1. Duplicate the shape on recycled paper and cut it out. Use clear plastic for copying irregular shapes. The camera is not a flat tool; sometimes you’re not able to copy the shape accurately. So it’s better to cut the shape slightly bigger than the original shape.
2. Mark the shape on felt by using disappearing ink marking pen. This pen keeps your mark visible when you need to see them. Wipe them off with water when you no longer need the marks.
3. Cut them out after finish marking.
4. Stitch your art on felt.
5. Sew the pieces together and you’re done!
