And yet another baby stash gift! I stumbled across these super cute baby starfish that crinkle! I found the pattern over at American Felt and Craft Blog. I enlarged the pattern a little. I also purchased the crinkle material from them as well. I have seen people use other household items in order to make toys crinkle, but this stuff can go in the dryer and is super crinkly!
I traced my pattern onto freezer paper and ironed onto my wool felt.
I then did a bunch of random french knots over the front of the starfish. I usually wrapped the knot 3-4 times to get some good bumps on the surface. Then embroidered some eyes and a mouth.
I cut a piece of crinkle material little larger than my starfish. This is where I deviated from the original tutorial.
I sandwiched the crinkle material in between the 2 felt pieces and pinned. I sewed around the starfish and used fabric scissors to trim my seam.
Keep all the crinkle material scraps. Can use to stuff another baby toy project.
