Choose your design. I chose Deery Lou from the makers of Hello Kitty because my partner loves kawaii and itâ€™s a forest friends swap.
Trace each part of the design that will be a different color on thin paper.
Glue the felt pieces to your base (whether itâ€™s a dress, purse, pillow, etc.). Donâ€™t put glue near the edges but rather just in the center to hold it in place. Let the glue dry.
Using the floss and needle, sew around each piece (thru all layers) with a coordinating color. You could use a blanket stitch but I thought it looked cool with just sewing a straight stitch thru the edges.
Adore with buttons, ribbons, etc. for extra cuteness.
In this photo I hadnâ€™t finished all the hand-sewing around the orange but I had really good light so I shot it anyway.
