♥ Day 1; Mew Felt Ornament
Hey Lovelies! Today is the start of Blogmas 2018!! That means, from today on, until dec 24!! A new blog with DIY will be uploaded daily! So 24 free DIYs for you this month! This whole month is Christmas X Pokémon themed! I hope you like that!? I promise they are all very cute. There might be 1 exception, that’s not gonna be Pokémon themed, but you will find out =P.
I will kick off this blogmas with a felt ornament! I choose to put Mew with a star as the first DIY. Let’s go into it! Shall we?!
For this DIY you’ll need:
♥ Felt in the colors Yellow, Pink and White/Blue.
♥ Sewing thread in matching colors to the felt.
♥ Sewing Needle.
♥ Trick Marker or anything else where you can copy the pattern with onto your felt.
♥ Fabric Glue. (optional)
♥ Acryllic Paint. (optional)
First off all, download the pattern HERE! And print it out (or draw it from your screen). The good thing is, you can make it as big as you want! Then cut out all the pieces. On every piece is stated how many times you need to cut it out.
The star you copy and cut out of Yellow felt, The eyes out of white (and blue if you decide not to use paint like I did) and the rest of the pieces you copy on Pink felt and cut them out. Make sure you don’t loose track of what pieces are which.
Sew the star together, using the Blanket stitch! (This stitch will use all the time) Make sure before closing the whole star, that you stuff it, to give it a little bit more dimension.
Then sew part A and B together of Mew. Then line up part C with part B and sew those together. You don’t have to do this very neathly since it doesn’t show anyway!
Now sew on the back of the body, part D, start by the head, by the ears you sew both parts together with a running stitch, you don’t sew around them. And stuff the head before you start with the body. Then sew the body together as well, and before entirely closing, stuff this as wel.
Now I used Glue to attach the remaining parts, but you can ofcourse choose to sew this on as well, I went for the quick option xD. Glue on the legs, part F, to the back of Mew. (Use the drawn image on the pattern for reference). Then glue on the tail, part E, inbetween the legs.
Glue on the arms as wel, just under the head, as shown in the picture.
Now it’s time to attach mew to the star, start by his head and arms, glue this on, in the position you like. Then glue the body to the star, so it’s won’t move anymore. Now you bring the tail to the front of the star and position it the way you like! Glue on when you are happy with how it looks.
And last but not least, glue on the eyes! If you didn’t use the blue felt and went for the paint option like I did. This is the moment to paint them.
With a lilttle pieces of sewing thread make a loop to hang it on. Just pull your length of thread through the star with a needle. Till you reached the middle of the thread, put both ends together and tie a knot.
And you are done with mew! How cute will it look in your christmas tree?! Adorable right?!
