Dalek Pincushion Tutorial

Materials Used:
Felt, black and brown
Embroidery thread

I used the paper pattern from gfoyle on deviantart to make my Dalek pincushion. I cut out the paper pattern and pinned it to pieces of felt. I did not cut the tabs out of the felt. I did cut the large pieces to go in between the body but did not end up using them. I only used the bottom piece. I cut those out and then embroider the designs straight through the paper onto the felt. I then carefully cut and pulled the pieces of paper off.

I stitched the top piece to the middle piece and then closed up the back. I stitched the large bottom piece around the middle piece and then closed it up the back. I closed the head up by folding the pieces over and stitching through them.

I attached the bottom of the Dalek and stitched up until I had a small hole. I stuffed the Dalek with fiberfill and closed the hole.

I pushed pins in all around the Dalek and used three colored ones for his arms and eye stalk.

Psychic Paper Needle book Tutorial

Material Used:
Felt, black and white
Embroidery thread

I traced around a small book I received from the bank to get the right size and shape of the book.

I cut out the cover and then cut out the three inside sheets (this doubles and becomes six).

I used a running stich up the binding of the book to attach the three sheets. I trimmed the white pages a little to make them smaller than the outside.
