How To Make: A Felt Cloud

How to make a felt cloud

Untitled 2.jpg

I have quite a crafty side and I am in love with creating! So I thought I would share a bit of a tutorial, it is the first thing I have ever filmed so keep that in mind…Here is how to make a felt cloud…it is an easy, simple tutorial and I am using white felt.

Here is how I do it:

Part one:

Here is what you need:

  • A pen
  • White/blue/grey Felt
  • Cloud Template (be creative and draw one!)
  • Scissors

Method:

  1. Trace around the cloud template on your felt. In the video, I dot rather than draw but that is what works better for me.
  2. Cut out your cloud, try to make the curves as round as you can (the rounder, the more ‘cloud looking’ it will be).
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the other side of your cloud.

Part two:

Here is what you need:

  • Felting Needle Pen
  • Felting pad or a foamy type sponge
  • Your felt clouds
  • Hobby Fill

Method:

  1. Line your clouds up and join rounded edges by stabbing with your Felting needle pen. Work a little harder on the corners of the curves. Keep on stabbing until all edges (except straight) are joined securely (stab like you hate it).
  2. Take the hobby fill and add small amounts to your cloud until you are happy with how full it is.
  3. Hold the straight edge shut and stab it until it is completely and securely closed (don’t let the filling fall out). Keep stabbing around the edge until you think it is all joined together.

There you have it! Is that simple or what?!

Let me know what you decide to do with your clouds and pretty please show me a photo!

Here is the video version:

Thanks guys!

Love Lil Xx
