How To Video! Sew a Felt Elephant Family

Some fun news: CICO Books (who publish my books) have launched a craft channel on YouTube called MAKE. They'll be sharing crafty ideas at the start of each week with #MAKEonMonday, as well as behind-the-scenes videos with the authors and other bits and pieces.

This week's video features a project from my second book, Super-Cute Felt Animals: a tutorial for sewing a cute mini elephant family from felt.

Click here to view the video on YouTube.

The video takes you through all the steps of making your own felt elephant (or baby elephants!) and you'll find a link underneath the video where you can download the free template sheet.

You can subscribe to the YouTube channel here or follow CICO Books on Twitter or Facebook to get notifications of their new videos and other news.

The felt elephants family is one of 35 projects from Super-Cute Felt Animals: lots of cute felt animals that fit in the palm of your hand! The projects are divided into six chapters - In the Woods, On Safari, Under the Sea, On the Farm, In the Garden and At Home - and each one has illustrated step by step instructions and full size templates so you can get crafting straight away.

Super-Cute Felt Animals is available to buy from Amazon UK, Amazon USA, the Book Depository, and many other bookshops.

P.S. When the book came out I shared a series of free projects to mix and match with the designs in Super-Cute Felt Animals. You can find all the tutorials here.

I found your blog today and what a treasure trove! I teach elementary aged kids to hand sew and we always use felt for our projects. I'm delighted to find you!
