Introduction: Make This Star Wars BB-8 Felt Keychain
Have you seen “The Force Awakens”? This easy keychain has been inspired by the droid BB-8.
What you need:
Pattern of BB-8
Cut out a pattern from a coloring book.
Trace the pattern onto the white felt, and cut out the BB-8 shape.
Trace the parts of the droid on the orange felt.
Trace the grey pieces, and cut out those pieces as well.
Use the hole punch to cut out a black circle of felt.
Cut a larger circle for the photoreceptor.
Cut a long strip of grey felt, and glue it onto BB-8's head
Glue on the black circles.
Make a smaller orange strip, and glue it on BB-8's head.
Trim the orange felt if the sides are too long.
Glue on an orange rectangle and an orange square to finish BB-8's head.
Assemble all the pieces for the droid's body.
Glue all the felt pieces to BB-8's body.
Hot glue a looped piece of silver thread, and then stick a small square of white felt over the glue and silver thread to reinforce it.
Allow the glue to completely dry before attaching BB-8 to your school bag.
