Felt Kartikeya

With Ganpati, Parvati and Shiva done, all that's left in this set is Ganesh's brother, Kartikeya.

1.) Cut out the following felt pieces:

Note: the body pieces and pants are all in duplicate.

2.) Using black thread doubled, sew two eyes and a mouth onto the front of the face, and red for the tikka
3) Sew the two duplicate torso pieces together using a blanket or whip stitch.
4.) Sew the feet pieces together with a blanket or whip stitch.
5.) Sew the two pink pants together using a blanket or whip stitch.  You will need to attach the torso at the waist to the pants and attach the feet at the points at the bottom of the pants.
6.) Use a running stitch to attach the hair to the front of the head and you're all done!
Optional: Add a yellow necklace.

And the whole family is complete:
