I originally made this as a nursery decoration, but realized how great it would be as a photography prop, too!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)
Felt in two colors (I used white and red, obviously)
Twine, yarn or ribbon for hangingSteps
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.
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!
