Making the Felt Dolls (SAL Week 2)



1. Optional: Embellish the Felt Doll with any hand embroidery details or sewn on sequins or buttons. Be aware of age appropriateness for any embellishments you sew on.





2. Layer a Felt Doll, Craft Extra Firm Non-Woven Stabilizer and white craft felt RSO. Cut out the stabilizer and backing felt generously around each shape and pin

in place.






3. Using a white bobbin thread, and a matching top thread to the most prominent color on each Felt Doll, sew in the seam allowance with a shortened stitch length (1.5-2mm)




4. Trim the stabilizer and the backing felt to match the top printed Felt Doll outline with even, smooth scissor cuts. (Use a sharp, small pair of fabric scissors).




5. Repeat this step for all the Felt Doll Characters, Animals, and Accessories.
