Step 2

Fold the fabric in half and draw the shape of a cloud on one side

Using scissors, cut along the edges of the cloud. Turn the cloud shapes around to hide the pencil marks.

Using some string and a needle, sew together the two pieces of fabric. Before closing the seam, stuff with cotton, then completely close the cloud.

For the snowflakes, string 3 beads and one stopper bead (to stop them) on three different strings. Then sew each string on the bottom of the cloud at different lengths
