Save those ideas for a rainy day.
Ok so not really a board! This was inspired by a pattern at mochimochiland.com. I made up my own pattern which I feel so bad about! However I did buy another pattern from there. So I didn't think it was right to share the pattern but there's a few hints.

Here is a <a href="http://mochimochiland.com/weblog/category/tutorials/">mattress stitch and yarn eyes tutorial</a> if you need some tips.

A big thank you to Anna at Mochimochi Land (who didn't mind me doing this!).

  • How to make a bulletin board. Raincloud Noticeboard - Step 1
    Step 1

    The pattern consists of increasing and decreasing stitches at certain points. I used 6mm knitting needles.

    You need to make two cloud shapes and twelve raindrop shapes. Leave long bits of yarn coming from the knitting to use for sewing and stuffing.

    Step 2

    Sew a mini peg onto six raindrop peices. I had these already in gold and silver, they are used for putting up Christmas cards, you could probably find them in craft stores and Christmas parts in shops.

  • Step 3

    Sew eyes onto the remaining six raindrop peices using embroidery thread, I used french knots to create the eyes.

  • How to make a bulletin board. Raincloud Noticeboard - Step 4
    Step 4

    Using the yarn at the top of the front raindrop peice sew the peices together using matress stitch.

  • How to make a bulletin board. Raincloud Noticeboard - Step 5
    Step 5

    Makes eyes on the cloud. (my cloud didn't turn out as cartoony as I thought it was going to but oh well)

  • Step 6

    Sew along the cloud and thread the raindrops through the back of the cloud and knot one at a time.

  • Step 7

    Thread yarn out the back and then back in again and knot to create a loop at the top.

    Continue to sew up the cloud peices until done :)
