- Wool Felt – Felt on the Fly “Dove Grey”, “Grey”, and “Slate Grey”
- Embroidery Floss – DMC “Pearl Grey (415)” and “Dark Pewter Grey (3799)”
- Gather tools and materials.
- Print, cut out, and tape together the paper pattern for the cloud shape. Trace the pattern on the wrong side of the felt using a pencil or fabric marker. Cut out 2 pieces of felt for the front and back of the cloud. We cut a dark grey for the back, and a lighter grey for the front.
- Cut out felt pieces for the face according to pattern, cutting with small detail scissors.
- Position the eyes and mouth on the front of the cloud. Whip stitch into place using 1 strand of matching embroidery floss.
- Whip stitch on the blush just under the eyes using 1 strand of matching embroidery floss.
- Pin together the front and back of the cloud. Starting from the bottom, blanket stitch the two pieces together using 3 strands of matching embroidery floss.
- Continue blanket stitching all the way around the outer edge of the cloud. Stuff with plenty of poly-fill.
- Finish blanket stitching closed. Poke the needle and end of thread into the seam of the pillow and out the back, snipping the end close to the felt.
- Fluff out the pillow evenly.
