Today we are adding to our growing collection of felt animal stuffies with these heart-melting felt seahorses. Our felt animal stuffies are our favorite hand stitching projects, and we know that they are great for kids and adults alike! These felt seahorse stuffies are especially beautiful because they are covered in pretty seed beads and faux pearls to resemble the natural texture of the animal. Time to get started!
Just as with our other felt stuffies, you will need wool felt, poly-fill and embroidery floss for each seahorse. You should be able to find each of the materials at your local craft store or fabric shop. We chose a bright pink and minty seafoam for our felt seahorse set, but these cuties would look adorable in any color. Download the PDF template below for the full materials list and instructions! Next, print the template and cut out each piece of the template to use as a guide for cutting your felt. Start by sewing on the button eyes and then move on to adding the embellishments with a needle and some coordinating embroidery floss. Follow the step-by-step photo tutorial as you craft your felt seahorse set!
