m_diamond - well, i made a stencil of the shape i wanted it out of posterboard, then i cut that out (it took a little more than a piece) then i cut the felt, put a running stitch around the edge and stuffed it. Then I made all of the spikes, which took very long. i cut out all of the felt, stuffed then and stiched them. After those were all made i put on the blanket stitch and stiched the spikes in too. It takes a while, i made it over a few days at least a couple hours per day.
