What we need do first is to mark out and cut out our Squids head.. For this I marked out a 12 " by 6 " rectangle, and marked the midpoint... you can JUST about see if in the picture

Using the mid-point line, we now have to draw the shape of the squid. If we draw HALF the shape, then fold the felt over, when we cut out... It will give us a symmetrical squid!

So to get the typical squid shape, I drew around something round , then basically free handed the rest, I have gone over my markings in marker so you can see them in my pictures!

Then all that is left to do is cut out. Because I will be blanket stitching the edges, the seams will be visible, so make sure that the side you mark on is the 'inside' of the fabric, so that when you have finished your Norbert, you won't see your marker pen marks

REMEMBER TO CUT TWO OF THEASE PEICES, JUST USE ONE AS A TEMPLATE FOR THE OTHER
