Now the eyes and mouth shape you drew inside the cat’s face on paper, use them as the marker to cut eyes and mouth shapes from white felt fabric. Stick these shapes on the top of one of the cat-shaped fabrics with the help of glue.
Cut a tiny bow-tie shape on black fabric and stick it at the right top corner of the cat-shaped fabric. Make 2 tiny shapes for eyeballs and do the same with these as well. Then, sew all these small pieces that you’ve added on top of the cat face to fix them strongly.
Take a simple plain hair clip, put it in the middle of the other cat-shaped fabric, and mark two points on each side of the fabric around the hair clip where you want the clip to go inside the fabric. Make a hole in the fabric jointing these two points and insert the hair clip into it.
Join the two cat-shaped fabric pieces together and sew them from 3 sides. Insert some cotton inside the cat shape to make your hair clip soft and fluffy and sew it from the 4th side as well. Once you’re done, cut the sewing thread and your felt fabric hair clip is ready.
