And... this was the end result
All you need is:
cotton floss and needle
poly-fill (for stuffing)
paper and pencil
Once the letters are stitched down, stitch the two cloud shapes together, leaving 2-3 inch opening for the stuffing. Fill the cloud with stuffing, then continue stitching to enclose.
- Start from the back, and insert needle towards you
- Insert needle to the left going through to the back, without pulling to tight, leaving a small loop created by the second insert.
- Pull the the needle through the loop from the back to the front, lightly pull the floss to tighten and complete the stitch.
- Insert needle to the left and repeat
That's it! If you've got a little bit of time to watch TV in the evening, you definitely have time to make something. It does not even have to be for a nursery, perhaps a girls room, boys room, add a little whimsy to your craft room, etc.
As always, be creative and Good Luck!
