You will need: white, red, yellow, green, blue and red felt, black and red embroidery thread, embroidery needle, twine, white thread, pins, air erasable pen, toy stuffing and a pair of scissors.
Cut two raindrops using the template on page 94 and three pieces of twine each 50cm (20”) long. Sandwich a length of twine between the raindrop shapes and blanket stitch around the edge, leaving a gap for stuffing. Don’t stitch through the twine so the drops can be moved later.
Lightly fill with stuffing, then blanket stitch the gap closed.
Cut and sew three raindrops to each piece of twine.
Cut two pieces of white felt using the cloud template on page 94. Using an air erasable pen, draw the eyes and mouth onto one of the pieces.
Blanket stitch two circles of felt for cheeks using red thread.
Backstitch the eyes and mouth using black thread.
Sandwich the twine with the raindrops between the base of the two cloud shapes. Cut 20cm ( 8”) of twine and make a loop at the top of the cloud. Using white thread sew around the cloud, 5mm (¼”) from the edge, leaving a gap for stuffing.
Stuff and sew the gap closed. Diana is a London-based crafter who loves snapping pictures, drinking tea, going on fun adventures and crafting things out of felt. www.pygmycloud.com
