How cute is this felt chipmunk that Krista designed? A perfect end-of-summer and early fall craft, this is a great intro project for anyone wanting to create more 3D felt animal stuffies.
Because of the 3D construction and the details involved, we would say this felt craft is somewhere between a beginner and intermediate skill level. Just download our pattern and tutorial below, and be sure to reach out if you have questions!
Nuts about you
This felt chipmunk has sewn-on felt details for his signature stripes and a posable wired tail (made possible with a pipe cleaner!). For an extra level of cuteness, we gave him a tiny pine cone to hold. If you do go exploring for pine cones, you could also grab some bigger ones for your kiddos to make some adorable felt and pine cone crafts.
As with all of our felt stuffies, we recommend using detail scissors for a more precise cut. But you can always use your Maker or Cameo 4 if you prefer to use your cutting machine.
Skill level: Beginner-Intermediate.
Stitches used: Blanket stitches, whip, straight, back, fly, and ladder stitches. For more guidance on these stitches, check out our embroidery guide.
