We love making felt animal stuffies and even have a dedicated shelf for all of them. And yes, it’s a very long shelf, if you’re wondering—they’re just too cute to part with! Our designer May made these handsewn felt giraffes to go along with our felt elephants. Just like all our other stuffies, they’re adorable to look at and simple to make. Scroll down to see what tools and materials you’ll need to craft these cuties.

You’ll want to work with good quality felt when making felt stuffies. Our designer May used felt by Benzie for these felt giraffes. And she sewed all of the details together with embroidery floss from Embroidery.com. 

After you’ve gathered your tools and materials, download the patterns below and cut the pieces out of felt. Then, just follow the rest of our tutorial to make your own felt giraffes. We’ve included a photo tutorial below, or you can scroll down for printable instructions.

When you’re done making these felt giraffes, you can keep them for yourself or give them as a gift! If you want more ideas, make sure to browse through all of our felt stuffies. We’ve got a ton of them! If you’ve made any of our stuffies before, we’d love to see how they turned out. Make sure to post them on Instagram and use the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
