I originally made this as a nursery decoration, but realized how great it would be as a photography prop, too!  So simple to create.



Supplies
Paper (I reused scraps of wrapping paper)
Pencil
Scissors
Felt in two colors (I used white and red, obviously)
Pins
Thread
Polyfill
Twine, yarn or ribbon for hanging

Steps

Create your happy cloud pattern.  Just doodle it out in a random, happy fashion.  It helps, if you also use a happy pencil.  Mine has cartoon popsicles on it.


Cut out the cloud pattern.


Pin the pattern to the felt.


Cut out the felt cloud x 2 (one for front and one for back).


Pin the two sides of the cloud together (right sides out, as you will not be inverting this piece like a traditional pillow).


Sew.  Sew.  Sew.


As you get near the end, stop and stuff the cloud with polyfill.  Finish sewing it.


Hearts!

Same concept as the cloud.  Create a pattern.  Pin it to the felt.


Cut out the felt hearts.  Repeat as many times as your little heart desires. Wink


Sew 'em together!  Insert the ribbon, yarn or twine and sew right over it.


Don't forget to stop and stuff them with polyfill before you finish sewing the perimeter. 


Attach the heart/raindrop strands to your cloud however you'd like.  A simple stitch would do the trick.  I just safety pinned mine to the back, so I can change the arrangement and length for photos.  baby.sweets4ever has also requested a variety of different drops (blue & green drops, stars, etc.), so I'll be able to easily mix it up!  How cute would this be with those really big plastic teardrop "gemstones"?  I bet it would make beautiful rainbow prisms all over the room! Smiley

Enjoy! Smiley

I think I need a few of these hanging around my craft room! It reminds me of the puffy clouds on Andy's wall paper in Toy Story... or the sweet puffy clouds in the intro of The Simpsons!

Thank you for sharing the tutorial!  Smiley

That's really cute and not overly intimidating for a non-sewer like me.
