Felt Moons

I have always been fascinated with the moon. As a child, I felt the magic of the full moon and as an adult I have observed its influence on my moods. I have been seeing some cute moon phase artworks and wall hangings around the place and it has inspired me to create my own.

Starting with some moon shaped cardboard templates, I cut out circles and moon shapes from white and grey felt.

I needed eight grey and two white circles, and four of each of the two crescent shapes to make my five piece hanging.

Then I sewed the crescents to the grey circles.

Once I had two sides for each of my moon phases, I sewed them together, leaving a small gap to stuff them with cotton wool before sewing up the gap.

Then I chose some sparkly “night sky” thread, and threaded and knotted the moons onto it. A loop at the top and it was ready to hang.

I chose to hang my moons in my newly painted studio!

    so cool – and there’s the perfect gap for it to fill too 🙂
    I got more interested in learning about the moon & her phases, fascinating. Do you know which phase you were born in?
