Made with dreamy pastel felt colors and embellished with a starry night sky, this felt pegasus stuffie is perfect for our July celestial theme. She also has some fabulous wavy hair and, of course, strong yet delicate wings to help her fly.
This is a great intermediate project that requires some patience and attention to detail when sewing up the mane. Some knowledge of 3D stuffed animal construction and basic embroidery skills such as straight stitches and french knots will also help.
My Little Pegasus
Our designer Krista held up this felt pegasus stuffie during a recent team meeting, and we can’t get over how cute it is! It reminds us of the My Little Pony horses that some of us played with when we were young, but maybe a little more magical.
When you’re ready to craft your felt pegasus, just follow the instructions below. As with all of our felt stuffies, we recommend using detail scissors, but you can always use a Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo 4 to cut your felt pieces. Another tip for this project is to get a soft chunky yarn for the hair.

How to Make a Felt Pegasus
- Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pegasus pattern below.
- Cut out felt according to the pattern using a Cricut Maker/Silhouette Cameo 4 or scissors.
- Sew the legs to the underside piece using two strands of light blue embroidery floss and a whip stitch, working from what will be the inside of the legs. Match and follow the curve of the leg openings, and ensure that the legs are facing the right way.
- Repeat for all of the legs.

Hi there, I am planning on doing your felt dragon for my son and the Pegasus for my daughter. However, I would like to do the Pegasus in purple colors. Is there any chance you could recommend which colors of felt and thread I should use to achieve that?
I love the combination of Amethyst and Wisteria. They are dusty similar to the greens of the dragon. Both of these have the floss color match listed in the product description. Share photos when you are done!
How do you keep the Legs so straight? My keep bowing outward.
This is why we love the stuffing tool. If you pack polyfil in the legs tightly, it will make the legs stay straight.
Thanks so much!
Glad you like it!
How do you do the hair
