The cutest felt animals patterns to sew!

Felt animals patterns

My kids LOVE little creatures and creations to stick in their pockets and tiny houses that they’ve made, so I had fun compiling this list of felt animals patterns to sew. I included several free felt animal patterns too, they are in a separate section if you are on a budget! All of these would make adorable ornaments on the Christmas tree if you don’t have little ones to play with them, and they are a great way to use up felt scraps since they’re so small. Stuffed animal sewing patterns are so much fun to make and gift!

If you’re new to sewing with felt, you can check out these resource posts of mine:

I hope you have fun browsing this list, let me know if I missed any of your favorite tiny felt animal sewing patterns!

I would love to buy your patterns, but will not download a new browser to get patterns. I don't trust something downloaded that I don't know about and allow it to change my computer. I tried a few ways, and could not find any other way. Do you sell real books? Not downloaded ones.

Hi elizabeth! These aren't all my patterns, they are all individual designers and linked under the photos. Unfortunately these are all PDF patterns - you don't need to download a new browser by any means but you do have to download the digital file.
