We get a lot of requests to make different animal stuffies — especially woodland creatures. A felt wolf seemed to fit in well with the rest of our September collection, which includes DIY crafts for fall and Halloween. Plus it’s Krista’s favorite animal! 

All of the tools and materials we used are linked below. Plus you can find the template and tutorial at the end of the post.

Who’s Afraid of this Big Bad Wolf?

This felt wolf stuffie is somewhere between a beginner and intermediate project and features four types of stitches — all of which you can learn how to do in our embroidery guide. We are here to help you learn no matter your skill level, so don’t be afraid to just jump on in! 

As with all of our animal stuffies, we recommend using a high-quality wool blend felt. Krista chose to use our marble felt that has a beautiful heathered texture, perfect for the fur of a fluffy grey wolf. She also added some seed stitches for more detail on the face and tail.

If you end up making this felt wolf, we’d love to see it! You can share any projects you make from the site with us by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram or Facebook.

How to Make a Felt Wolf

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pattern below.
  2. Cut out felt according to the  pattern using a Cricut Maker/Silhouette Cameo 4 or scissors.
  3. Sew the legs to the underside piece using two strands of the lighter grey 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 the step above for all of the wolf’s legs.
