Tutorial: Felt Motif Designs

Posted by athenamat from New York, New York, United States • Published See athenamat's 19 projects »
  • Step 1

    Choose your design. I chose Deery Lou from the makers of Hello Kitty because my partner loves kawaii and it’s a forest friends swap.

  • Step 2

    Trace each part of the design that will be a different color on thin paper.

  • Step 3

    Glue the felt pieces to your base (whether it’s a dress, purse, pillow, etc.). Don’t put glue near the edges but rather just in the center to hold it in place. Let the glue dry.

  • Step 4

    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.

  • Step 5

    Adore with buttons, ribbons, etc. for extra cuteness.

    In this photo I hadn’t finished all the hand-sewing around the orange but I had really good light so I shot it anyway.
