DIY Felt Stethoscope

 My lil gal loves all things Doc McStuffins. We've made a Big Book of Boo Boos, Lambie Tail Treats & Boo Boo Stickers. So to add to her doctors kit, I created a felt stethoscope. Now she can perform check-ups on all her toys!

 What you'll need:
Plastic headband
1 foot of ribbon (shorten if needed to insure ribbon can't be wrapped around child's neck)
2 - 2" x 5" Red felt for ears (extra for hearts)
2 - 3" Ivory felt circle
1" x 3" Tan felt rectangle
Brown permanent marker
Hot glue gun
Needle and thread

Wrap the ends of the headbands with felt strips and hot glue. Finish by adding glue and pinching to seal off end of headband. The felt ends should be large enough to fit over the ears and not in the ear canal at all. If necessary, add more felt to thicken.

Using the hot glue gun, attach heart to small band-aid center. Using the brown marker, add dots for a finishing touch. Attach band-aid to one of stethoscope circles with hot glue.

Loop one ribbon end over headband and attach with hot glue. Using the other end of the ribbon, attach to the back felt circle.

Place stethoscope top (with band-aid) on top of the back felt circle and stitch where ribbon meets with a blanket stitch. Stuff with Poly-fil & close with blanket stitch.

(I had to make 20 of these & completely forgot to take photos as I made them. If you have any questions, please ask!)

 The Doc is in!
