I’ve now drawn and cut out all the felt pieces I need to make my tree shaped man. I made myself some templates out of paper and pinned them to the felt first. Normally I’m a bit more slapdash, but since I’ve not used this pattern before I thought I’d resist the urge to do everything freehand. I traced round the templates with chalk, then cut them out (being careful not to go over the edges) and luckily I didn’t have any mishaps. I still haven’t found any fruit shaped buttons but I might have a look around the local market later today and see what I can find.
