All of the accessories are made the same way. Here is a brief outline of the steps to make them.


Step 1:

 Trace pattern pieces onto freezer paper

Rough cut out

Using freezer paper gives you the most accurate shaped felt piece. Alternatively you can tape your pattern piece onto the felt with scotch tape. The benefit here is that your pattern pieces become stronger with each use.





Step 2:

 Iron freezer pattern piece onto felt

You only need to use a warm iron setting for this step. If you prefer to use a hot iron then use a pressing cloth





Step 3:

Cut out

When cutting felt it is best to use sharp scissors that can cut right to the tip





Step 4:

Iron freezer pattern piece onto firm interfacing

Using firm interfacing gives these pieces extra strength & durability

I use the one that is used in bag making





Step 5:

Cut out 2mm smaller than the pattern

Using fusible webbing secure felt to firm interfacing with a hot iron, using a pressing cloth

The firm interfacing is cut smaller than the felt so that it doesn't show around the edges of the completed felt shape


Double sided fusible webbing not only adheres everything together it also increases the strength of the finished felt piece





Step 6:

Add velcro to backing felt

To check your velcro position on the backing piece of felt hold it up to a window

When stitching your velcro on use a matching thread to the velcro colour





Step 7:

 Use fusible webbing to secure the front felt piece with firm interfacing onto the backing felt

Iron to secure

Remember to check that your velcro piece placement is central

Use a hot iron & a pressing cloth here





Step 8:

Stitch all layers together around the edge

Use a slightly longer stitch than normal and sew close to the outer edge (1-2mm)

You should only be sewing through 2 layers of felt





Step 9: 

Trim away excess felt backing

Again use sharp scissors here and take care to not hold your scissors on an angle or you may find that you have cut through your stitching line on the back.





Step 10: 

If required stitch embellishment lines


Some of the pieces have extra lines stitched onto them eg the crease lines on the bow

When doing these you may need to increase the size of your sewing machine needle (100/16 or a Jeans needle) especially if you need to sew through the velcro
