#dolls house makeover: miniature felt cloud rug {free pattern}

Everyone needs a cloud rug for their dolls house and this one is adorable and easy to make.

You will need:

Light blue felt (or colour of your choice)
White felt
Black felt
Pink felt
Assorted embroidery floss colours
Scissors + needle
Template which you can DOWNLOAD HERE

Gather all your bits and pieces together and cut out all your felt as per instructions on the TEMPLATE.

Position the eyes and cheeks on the biggest cloud to get an idea of where they sit. Refer the template for layout.

Using 1 strand of black embroidery floss whip stitch the eyes on. With the same thread add the eyelashes, eyebrows and mouth using back stitch.

Using 2 strands of pink embroidery floss secure the cheeks on with 1 cross stitch in each.
Using 2 strands of white embroidery floss add the flecks in the eyes.

Pin the cloud onto one of the blue pieces, refer to template for positioning,
Using 1 strand of white embroidery floss whip stitch the clouds on.

NB: At this point I decided to give my rug rounded corners.

Using 2 strands of blue embroidery thread place the two blue pieces together and blanket (or whip) stitch around the whole rug.

You can also make the cloud into a mini cushion for your dolls house. Just cut out two of the larger cloud pieces, sew on the face details as above then blanket (or whip) stitch the two pieces together. Remember to leave a gap to for stuffing and then sew closed.

Repeat as per the cushion and sew a brooch back on the back.

I would love to see photos of your felt cloud creations using my pattern.
