Other than our felt dove that we made in December, we have not crafted a felt animal since last summer. Plus a new year calls for a new stuffie! Designed by the Queen of Cute, Krista, this felt skunk stuffie is somewhere between a beginner and an intermediate-level craft project. So if you have made a couple of our stuffies before or have some sewing and stitching knowledge, try it out and let us know what you think.
So Stinking Cute
How cute is this little stinker? During a recent team meeting, we decided that a felt skunk stuffie holding a flower would make a sweet Valentine’s Day gift. Craft this cutie for your favorite little one — or for anyone who finds skunks adorable.
Because skunks tend to live in forest edges and woodlands, we thought our felt skunk stuffie would feel at home with some mini felt trees. If you end up keeping him for yourself, you can also craft him some woodland friends! We have a felt raccoon stuffie as well as a brown bear stuffie that he can hang out with if you want to create a little woodland scene.
When you are ready to craft your felt skunk stuffie, just download our step-by-step photo tutorial below and follow along. The pattern is simple enough to cut by hand or you can use your Cricut Maker to cut your felt pieces.
