Work on sewing skills while making this felt rooster!


  • Step 1
    Choose a color of felt. Place felt in an embroidery hoop. Using a #18 needle and desired color of embroidery floss, sew the shape of a rooster’s body onto the felt using running stitching.
  • Step 2
    Next, embroider details onto body using more running stitching. Then sew sequins onto the rooster’s body using French knots.
  • Step 3
    Trim out the body leaving 1/8 - 1/4" border. Cut out a duplicate body (back), plus tail feathers, legs, beak, cock's comb and waddle.
  • Step 4
    Sew around the edge of the rooster, make sure to place body parts between the front and back sides as the edges are sewn. When only a small area is left, stuff with cotton balls or fiberfill and then finish sewing the edge.
  • Step 5
    To finish, use the needle to add a hanging thread.
