Felt {two-faced} Gentleman

DIY Tutorial: Felt {two-faced} gentleman | onelmon

Hi there! Today I’m sharing a mini sewing project, a request by my sister. She passed me a piece of paper with her doodles the other day and asked me to make a 3D felt version of it so I went through her drawings and decided to pick this gentleman below (I think it’s kinda cute and easy). Think it’s cute? Then get the materials ready and read on! Let’s start sewing!

Halo semuanya! Hari ini saya berbagi tutorial jahitan simpel atas permintaan adik. Saya disodori gambar-gambar coretannya beberapa hari lalu dan diminta untuk membuat versi boneka flanelnya. Setelah dilihat-lihat, saya putuskan untuk memilih gambar bapak-bapak bertopi ini. Bagaimana gambarnya menurut kalian? Lucu? Ayo cari coretan-coretan adik-adik kecil dan coba dibuat yuk!

Step 4: Sandwich the other end of the wire between the two black feet. Repeat for the other leg. Place another piece of red pants on top and sew them up (or glue). Is it just me or does this remind you of Mickey Mouse?

Langkah 4: Jepit ujung kawat yang lain di antara 2 flanel hitam lonjong (kaki). Ulangi langkah yang sama untuk kaki yang satunya lagi. Tutup kawat dengan flanel celana merah dan jahit (atau lem). Serasa mirip Mickey Mouse?

I thought of making him as a bag accessory for my sister but you know how bag accessory always flips to the wrong side when you aren’t looking and so I made him two-faced so that we won’t see a funny faceless gentleman if it were to switch side.

Saya berpikir untuk membuatnya menjadi gantungan tas tapi tahu kan gimana gantungan tas itu sering berbalik ke arah yang salah saat kita berjalan (berlari) jadi akhirnya saya buat saja boneka ini dengan 2 wajah jadi terbalik pun kita ngga akan melihat boneka ngga berwajah :E

And here is the comparison, drawing and a 3D version. Oops, wrong direction of walking stick.

Dan ini untuk perbandingannya, gambar dan versi 3D-nya. Ups, tongkatnya terbalik.

    • I knoww, one of the reasons I picked this drawing is because of his innocent smile. I personally think it’s a cute gentleman drawing. Thanks a lot for the compliment, Elba :D

  3. Hi there little guy! All dressed up and someplace to go!
    Thanks for sharing your sister’s artwork and your
    project, he is a sweetie!

    • A brooch! Oh why didn’t I think of that! I made it two-faced because I don’t want it to flip to the back side when it is hanging on the bag. Making it into a pin is actually the best solution (I feel like banging my head to the wall now). Thanks a lot, Blanca!!

    • Thank you for the sweet compliment, Mette! I thought the wire would do a great job so my sister could twist the arms and legs in anyway she likes. Can’t believe it’s almost weekend again, hope you have a wonderful one! :)
