  • How to make a toy. Gizmo - Step 1
    Step 1

    Take one long strip of felt/material that fits round the wrist plus a little extra. Cut a rectangle 9cm x 15cm out of felt and sew it onto the strip so it lies horizontally on the arm.

    Step 3

    Sew some Velcro to the strip going round the wrist. Make sure you do it on the right sides so they can attach. I put a few pieces of the loop side to make it more adjustable.
