Crazy Daisy Flower Loom Robot

To make this little robot you will need:

  • The instructions for making a crazy daisy monkey
  • Approximately 175m (200 yards) of dk – worsted weight yarn in grey or your choice of colour for the body
  • 6 x 3 inch squares of grey felt (or your choice of colour)
  • Some embroidery thread to match your squares of felt
  • A handful of toy stuffing
  • A big eyed wool needle, an embroidery needle for sewing the head together and a 5″ joining needle (or some extra patience) for sewing the head to the body.
  • Craft felt in your choice of colours for the face and little heart badge
  • PVA or craft glue
  • A 2 inch daisy winder or flower loom

Step 1: Make 43 grey daisies, winding the yarn round your loom three times for each daisy. Finish with a back stitch or stem stitch centre and darn the loose ends into the back of each daisy.

Put the body of your robot together, following the instructions for making the monkey. Leave out the tail, unless you want a robot with a tail 🙂

Take your six three inch squares of felt and
stitch them together to make a cube.
Stuff and stitch closed. Then take your joining needle and one thread of wool at a time and thread all four strands of the wool used to make the body of your robot through the head. Tie a knot at the top.
Cut your badge and facial features from felt and glue them together.

I used acrylic craft felt and found it was easiest to use quite a bit of glue but not much pressure when sticking the pieces together. When I tried pressing them together firmly the felt sucked up all the glue and they wouldn’t stick.

Stick the face and badge to your robot and you’re finished!
