Even though I’m from Portland, I’m not a fan of any weather other than blue sky. In the summer, I can be a little more open to the idea of clouds in the sky. I still prefer these little felt clouds to the real thing, though.
I chose to hot glue some magnets on the back of these guys, but you could attach a pin to make yours into a brooch, or even use a bigger cloud template to make your own dreamy softie. As you can see, my stitching isn’t perfect, but I think that adds to the charm!
What You Need:
- White Felt Sheets
- Blue Embroidery Floss
- Fabric Marking Pen (The disappearing kind is best, but if you don’t have one you can use a regular pen, but use thin lines)
- Tapestry Needle
- Fiberfill Stuffing
How to Make It:
Either draw your own cloud directly onto your felt or print out a template to use as a guide. (I just image searched “cloud template”).
Stack 2 pieces of felt on top of each other and cut out your cloud.
Use your marking pen to draw a face to help guide your stitches.
Thread an extra long piece of thread and knot the end. Thread it through the inside of the back of your magnet.
Sew a blanket stitch around the outer edge of your cloud.
Stop sewing once you are about 1 inch from where you started. Don’t tie off the thread just yet, though.
Fill your cloud with stuffing. Use your finger to poke it into all of the curves of the cloud.
Continue stitching until you reach your first stitch and tie off your thread in the back.
Show off your new cloud friends!
