Ahoy matey's! Yer be findin' everythin' yer be needin' to make yer very own pirates eye patch! It might be a dress-up party. It might be for fun. Any excuse to make this convincing pirate eye patch!


Step 1:

Print the downloadable eye patch template below or draw your own onto paper. Cut out the template and trace around the shape onto your black felt.

Step 2:

Cut out your felt shape.

Step 3:

Fold your felt patch in half and give it a small snip on both ends, a few millimetres from the edge. Just enough to feed the ribbon through.

Step 4:

Firstly measure how much ribbon you need by placing around your head to where both ends meet in front of your eyes. Mark this position with your fingers, then allow a little extra, and cut. Feed your ribbon through the holes one end at a time. Tie a knot at the back. You can always adjust by making a new know and cutting the excess ribbon if needed.

Step 5:

Use the white 3D paint to create stitch lines around the edge of your patch.

Step 6:

Aarrgh! Now be off young scallywag, pirate duties are afoot!
