Felt Dog Bone Decoration

  1. Firstly, use the image as a guide to cut two dog bone shapes out of the felt.
  2. Now, thread the tapestry wool through the needle and tie a knot in one end.
  3. Take one dog bone shape and using a back-stitch technique, stitch your chosen name onto the felt.  We chose Jessie!
  4. Once you have finished stitching your chosen name, secure the stitch with a knot.
  5. Next, pin both dog bone felt shapes together and stitch all the way round leaving a 2cm opening.  We used a blanket stitch.
  6. Use the 2cm opening to fill your dog bone decoration with polyester stuffing and then stitch up.
  7. To finish, thread the white satin ribbon through the needle and pierce through the top corner of the dog bone.
  8. Voila! Your personalised felt dog bone is ready to go on the tree, or wrapped up as a gift for a loved one!
