Measure and mark two 21-inch square pieces of cream felt (Image 1). Cut out with sharp scissors (Image 2).

Print both bat templates in the materials list in 8" x 10" format on standard printer paper. Cut out all three bat shapes and pin them to black felt (Image 1). Cut around applique pieces with sharp scissors. Remove paper templates and pins (Image 2).
