After the huge success of our felt hair accessories, we have been desperate to design more cute felt projects and the current Back To School fever has given us the ideal excuse. It’s always a good idea for the kiddos to personalize their belongings at school and these felt pencil toppers do the trick perfectly. They are super-cute, simple-to-make and come in four different designs. Here, we are showing the apple design in two colorways, the cheeky little bunny, that adorable bear and the oh-so-sweet kitty cat. Each pattern is simple to cut even for the kiddos and the eyes and rosy cheeks are simply glued into place using a low temp glue gun or fabric glue. We used a simple blanket stitch around the edges of our little felt friends which, in my opinion, is a great stitch to get the kids started with basic sewing skills. What better way to get them revved up and excited about the new school year than to get them crafting their own accessories?!
