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.

How to Make a Felt Zebra Stuffie

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download our pattern below.
  2. Cut out your felt pieces according to the pattern, using scissors or a Cricut Maker. Note: Color of felt is designated by either a “W” for white or “B” for black.
  3. Sew the felt stripes to both sides of the body using three strands of black embroidery floss and a backstitch down the middle of each stripe. Trim offany excess felt that extends over the edge of the body pieces.
  4. Whip stitch the black muzzle to the head with three strands of black floss. Cut offthe excess white felt underneath to reduce bulk.
