If you think bats are creepy instead of cute, then you haven’t seen our felt baby bat stuffie! With his orange heart-shaped nose and sweet, little bow, what’s not to love? Even his fangs look adorable!
This is a great intermediate felt project for those of you who know how to do a blanket stitch, running stitch, and backstitch. So if you’re a beginner, you may want to start with something simpler, like this cute little bear. The more you practice different types of stitches, the better you will get. And don’t forget — we are here to guide you every step of the way!

Baby bat, doo doo doo doo doo doo
Our felt baby bat stuffie is such a fun Halloween craft! You can craft him as a Halloween decoration along with our felt BOO banner. Or place him with your existing Halloween decor. We placed our felt baby bat stuffie in a Halloween tree that we’ve been using as a prop for years.
You can also craft this baby bat as a felt toy for a little one. Not only is it cute and soft, but your kiddo can have fun flying their bat around the house! Just follow the instructions below and let us know if you have any questions.
How to Make a Felt Baby Bat Stuffie
- Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pattern on the right hand side at the top of this post.
- Cut out felt pieces according to the pattern using scissors or a Cricut Maker. Detail scissors are recommended for some of the smaller pieces.
- Match together two of the wing pieces and blanket stitch together using three strands of matching embroidery floss.
- To stitch the vein details on the wings, use a double running stitch so that it shows on both sides of the wing. Use a fabric pen to draw the top vein on one side of the wing (see pattern piece). Follow the guideline using three strands of matching embroidery floss and a straight stitch, spaced evenly. Check the backside of the wing to ensure that the line is correctly mirrored and straight.
