How To Make A Felt Butterfly Pencil Topper
Print and cut out the template pattern. Trace them on the selected felt fabrics for the pencil topper. Cut out the traced felts nicely. The template includes 2 wings bases (front and back piece), 1 body (middle part), 4 teardrop patterns, and 2 circles for the wings patterns.
Grab the wing base pattern you would like to use for the front side of the topper. Then grab the teardrops and the circle-shaped felt cutouts. Decide how you would like to arrange them on the front wing pattern. Prepare the needle and thread to stitch them on the wings.
Once you are done stitching the wing pattern cutouts on the front wing base, take the body pattern and stitch it along the middle of the front wing base.
Now, place the stitched (front wing base) on the top of the plain wing base and stitch around the side but make sure to keep a small opening at the bottom end to insert a pencil.
Start stitching from the bottom side of the pattern and stitch your way up. Stitch towards the bottom, near the previous stitch but keeping a small gap between the starting stitch and the ending stitch.
Tie a knot or two, cut off the extra thread, and done!
