TMNT Embroidery Hoop Craft
The new Teenage Mutant Ninjas: Out Of The Shadows movie is in theaters! Have you gone to see it? We will anxiously be awaiting the blu-ray release to get it into our collection.
Fun fact, there are some shots from a town close to me Buffalo, NY in the movie! My son is so excited that it was shot close to our home a little bit. If you remember his excitement for TMNT and the fun foam paper craft of teenage mutant ninja turtles that I made, then you will be excited for another TMNT craft!
You can easily take these and hang them up for display, give as gifts or help an older child learn how to make.
1-6″ and 3-3″ hoops were used
Felt in the following colors: red, blue, purple and orange
Google Eyes in large and small sizes
Trim your fabric about 1″ bigger than the embroidery hoop. Take apart the hoop and place your fabric inside, pulling tightly and putting the outer hoop on and tightening it.
Use your scissors to trim the fabric from the hoop.
Cut about a 1.5″ x 9″ piece of red felt for the mask. Trim the mask to fit onto the front of the hoop. You can use the hoop as a template and lightly trace the shape onto the felt.
Affix the mask to one edge of the hoop by applying a thin layer of hot glue. (Affix the angled end first.)
Cut the opposite end of the red felt into a v shape. Glue the v shape together and then to the hoop.
Follow by affixing the eyes with hot glue.
Repeat with the remaining hoops and masks, and display as desired!
You could certainly add a mouth or smile with a black permanent marker.
