Trace and Cut

Download, print and cut out a number or letter template. Use the permanent marker to trace the template on to the top color of your felt, and then cut it out.

Assemble

Use the hot glue gun to attach the cut out number or letter to the second color of felt. Once cooled, use scissors to cut out around the edges of the number to create a thin border of the second color of felt. Use hot glue or the thread and needle to attach the layered number or letter to the pillow cover.
