I made these cute felt numbers a while ago and decided to finally put them up. It was a fun and simple little project based on a similar project from Meg McElwee's book Growing Up - Sew Liberated. It's a cute little book with projects for babies and kids.
I love the embroidery thread boarder around the numbers. They're perfect for little fingers to trace the shape of each number. I used a spray adhesive to hold the number in place on the white piece of felt while I hand stitched around it. To get the chunky look from your embroidery thread you thread your needle so that you have two strands going down into your knot at the end, and twist the two together while you stitch. Now wave up the edges with some scissors. Then with a sewing machine, sew your white felt to your dark brown felt.
