Materials

  • Pull-down-style window shade
  • Blue Window Shade template
  • Scissors
  • Ballpoint pen
  • Light-blue felt
  • Dark-blue felt
  • White felt
  • Pink (or red) felt
  • Craft glue
  • Blue rickrack (optional)
Tip: The shade won't roll up if the felt is thick. So if you want a roll-up shade, use the templates to draw or paint the design instead.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Remove the shade from the window and unroll it onto the floor or a table.

  2. Step 2

    Print the template and enlarge it on a copy machine to the size you desire.

  3. Step 3

    Cut out the picture of Blue and trace around it with a pen onto the light-blue felt. Cut out the felt and glue it to the shade in the desired position, being careful to glue the edges down firmly.

  4. Step 4

    Use the template as a reference for cutting out the dark-blue spots, dark-blue nose, pink tongue, and white-felt eyes. Glue these to the light-blue felt. Cut small dark-blue circles for Blue's pupils and glue these onto Blue's eyes. Allow the glue to dry overnight.

  5. Step 5

    For a finishing touch, add a blue rickrack to the bottom of the shade.

Tip: Choose a shade that is smooth, not textured, for best results.
