It’s time for another DIY project! If you like rams, sheep or if you need a new keychain, this tutorial is for you. I’ve attached a pattern that you can print out below.
The scalloped edges of the pattern are a bit hard to cut out. I strongly suggest using small, sharp embroidery scissors. I have a cheap one that I got at Daiso, and it does the trick. I also used tape to attach the pieces onto the felt before cutting. You can use sewing pins too, but I found that they were too bulky.
You can get creative with the colour of felt. I chose purple for the wool of the ram. Let me know in the comments section what colour you would use!
- pattern (download)
- felt fabric in the colour of your choice
- 1 split key ring or swivel lobster clasp
- lace trim of your choice to attach the key ring (alternatively, you can use felt)
- scissors (preferably small ones or embroidery scissors)
- fabric glue
- pen for marking
- sewing pins
- polyester fibre filling
- 2 small beads for eyes (optional)
Step 1. Cut out the pattern. You can also start drawing additional decorations, such as the star I made in the photo above:
Step 2. Glue or sew pieces B, C and D on one piece H. You can follow the template guide for the exact spot. I used whip stitch for sewing the parts. You can also use back stitch. Then, draw a face for sewing later on:
Step 3. Sew the beads for the eyes or use french knots like I did. Then, embroider the outline of the nose and mouth:
Step 4. Glue or sew pieces E with F (front legs) and G (hind legs). Again, use whip stitch or back stitch if sewing:
Step 5. Glue the lace trim or your material of choice on the front piece H with another piece H as shown below. Remember to slip in the split key ring or lobster clasp first:
Step 6. Use a blanket stitch to sew the front and back piece H. When you come across the ears and the lace, switch to back stitch. Remember to leave a hole to fill with stuffing:
Step 7. Continue sewing with blanket stitch to close the hole.
Step 8. Use blanket stitch to attach two left pieces of A together. Use the same method for the two right pieces of A.
Step 9. Attach the horns (piece A) using stitches or glue as shown below:
