A few weeks ago, I had posted a tutorial for Making Your Own Felt Board and now I have several templates to share with you so that you can start cutting out some fun shapes! Today, I am going to share the Felt People and Clothing template I have created. Stay tuned next week for shapes related to Weather, Scenery, and even a few Sea Life Creatures :)
To download the free template, go HERE and print it out from your home printer. If you want your felt people to be larger, simply enlarge the printing scale!
Felt in various colors
Sharpie Markers in fun colors
Disappearing Marker (not necessary, but good to have!)
Let's get started!
Print out your templates:
Cut out the shapes you plan to use:
Gather your supplies:
Trace your shapes onto the felt (this is where I used my disappearing fabric pen....comes in super handy, but you could just as easily use a regular marker!)
Cut out your shapes:
I wanted to embellish certain shapes, so I used either paint or a sharpie marker. For this cowboy hat, I used a thin, black Sharpie marker to outline it:
So cute, right?
The little bitty shapes are more difficult to trace and cut, but you can do it~!
I embellished this cute little ballerina dress with some white fabric paint:
I even glued a blue rhinestone to the tiara for some extra "bling" and I added some Mary Jane ballet shoes:
Ready for Ballet Class!
Funky Peace Sign Shirt for the little boy, using paint:
Finished off the outfit with his baseball cap, matching shorts and eventually some sneakers:
This little lady is in her undies, embellished with fabric paint. Don't you just love the cute little flower? I attempted to give her bunny slippers, but that didn't quite come out as planned, haha:
And here are all the felt people/clothing lined up on the felt board!
Here is a quick preview to show some of the new shapes I will be sharing next week!
