- Two pieces of patterned fabric, measuring 30cm x 20 cm
- Two pieces of plain fabric, measuring 30cm x 20 cm
- Three pieces of coloured felt, approx. 15cm x 15cm
- Sewing machine, you could also sew this by hand
- PVA glue
Right sides together, place one patterned cloud and one plain cloud on top of each other and pin. Using a sewing machine (or by hand) carefully sew around the curves of the cloud, making sure to leave a gap at the bottom flat edge so you can turn the cloud out. Cut small slits all the way around the curves so they turn out neatly. Do the same for the second cloud.
Once you have turned both your cloud shapes right side out, use a pencil to really push out the curves to get them nice and neat. Now its time to stuff! Using wadding gradually stuff the clouds making sure they are nice and plump. Once done sew up the gap at the bottom on the machine or by hand.
Now your clouds are complete you can begin attaching the stars and rain. Use a line of PVA down the middle of one raindrop shape and lay the thread down into the glue, then place another rain drop on top to seal the thread in. The thread should be around 20cm long so you can adjust the length later. Continue sandwiching the thread between all the felt shapes using PVA.
Figure out the position you would like your cloud and felt shapes to be in. Using a needle and thread attach the rain drops along the flat edge of one cloud. In the gaps you can attach the stars. Using the needle and thread attach the second cloud to the top of the first.
Create a loop of thread at the top of the cloud so you can hang it up anywhere in your home!
