cheeks, and one piece for the remaining patterns.
  • Clip the notches at the tops of all the ray pieces as well as the notches along the length of the narrow stripe piece.

ASSEMBLING THE FELT PIECES:

  • Preheat the hot glue gun.
  • Position the ray pieces with the longest piece in the center to the shorter pieces towards the outside.
  • Align the notches on the ray pieces with the notches on the narrow placement piece and glue in place.
  • Position the rays to the wrong side of one of the cloud pieces and glue in place.
  • Next, position the face pieces on to the front side of the cloud piece and hot glue in place.
  • Cut a piece of twine 14” long and knot both ends.
  • Glue the ends of the twine to the wrong side of the cloud along the upper edge.
  • Align wrong sides of the cloud pieces with the top edges of the rays and the ends of the twine sandwiched in between.
  • Using a sewing machine and matching thread color, stitch around the outer edge of the cloud leaving an opening approximately 2” long.
  • Insert batting through the opening pushing it to the opposite end. When the cloud is full of batting, stitch the opening close.
