Cut­ting out

Fol­low­ing the pho­to­copied tem­plates, cut one of each hair piece from brown felt, cut one face from the skin-tone felt, cut two dresses from white felt, cut a pair of wings on the fold of the white felt and four sleeves from folded white felt. Cut four hands and two pairs of feet from the skin-tone felt.

To make up

1 Us­ing small run­ning stitches, sew the face to the front hair piece, over­lap­ping the hair over the face. Fol­low­ing the tem­plate, cre­ate two French knots for the eyes us­ing three strands of black thread, and back­stitch a mouth us­ing two strands of the red. 2 Cut and stitch two lengths of lace to the top and bot­tom of the front dress. Sew the wings to the back dress down the mid­dle of the fold line in match­ing white thread.

3 Pair up the feet and hands and blan­ket stitch all the way around the curved edges. Leave the tops open and fill with stuff­ing be­fore stitch­ing closed. 4 Re­peat for the sleeves, leav­ing the cuffs open to stuff and fi­nally fill with the stitched hands. Use a small stitch to keep the hands se­curely in place.

5 Us­ing small tack­ing stitches, sew the arms and the feet to the front dress. Over­lap the face with front dress, and run­ning stitch the pieces to­gether to form the com­pleted front piece.

6 Over­lap the back hair piece with the back dress, and run­ning stitch the pieces to­gether to cre­ate the full back piece. Pin the front and back pieces to­gether and blan­ket stitch all the way around in match­ing thread, leav­ing the bot­tom of the dress open for stuff­ing. Stitch closed once stuffed.
