I asked him if he wanted to make a felt picture and he did, so I had him think of an idea and then make some sketches on paper. He drew a truck and cut it out of the paper, and then I helped him cut it out of the felt using his paper template as a guide.
The proudest moment for the small artist was hanging this next to his desk! He loves it.
I think cutting out the letters of a child's name in felt and then sewing the letters on to a plain background would look really adorable, too, especially in a nice frame.
Your sewing needle will get a bit dull from the felt so my tip is to reserve a different sewing needle especially for sewing felts (same goes for paper). Felt is so fun! I will show you what I've been doing with felt in a post soon.
