If you’re not the most experienced at sewing there are some great sewing kits available to buy that give you easy step by step instructions.
I bought one of the House of Zandra kits at a craft fair a little while ago and they are surprisingly easy to follow. They’re all designed for people who want to hand sew and as the toys are made of felt there’s no need for hemming.
The kits contain all of the materials you need along with a really easy to follow pattern – you can’t go wrong!
I bought the mouse in the top hat because it reminded me similar characters to those in the old TV show Bagpuss but they have a load more designs to choose from – http://www.houseofzandra.co.uk/felt-patterns–kits-72-c.asp
