My dad works as an ecologist and spends a large amount of time handling bats as part of his job.
The back lash of this is the fact he gets given all things that are bat orientated. So I decided to make him a little felt bat.
The template was from a hanging decoration I had bought one Halloween and it was traced onto the felt twice.
I used a running stitch to stitch the front and back pieces together and stuffed it with polystyrene balls - I have a MASSIVE bag of these so they get used for everything!
I also found some eyes in my box of everything crafty and stuck them on.
The finished article is rather sweet and could perhaps be used as a pincushion or a loop could be added as a Halloween decoration...
