Workshop Wednesday # 8 - How to appliqué using felt

I love working with felt as it comes in great colours, doesn't fray when you cut it and is a great fabric for children to start crafting with. This is a simple tutorial on how to appliqué a motif in felt that I use with my year sevens at school.

First cut two pieces of felt. One for the background and one a simple motif.

Sew around the motif with a running stitch using embroidery thread that you have secured on the back of the fabric.

If you wish to you could use a blanket stitch. Tutorial can be found here -

Once the motif is attached you could use it to make a badge, key ring, bag charm etc.
