Hello, friends especially needleworkers!


Yesterday I only could make a needlework project because it took much time, but the result was soft and cute in blue color. This time i made a garden snail with the combination of felt and cotton fabrics, my first experience in combiniting both fabrics . And i hope you like it like I do.


Project Time: approximately 7-8 hours


Difficulty: Quite difficult for me


Skills Needed:

  • French knot
  • Whipped stitch
  • Blanket stitch
  • Back stitch
  • Invisible stitch
  • Running stitch

Materials & things needed:

  • Pencil
  • Felt fabrics in baby blue and soft blue
  • Fabrics blue and white stripes
  • Scissors (small craft scissors and a larger one, paper scissors)
  • Embroidery floss
  • Sewing thread in white
  • Sewing needle
  • Filling stuff (I used dacron fiber)
  • Pin

How to make it:


1ST

I pinned the stripe fabric from the back, around 3-4 cm width, the length was around 15-20 cm. Then with the white sewing thread I back stitched it. After finished I cut it off.

Then, I sew one of it’s side. Also it turned it up.

Next I put the dacron inside then closed it with the invisible stitch, roll it then sew to make the snail’s shell. The shell part is now finished.

5TH

I also made the top/upper body part with the same soft blue. Trimmed a bit (I made for they would match each other). After that I blanket stitch to join the left and upper part.

6TH

I then also join the right part. Then I made two black french knots for the eyes on both body side. Then I sew the shell on it. I hid the sewing behind the body.
