Read all the intructions first before starting this craft.

Step 1

Using paper scissors, cut out a petal template, like the one below.

Step 2

Pin the template onto the bits of felt, or use a pencil and trace it on the felt.

Step 3

Cut petals from your felt using fabric scissors. Be careful not to cut the paper template with fabric scissors as this will blunt it. You need four petals for each ball you want to make.

Step 4

Cut out strips of ribbon in colours that complement the colour of your felt. You need lengths slightly longer than the felt petals.

Step 5

Using a needle and thread, sew a ribbon strip onto each petal using a basic tacking stitch.

Step 6

Blanket stitch all four petals together, but leave one side open to push the stuffing in.

Place a little stuffing into the ball.

Step 8

Place the bell in a small container (to prevent muffling), and put this inside the ball. Fill the ball with stuffing, trying to keep the bell roughly in the middle and stitch it closed.
