Felt Astronaut

I made a little felt astronaut for a friend's outer space themed nursery.

I started by folding a piece of white felt in half and drawing an astronaut on it with a pen.

I then cut out the shape so I had two identical pieces for the front and back.

I started sewing around the astronaut with a blanket stitch.  I took scraps of white felt and stuffed them between the two layers of the astronaut cutout and continued sewing all the way around.

In a few minutes, it was a little stuffed astronaut but she/he still needed some details.

So I took my black, red and blue Sharpie Stained fabric markers and went to work:

And in a couple minutes the astronaut was done!
