Let’s Make a Felt Rainbow Cloud!
These steps are meant to make the craft process easier. However, this cloud could come together in more advanced ways too. If you are an avid stitcher, use your creativity to make a fancier cloud. If you do, please share it with me!
Start by drawing a little cloud pattern (6 inches wide by 4 inches tall – ISH) then cut two of them out of white felt.
Sew buttons in the rainbow colors on one of the cloud pieces. There are so many ways to stitch on buttons. I like to use a variety in easy stitching projects like this one.
Stitch the two cloud pieces together (inserting a ribbon if you want a hanger). Leave a little opening to fill the cloud.
Stuff the cloud with Poly-Fil. It could also be filled with white felt scraps.
Sew the cloud closed to complete your easy stitching project.
