Today I made a cute felt molang sugar holder. Do you have a tea or coffee drinking friend who could use the sugar? This makes a really cute and thoughtful gift to store your sugar packets. ;) And it's super simple to make!
UPDATE: Per recent request, I have added the template. Right click and hit "Save As" to get. ;)
You need felt cut out into these shapes, as well as matching thread and needle, and a bit of cotton batting.
For the ears, put two ear pieces together and blanket stitch them.
Once you're finished with the ears, put two of the cup handle pieces together and stitch.
Since you have 3 cup pieces, take one of them and stitch the ears and handle on.
Take the other cup piece and sew them both together, except for the top, so that you have a little pocket.
This is how it should look like so far.
With your last felt cup piece, sew the face on.
Lay the last cup piece on top of the two you already sewed together.
Sew the piece onto the one underneath it, stuffing it slightly.
And you're done! Now you can put in your favorite sugar packets or sweeteners. Since I only buy the large bags of sugar instead of little packets, I used the leftover Dunkin Donut ones I picked up yesterday when I was getting coffee.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! If you make this, do let me know! :)
love love love! MJ
