A Unicorn is Born

Designed by Krista, she created this brand-new pattern for our felt unicorn kit in the shop. And we have now made it available for our members to download! You can still get the kit if you need all of the materials we used, but of course you can always personalize this craft project by choosing your own felt colors and embroidery floss.

If you are making this felt unicorn for a little one who loves unicorns, you might also want to craft some unicorn wall art, our fairytale finger puppets, or a felt stick unicorn for them to ride around on. 

Skill level: Intermediate

Embroidery stitches used: Whipstitch, blanket stitch, chain stitch, and straight stitch. For more guidance on these stitches, check out our free embroidery guide.

How to Make a Felt Unicorn

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pattern on the right hand side at the top of this post.
  2. Cut out felt according to pattern, using either your scissors (recommended) or your cutting machine (optional).
  3. Sew the legs to the underside piece using 2 strands of the white lavender 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.
  4. Repeat for all of the legs.
