Tools & Materials
- Rotary Cutter, Mat, and Ruler (recommended)
- Iron, Ironing Board, and Press Cloth
- Low-Temp Hot Glue Gun
- Felt – Light Gray, Black and Red
- Iron-on – Silver Glitter
- Fusible Interfacing – Extra Firm 71F and Craft-Fuse 808
- Stitch Witchery
- Quilter’s Batting
- Pencil or Fabric Marker
- Grey Marker (to match felt)
- Gather the tools and materials listed above.
- Apply silver glitter iron-on to grey felt before cutting, following the product instructions.
- Cut out the paper pattern for the sword and tape it together where indicated. On the non-glitter side of the felt, trace around using a pencil or fabric marker. Mirror the pattern to make the other side of the sword and cut it out. Note — you only need to make sure the “blade” of the sword is cut out in silver glitter because the handle will be covered.
- Trace and cut out the sword pattern on extra firm fusible interfacing, slightly smaller than the sword. Iron onto one of the sword pieces.
- Trace and cut out your stitch witchery. Iron it between the two sword pieces to adhere together. Trim the edges if needed so that the sides match up evenly.
- For the hilt — iron two pieces of grey felt together with Craft-Fuse and stitch witchery in between. The Craft-Fuse is a bit thinner than the interfacing used for the blade.
- Trace and cut out the hilt for the sword. You can use a matching grey marker to cover up any interfacing that shows. Cut an opening big enough for the sword to slide through.
