Instructions for Week 2


  1. Carefully cut each bat on the outer cutlines.

  2. Layer a bat with Craft Extra Firm Non-Woven Stabilizer and black craft felt with right sides out. Pin in place and cut out the stabilizer and backing felt generously around each bat.

  3. Using a black thread, sew in the seam allowance with a shortened stitch length (1.5-2mm).

  4. Quilt or embellish the bats as desired by hand or machine. Trim the stabilizer and backing felt to match the top printed design with even, smooth scissor cuts. (Use a sharp, small pair of fabric scissors.)

  5. Place (2) small grommets or buttonhole stitches at the top edge of each bat wing, spaced about 1" apart. Puncture the hole with a sharp, pointed tool. Repeat this process for each Bat Wing.


6. Cut the string or ribbon to the desired garland length. Tie a knot at one end, leaving approximately 9" length. Alternate stringing Bats and felt balls. Tie a knot at the end to secure. Note: You can tie knots between items to keep them from shifting.
