If you’re a child of the 70s, you may remember learning to sew using the old chipboard cut-outs. Here’s an updated version using free printables with fun illustrations and super cute hairstyles. Simply stitch them up and stick them up for super fun wall decor.
- 8.5 x 11-inch card stock (white or cream)
- Blunt needle
- Embroidery thread
- Printable templates (download here: Betty Bouffant, Hazel Bob, Ida Braids, Seymour Spike)
Download the printable sewing card template (download here: Betty Bouffant, Hazel Bob, Ida Braids, Seymour Spike). Print the template of your choice using the 8.5 x 11-inch cream or white card stock. I went with cream card stock with a little texture.
Cut out the template cards along the dotted line. Finished cards will be 5 in. x 7 in.
Take the blunt needle and carefully punch the white dots in each hair-do. Choose your embroidery thread–I went with contrasting colors so the thread would pop over the illustrations.
Thread your needle and start sewing!
