Emojis are essentially hieroglyphs, and if we can add them to a message, most of us will. I wanted to try making some of out of felt for my own crafting purposes. I made these to add to a clutch!
DIY Felt Emojis
I figured while I was at it, I’d stick ’em all on a clutch from the dollar store, and make the perfect pool accessory for this summer.
What do you need to make felt emojis?
- Felt in various colours
- Fabric glue (or hot glue gun)
- Black paint (for accents)
How to make felt emojis
Start cutting the basic shapes of your chosen emojis. I went with the heart that has starbursts, some lipsticks, a set of lips, and then created two: the iconic red sunglasses and a funky hand.
Glue any and all parts together, as required. I used Alleen’s fabric glue (an old faithful).
Using some black paint and a fine tipped brush, add any details you need. In my case I had to create the lenses on the shades, added some details on the lipstick, and created the lips.
Time to glue everything to the front of the pouch! I opted for hot glue here, but just because it was more final, and wouldn’t have things moving around.
With my DIY emojis, I’ve now got a world of possibilities! brb gonna work on my peach emoji.
How cute is this! I added a bow, packed it full of goodies, and super happy with how it turned out. I am totally adding this to my adorable collection of handmade accessories.
