Felix’s Lego Man Book Bag Hangy thing!

Lego Man drawing by Felix

Felix made this super drawing of a Lego man not so long ago. He asked me to make it into a hangy thing for his book bag, put some instructions on his drawing and I set to work.

I had a few disastrous attempts with different materials (in his drawing, Felix wanted me to make the man from fleece)  until I decided to make life simple and make if from felt.

I lined the felt so it can withstand a bit of pulling.

Here is the result!

The Helmet Comes off!

Felix had wanted some bicycles fabric for the button, but it was too big a print, so I opted for this nice square orange one instead.

His little felt helmet comes off.

His tummy is lightly padded with polyfill.

I used one of my labels to make the hang loop, it is behind his head, sewn into the seam. I forgot to add a photo of the back, or of him on the book bag, I will try to add these at some point.

I think he looks fun – I think next time I will use the embroidery foot on my machine to sew the details, as it looks a bit rudimentary, but over all I am quite pleased with my efforts – what do you think? x
