Crescent Moon Felt Magnet {Tutorial}

These little magnets are so much fun to make and give out as gifts. We made a green felt moon with a yellow felt star, but it might be cool to make them in all kinds of different colours. I used white embroidery thread, because I wanted you to see the blanket stitch, but it might be trendy to match the thread to the colour of the star you use.

You’ll need
Felt in two colours
Embroidery thread
Crescent moon & Star template

Pin the crescent moon template to the green felt fabric and cut out two pieces.

Pin the star template to the yellow felt fabric and cut out one piece.

Blanket stitch the two green crescent moon pieces to each other. Start at one of the ends so that later you can hang the moon from that end. Blanket stitching is very easy for kids to learn and it’s okay if it looks uneven, it’s their project. To learn how to blanket stitch, just head over to YouTube for some tutorials.

Once you go all the way around the side and come half way up the other side, stop to put some stuffing in one end of the moon.

After the stuffing, put in the magnet so that it is in the middle section of the moon.

Put a little bit more of the stuffing in the other end of the moon and sew all the way around. Once you get to the end, leave a little bit of embroidery thread hanging so that you can add the star. Sew a straight stitch in the star and go back up with the tread to the moon. Finish the knot and hide it in the back of the moon.

This craft is for a magnet for your kitchen or office and is not a toy. Please be sure to keep it out of reach of small children because of the chocking hazard.
