Fun With Felt: Pirate Hook and Eye-Patch
What kid doesn't want to be a pirate? Fit them with an eye-patch and a hook and they will be sailing the seven seas in no time!
1 - Draw a hook with a large, wide base. Make the hook just a touch bigger than you would think since you will be sewing and stuffing it. Cut out two hooks.
2 - Sew The two hooks together, wrong sides together leaving the base and the tip open.
3 - Stuff with fiber-fill until stiff. Close end of hook.
4 - Cut out a large black circle and zig-zag stitch around the edges to reinforce.
5 - Open up the base of hook up to the beginning of the stuffing. Sew each half of the base to the center of the circle, as shown below.
6 - Sew a small, thick strip of felt (reinforce with a zig-zag stitch) to the underside of the black circle. This will be the handle for your child to hold.
7 - Cut out an eye patch and attach to two black ribbons or pieces of felt. I tried to attach my felt to elastic to make it adjustable, but this only stretched out the felt.
Ahoy, Matey's! Arrgh! Walk the plank!
