Essentials
  1. Felt: coloured, white
  2. Fabric, blue patterned
  3. Thread, various colours
  4. Twine, coloured, 15cm
  5. Wooden embroidery hoop
  6. Interfacing, iron-on
  7. Fabric glue

    1 Draw around the inside ring of an embroidery hoop onto iron-on-interfacing, then cut an inch around the outside of that line, to create a larger circle. Iron the interfacing onto the back of patterned fabric and cut out the bigger shape.

    2 Using the template, draw and cut out each shape from felt. Lay the pieces in place on the circle, using the hoop as a frame.

    3 Pin or glue the shapes in place, then machine sew using various coloured threads. Add the clouds to each end of the rainbow, and stitch in place.

    4 Press the piece, then insert it into the hoop. Pull the fabric tightly, then use the metal fixture to secure it.

    5 Once you are happy with the positioning trim any excess threads, then add a piece of twine to the hoop for hanging.
