How to Make Felt Minion Pencil Toppers

Supplies

Instructions

Step 1

Download, print and cut out the free Minion pattern.

Trace the patterns on the felt, then cut out.

While we used a brown base, you could easily use two yellow body bases instead.

Step 2

Place the grey strip across the yellow base horizontally, towards the top.

Lay the small black circle on the medium white circle and then place the medium circle on the big grey circle.

Step 3

Place the 3 small circles together (on top of each other) and lay them in the middle of the grey strip.

Thread a needle with either black or white thread. On one Minion we used white and one we used black thread.

Knot the thread and draw it through the felt pieces from the back of the body base. Secure all of the eye pieces and the strip to the yellow body base with a stitch or two.

Step 4

Use black thread to stitch a smiley face below the eye, as seen in the photo below. 

If you used black thread to stitch the eye, then you can use the same thread for the smile.

If you used white thread for the eye, start a new piece of thread for the smile.

Once done, knot the the thread in the back and cut off the excess.

Step 5 

Place the blue square cutout on the yellow base. Match the edges along the bottom.

Then place the yellow front minion template on top of the brown base.

Step 6

Thread your needle with yellow thread. Knot the end.

Holding the pieces together, insert your needle from the back side of the yellow felt so that you can hide the knot in between the layers. Then use a simple stitch to sew around the Minion template, being sure not to sew the bottom straight edge.

We used a simple flat blanket stitch.
