It’s time for another felt stuffie! Our designer Krista is an expert in crafting the cutest felt animals for you to recreate at home. And this felt zebra stuffie is no exception.
You can find all of the tools and materials listed below as well as the pattern and tutorial. This felt zebra stuffie is an advanced DIY project and is perfect for those of you who have made our stuffies before or who have experience with different hand-stitching techniques. So if you’re new to hand-sewing our little stuffies, this felt fox is a great one to start out with instead.
Earn Your Stripes with this DIY Idea
We got a request to make a felt zebra stuffie back in September after we shared our felt elephants. (Karen, if you’re still following—we finally made them!) We love when our members ask us to make something. So if you have any requests, let us know! We will add them to our ongoing list of DIY craft ideas.
These felt zebra stuffies also go along with our felt giraffes. If you’ve crafted any of these South African animals, let us know how it went! Or you can also share them with our crafting community by posting pictures on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia or on our Facebook page for members.
