EASY project, appropriate for beginners
Print out the free ghost sewing pattern and cut out the piece from the paper: ghost body and eyes parts.
First, fold the white fleece in half, right sides together. Next, position the body template and cut adding 0,5 cm ( 1/4 inch) for the seam allowance.
Finally, cut the pieces for the eyes from the white and black wool felt, with no seam allowance added.
Pin and then sew white felt circles on the black felt circle. Use very small stitches on the machine, to make it easier, or just hand-sew them using the running stitch.
Position the eyes on the body, pin them and sew them on using very small stitches on your sewing machine or just hand-sew them using the running stitch.
For the mouth first cut from the black felt very narrow band as long as the mouth are. Position the band where the mouth will come and sew it on with zig zag stitch as wide as the band is (the zig zag stitch should not be visible at the end).
Place the ghost bodies on top of each other right sides together. Pin. Sew together leaving the opening on one side. Before turning the ghost around through the opening, make him a funny hairstyle like the one on the picture – cut all the way to the seam, just be careful not to cut it through.
At the bottom first cut off the ends and then make small cuts all the way to the seam (see the picture). This will help with turning the bottom part around.
If you like, you can add a felt heart now, if you haven’t done so already in step 4. Just use black embroidery thread to sew it on.
