Note: I originally published this tutorial in my portfolio, but over the next little while I'll be working on re-publishing these tutorials here just to simplify things and keep it all together.
- A wooden peg person (1" wide x 2 1/2" tall)
- White lace (2 3/4" wide x 1 1/2" tall)
- Red quilting cotton (4" wide x 2 1/2" tall)
- Bakers twine
- A thimble
- Gingham (2" wide x 2" tall)
- A small brown pom pom
Not pictured: hot glue gun and glue sticks, sewing machine and thread, sewing scissors, pinking shears, rotary cutting supplies
Wrap lace around body, add another dab of hot glue, and attach remaining top corner of lace at neck.
With the right side facing up, edgestitch (sew 1/8" from the fold) along the folded edge.
Fold the hood in half, wrong sides together.
Use pinking shears to trim the remaining raw edges and round the corners.
Use bakers twine to tie the hood in place at neck. Pull twine tight and secure with a square knot.
Trim twine ends to desired length.
(See the rest of the tutorial below)
Gather the gingham around the pom pom until the pom pom is fully enclosed.
Stuff the raw edges of the gingham into the bottom of the thimble.
