Felt Cloud and Raindrops Pattern

Nothing says spring like a generous sprinkling of rain. Or so I seem to remember, since it's been snowing here for the last four days. Regardless, I bring you the first of my springtime felties!

This cloud and raindrop pattern includes two size options. The large size is perfect for a cloud stuffie or mobile, and the smaller size makes an ornament or a brooch. This pattern works stuffed, or unstuffed.

Here are some other crafty cloud resources you might find helpful:

The Bugs and Fishes blog has quite a few tutorials for cloud fans: first making a felt cloud mobile with sequins and buttons, or a felt rain cloud brooch using a similar technique, and more importantly, how to adapt this into a bleeding wound brooch for a costume!

Among the funky cloudy decorations for the home, my favourites are this Fabric Cloud Mobile using branches and beads, this Cloud Plushie cushion with rosy cheeks, and this fun cloud wall art frame.

Cloud brooches are super fun. I can't wait to wear mine. For some inspirational eye candy, check out these great brooches from A Morning Cup of Jo!

Next week, a raindrop with a bit more personality that makes a great ornament on its own, and combined with this cloud pattern would make quite a fun mobile.


  1. These are so fun! I love the way they're looking down! :D

  2. I really like these clouds. Looking all innocent as they drop rain on our heads!
