1. Prepare the Monstera pattern above. We provided a couple of different sizes but you can scale the pattern to the size you want. Print the pattern onto copy paper - to cut out and pin on the felt - or freezer paper. Read more about the freezer paper method here. Use the SVG pattern with a Cricut Maker.

2. Cut out felt pieces. Save the scraps for a later step.
