  • Step 1:Cut two 8 inch circles from the fabric. Tip – trace an 8 inch plate.
  • Step 2:On the bottom third of the fabric face, lightly draw eyelashes and a mouth. This does not have to be perfect - that’s what gives the face character! Stay at least 1-1/2 inches away from the edges.
  • Step 3:Use a very tight and small zigzag stitch and follow your sketch of the features.
  • Step 4:Cut three 5 inch pieces of ribbon in each color.
  • Step 5:Fold ribbons in half and pin to the inside of the sun face at the edge; space about 1-1/2 inches apart. Sew at with a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
  • Step 6:Place the other piece of fabric on top of the face with right sides together and the ribbon tabs inside. Pin together and sew with a 1/2 inch seam allowance, leaving 2 inches open to turn right-side out.
  • Step 7:Turn fabric right-side out and fill with poly stuffing.
  • Step 8:Sew the open seam close to the edge.


  • TIP 1:Try making this project in a larger size for a cute wall decoration.
