List of Supplies
- Felt fabric – dark colors
- Fabric maker
- Matching threads
Select at least 2 different colored felt fabrics for this craft. I’m using black felt for the wings (attached to the back part) and burgundy felt for the front body part of the bat topper. Selected black and white felts for the eyes. Grab the template cutouts and trace them on the selected felts. Use small sharp scissors to cut out the traced felts nicely.
Take a black circle cutout (small) and place it on a white circle cutout(big). Now place them on the top (head part) side of the front part. Prepare needle with matching thread.
Stitch the eye patterns with the front body cutout of the bat pencil topper pattern. Simply stitch around the sides to join them with the bat body pattern.
Use black thread to stitch the mouth and white thread to stitch the fangs of the bat, below the stitched eyes.
Happy with the front body pattern? Great! Grab the wings pattern and place it on a flat surface.
Place the front body pattern right in the middle of the wings pattern. Prepare needle with thread matched with the color of the front part of the bat. Start the stitch from a side and stitch towards the top.
Stitch all around from top to the other side. I did simple running stitch. While stitching towards the other side of the bat remember to keep a small opening at the bottom side so that you can insert a pencil through it. Done stitching? Tie a knot or 2 and cut off extra thread.
Wasn’t that easy and fun? Grab more fun colored felts and make some more!
