Nursery Room DIY Project!
A few months ago I made these for a nursery room. They are made out of felt so it gives you a worry free decor item to put above the crib :) The koala was placed over the changing station and is used to hold the diapers!
What you’ll need:
- 1/2 yard of felt (per animal)
- sewing machine
- buttons for the eyes
- needle and thread
Place 2 layers of felt on top of each other and cut out your desired animal. (I drew mine freehand but those of you who might need a little more guidance you can try to find animal templates on google images.)
Place pins around the entire edge of the animal and then sew together the 2 layers with contrasting thread that goes with your color scheme. (if you are making the koala you’ll want to leave the top of the pouch open, and if you’re making the pelican you’ll want to not sew around the top of the beak so you have a storage pocket there as well)
Add the eyes by hand sewing buttons through the felt.
Now you’ll want to add small metal hooks to the back of the animal so you can hang him. You can find these at your local fabric store.
