- stuffing (you can use fiberfill or even recycled gift tissue paper)
- ruler or measuring tape
- Make a shaka with your hand. Using a marker, trace the outline of your hand onto a sheet of felt.
- Stack two sheets of felt together. Cut both at the same time using the outline as your guide. You should end up with two identical pieces.
- Sew the two pieces of felt together by stitching along the edge. We did a whip stitch. (You can also opt to hot glue the edges together instead.)
- Pause when you stitching about ¾ of the piece. Insert stuffing until you reach desired fullness. Continue stitch until all the edges are sealed.
- Cut a strip of felt that measures about 6 inches long and ¼-inch wide.
- Bring the ends of the strip together and stitch to the back of the ornament
