I've created a new pattern for you and it's available in my etsy shop today!
These pretty hanging lanterns are completely hand sewn from felt. This pattern is a bit more advanced than my other ones, but the instructions are easy to follow. If you really like hand sewing like I do, or don't have a machine, this pattern is for you. These lanterns make perfect decorations for parties or every day, and great gifts as well.
This pattern will give you instructions to make the two lanterns pictured, one round style and one box style, which is hollow and collapsible just like a real paper lantern.
I hope you like this pattern, I had fun making them myself! If you stitch these up, please post your photos in the Doodle Stitching flickr group, I'd love to see them. And keep an eye out for my next Doodle Stitching book coming out in October! It's full of lots more cute sewing projects and tons of patterns.
Have a lovely weekend!
