2.    Decide how you would like to decorate your Llama, cut out the pieces, on to different coloured pieces of Dovecraft felt and sew onto the front of the Llama. You can use different embroidery stitches to add the pieces, we’ve used back stitch and blanket stitch.

 3.    To make a tassel, make small cuts along a piece of Dovecraft felt, roll up and stitch the top together. Add to the Llamas collar.

 4.    Place the back and front pieces of the llama together and start to stitch around the edge.

TIP – start by stitching the Llamas legs, so that you can fill those first. Stitch around the rest, leaving a hole to fill the rest of the Llama.
