Our designer Krista is on a roll with all of her cute DIY succulents! Since designing our felt stuffed cactus, she has created a felt aloe vera plant and now a felt echeveria succulent. Not only are we sharing the tutorial for this succulent, but we are also showing you how to make the adorable felt pot that it comes in.
This project is very easy to cut by hand with our PDF template. Or, if you wish to use your Cricut Maker, you can download our SVG file. Once you have cut your pieces according to the pattern, just follow our step-by-step instructions or photo tutorial.
Echeverias are one of the most popular succulents, so of course, we needed to make our own felt version! Our felt echeveria succulent is easy to make and a great beginner felt project. The main stitch you will need to know for this project is a blanket stitch. So if you have that down, this project will be simple!
If you want to learn how to blanket stitch, I go over that technique in my felt 101 video. We will also be sharing some how-to embroidery guides soon, so stay tuned for more stitching support!

Love ❤️ the outcome
Thanks alot for the tutorial
It looks fantastic with real succulent pots🤗💞💞
So glad to hear it!
I so much love the felt crafts on this website. My only complaint is how difficult it is to see the photo tutorial instructions. I usually have to enlarge them when I print them, but lose the quality. But other than that, love tuning into video tutorials, and making all sorts of beautiful felt creations!
Thanks for the feedback, Sarah. Print quality may not be the greatest since our tutorials are sized for web resolution (they should be very clear when viewed at 100% on a computer/device though!)
