Avoid the chaos of lost bows and clips while creating an adorable puffy cloud wall hanger. Best of all no hammers or screwdrivers this fluffy friend can be hung up with a simple tack.
This cloud bow holder is the cutest way to keep those little bows, barrettes and clips organized. Just in time for back to school. If you’re short on time using stick on felt for the cloud face can cut the time down considerably but you can easily just stitch the details into place too. I’ve included an option for raindrops if stars don’t coordinate with your space.
You will need:
White Felt 1/4 yard or 2 – 9″ x 12″ sheets*
Scrap for face I used stick on felt in pink and black.
Colored Felt 9″ x 5″ scraps
1 yard 1/4″ wide blue ribbon for hanging stars or raindrops cut into 3 lengths. (9″, 12″ and 15″)
7″ – 1/2″ wide ribbon for cloud hanger – I used a rainbow print ribbon.
Two cloud shapes from white felt. Two cheeks from pink stick on felt and two eyes and smile from black stick on felt. Cut 2 stars (or raindrops) of each of the three colors. Blue ribbon to 9″, 12″ and 15″ lengths.
Place star shapes together and overcast stitch around the edges with matching thread.
Stuff as you go.
When you reach the ribbon area sew the pieces together with a running stitch to close. Repeat with the other two stars and set aside.
Peel off sticky backed felt and press face into place on one cloud side. You can also sew these pieces down if you’re using standard (not sticky backed) felt.
Attach rainbow ribbon at the top of the cloud as marked on the pattern.
Attach the ribbons as marked on the pattern by sewing them in with a running stitch. Sew remaining stars into place.
Hang and add clips.
