This is a good project for Easter, but you can use it all year round! Make it in different colors and patterns!
Use Flocked Paper / Velour for the eyes: They are easier to cut in small shapes, they also have a ‘soft’ texture, and are not as thick as black felt.
Use a toothpick to add the white reflex on the eyes and the rosy cheeks. It avoids any mess and it’s also less prone to accidents.
Have a special pair of scissors used only for cutting felt.
