Hello there! Haven’t been posting regularly for the last 2 months! But hoping to post regularly from now so I thought of starting the week with a cute, easy and fun craft project!

Cutting the Patterns
The patterns for this pencil topper is very simple. Select the felt you would like for the cloud patterns and the rainbow stripes. I’m using white for the cloud and for the rainbow pattern I’m using red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. Simply trace the template patterns on the selected felt fabrics and cut them out carefully.
Arranging the Patterns
Place any one of the cloud patterns on a flat surface and then place the rainbow stripes aligned noon either wider side of the cloud pattern. Stich or glue the rainbow stripes with the cloud on that part. Then place the other cloud pattern on the top of the rainbow attached cloud pattern. Prepare needle with white thread. Oh, but before that, let’s prepare the Kawaii eyes and blushes!
Preparing the Eyes and Blush
Simply cut out 2 small circles from light pink coloured felt and 2 relatively big circles from black coloured felt. I stitched small white circles on the eye cutouts to give the eyes a cuter and more Kawaii look!
Stitch’em all Together!
You can either stitch the eyes and blush patterns on the top cloud pattern or you can stitch; whichever you prefer the best. Now, I figured that you can either keep a small opening along the bottom side of the 2 clouds to insert the pencil or you can close them and maybe attach a small pocket on the backside for the pencil. Both ways work great!
Don’t forget to Stitch the Pocket!
In case you close the bottom side of the cloud patterns don’t forget to stitch a pocket on the backside of the cloud if you’d like to use it as a pencil topper. And our kawaii pencil toppers are done!
The fun thing about this craft is that you can also use it as a charm by simply attaching a looped string on the top side of the clouds.
Hope you enjoy the craft as much as we did! If you find this project interesting and want to explore, there here are more DIY Pencil Topper Projects for you. Happy Crafting!!
