Mascot Monday – How-to: Ciao Ciao Ornament (Free Pattern)
In preparation for the holidays, I’m doing a Mascot Monday, where I will post up an instructional PDF once a week on how to do a simple mascot ornament gift. Last year for Christmas I made one for each of my friends and they were very well received, so this year I’m offering everyone these instructions so that everyone can enjoy them!
This week’s ornament: Ciao Ciao
Adios & Ciao Ciao are characters from the brand line Tokidoki. You can read a little more about the two characters here. These are in no way my own characters and all rights/etc go to Simone Legno. Consider these fanart and a tribute to the original brand. This pattern is distributed for personal usage only and should not be sold.
Sadly, I recently changed computers so I’ve lost almost all of the photos i had of the actual mascots once they were made, but hopefully you can imagine all the mascots from the few pictures that I do have, sent to me by nice friends who had received them.
Supplies Needed (all the supplies can be used for multiple mascots):
- 4 Pieces craft felt in pink, fuchsia, black and white
- 1 Tube crazy glue
- 1 Spool of coordinating thred
- 1 Package of stuffing
Step 2: Cut out the shapes of the paper pattern
Step 3: Use the paper shapes to cut out your shapes in felt. I like to tape the shape onto the felt with scotch tape so that it’s easier to cut.
Step 4: Follow the instructions on the guide:
- Glue arms (3a,b) and legs (2a,b) to back of 6a.
- Sandwich arms & legs with 6b. BS & stuff 6a,b.
- Add 4 extra-large stitches to bottom of 7 to create teeth. Glue 7 to front of 1a.
- BS & stuff 1a,b.
- Attach head to body. 6. Glue on eyes (4a,b) and nose (5).
