How to make a Little Toy Rocket by Kelly Jordan

This little toy space rocket has a pocket on the front. This would make a lovely gift for a child. This project can be machined or hand stitched.

You Will Need:

  • Sewing machine
  • Stargazer Fat Quarter 5 Pack
  • Felt in the colours of your choice
  • Hemline Iron-On Interfacing
  • Ribbon in a colour of your choice
  • TOFT Premium Toy Stuffing in Hank Tote Stuffing Bag
  • Gutermann Machine Thread Kit Rayon 40 7 Reels

Instructions:

  1. This can be made any size and in either fabric or felt (I've used both). If you would like to you can upload the PDF template to your scan and cut and resize to any size you would like.
    Cut out your fabric. Using the templates provided cut your felt and fabric shapes and if you would like a pocket you will need to cut a piece of fabric approximately 12cm x 16cm. You can use any fabric and patterned fabric, so why not mix it up a little.
    If you want to use a fusible interface to make your project more rigid, you will need to cut out two pieces for the rocket body and one for the pocket, cut these a little smaller than your template. (I have used an Iron on Fusible interface) you need to Attach your fusible interfacing on the wrong side of your fabric before you start sewing.

    Fold the top edge of your rectangle piece of fabric over about 1CM as shown and press. Sew along the folded edge (I've added a ribbon trim). Position on the rocket front and stitch in place close to the edge of the rocket. Trim the pocket.
