  • Step 1Create a simple duck foot template from paper, based on how big you would like your duck feet to be. Look to our design for inspiration or come up with your own.
  • Step 2Using your template, cut out 2 duck feet from felt.
  • Step 3Poke 2 holes at the heel end of your felt foot shapes and thread a piece of elastic through the holes on your duck feet. Secure with a double knot.
  • Step 4Repeat this step with the other felt duck foot.
  • Place your duck feet on your own feet to see how much elastic will be needed for a snug fit. The elastic should fit comfortably around your ankle.
  • You may need to reinforce the holes where the elastic is tied so they last longer.
