I made Tate a caterpillar clip to wear to her Very Hungry Caterpillar playdate this week. I was inspired by this, but changed it a bit to fit our theme.
... then used a hole punch to mark holes in my fabric. The hole punch cut partway through and I cut the remaining fibers with scissors.
For the head of the caterpillar, I cut a small strip of red ribbon, about two inches long ...
... then rolled it up, gluing with a glue gun as I went.
I repeated those steps with green ribbon and glued them all onto the felt leaf.
The little antennae were made from a thin strip of black ribbon. I just glued it down in a v-shape and held it till the glue was dry.
I glued the whole deal onto an alligator clip and that was it. A perfect little accessory for the playdate.
