4 Tractor Step-by-Step Instructions Cut out the pieces from the template, and then cut those out of felt (colors specified in template).Lay everything out on the page where you think It should go.Choose where your corn stalks go, and sew them in place.Next, sew the DirtMaking the “dirt”:When making the dirt, I recommend cutting in a wavy pattern on brown felt that will stretch all the way across the page, and when sewing, I recommend using black thread and making a “wave” pattern to give it texture.Then, cut the Velcro to size, glue/sew, and line up with the corn stalks you have already sewn down. (optional ribbon attachment)Write numbers on your corn (1-5)Sew/glue the other side of the Velcro strip to the back of your corn (optional ribbon attachment here) (optional cut out leaves and glue to corn stalks)Figure out where you are going to put your tractor.Cut the picture of your child that you printed on the fabric paper out, making sure it is a little bigger than the hole for the tractor door. (additional info about this step on next page)Glue the picture down where you decided the tractor door would go.Place the tractor on top of the picture, and glue or sew the tractor down, making sure to situate it around the picture you just glued down. (If sewing follow sewing instructions pictured in the template)Glue tractor window to tractor door.Sew tractor door to tractor as instructed in the template.Glue tractor wheels down.Place the “trailer” below the corn on the corn page, and sew down as instructed in the template.Glue wheels down.Glue clouds if desired.
5 Tractor Page Additional Instructions Putting your child’s picture in the book:Using the printable fabric paper, find a picture of your child that you think would work to fit into the tractor opening, size accordingly (I recommend first printing on regular paper, so you do not waste your fancy fabric paper)This may take a few tries as every computer & printer is different.If you do not have experience sizing pictures, Microsoft PowerPoint is a great tool (if you have Microsoft Office installed on your computer, if not, Paint is pre installed on most computers, and works well too)Optional Clouds –cut out of white felt (glue to “sky”)
