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.pygmy­
