When you only have limited amount of fabric.

This is felt, but this will work with any plain identical on both sides fabric.  If you cannot draw round the template because the seams are on the outside of the item, and the templates can only be placed a certain way because you only have limited fabric.  Stick the templates well down with sticky-tape.

Carefully cut round the templates

Cary-on following the instructions

Helen, who devised these sweet little deer's Holly and Berry gives a wonderful tip.  Place glass head pins where the eyes are to be placed.  I stopped making toys a few years back because they all ended up being called Issiah, because one eye was always 'igher than t'other!

Pattern for Holly and Berry can be found here
