These felt beanbag frogs were inspired by the ones I used to make when I was a kid. Anyone else remember these? They were popular in the 70s! Rather than a chunky fabric version, I decided to use our wool blend felt to make two cute little frog friends with webbed feet. I picked different shades of blue-green for the two top pieces and a coral and pink for the under bellies.
To make your own versions, follow my tutorial below. And be sure to let us know if you have any questions!
Don’t Worry, Be Hoppy
Crafting is so relaxing, don’t you think? I always find that it helps me to be in the moment and keeps me centered. Even when I am just having fun with some felt!
You can cut the pattern for these felt beanbag frogs on a Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo 4 with the rotary blade. But the pattern is very simple to cut by hand, and we typically recommend using scissors for felt crafts anyway. The frog is stitched together with a basic blanket stitch and filled with tiny millet seeds. You can also use chia seeds.
I hope you have as much fun making these felt beanbag frogs as I did! I would love to see your cute little creations, so be sure to share them with us by tagging #MadeWithLia.
