Here is another tutorial for our free felt puppet pattern.
Begin by cutting out all of the individual parts. Everything is cut twice except the lower lip and muzzle. The mane dimension are in the pattern. You can download it for free.
Using a double thread of embroidery floss whip stitch all of the facial features to one layer of puppet body.
Cut the ears from the back puppet and whip stitch to the back of the ears of the puppet face. This will cover the stitches that will show on the back from whip stitching the color in the center of the ears. This will also work well when inserting the mane between the puppet layers.
Notice the layers for the eyes and the section of mane below the lion chin. The lower lip is also added and stuffed. Whip stitch around the muzzle and before it is closed add stuffing. This adds dimension to the little face.
Blanket stitch the two layers of puppet body together, leaving the lower edge open and blanket stitch separately. The mane was slipped between the layers.
French knots were added to the eyes to add a sparkle. Add a pom pom to the nose. This little puppet turns out so cute. We hope you enjoy this little pattern.

Here is a great free pattern that we would love to show you a step by step picture tutorial. This is as easy as it looks. This makes a great humanitarian project for women's shelters or just great fun for any child in your life.
You will need:
- Light brown, dark brown, white, pink, iris color felt or any colors you choose for customized puppy
- Matching embroidery floss
- Black pom pom
- Scissors and Needle
- Copy of pattern
Place the pattern pieces on top of the chosen felt colors. If you choose to have the ears be the same color as the body, you may tape the ears to the basic body pattern and cut them out as one piece. I like to make the ears double thickness. Cut the pattern pieces out right on the lines as there are no seam allowances.
Whip stitch the lower lip and tongue in position. I like the stitches to be vertical or right angle to the edge of the feature. The ears are double thickness and blanket stitched around the shaped area of the ears.
Next, whip stitch the muzzle leaving an opening to add stuffing. Then whip stitching the muzzle closed.
Layer the eyes and lids and place them on the face. Whip stitch each component using matching two strands of embroidery floss. Insert the ears between the two layers of felt bodies pieces, pin to secure.
Blanket stitch up and around the shade of the puppet leaving the lover straight edges open of course. I like to blanket stitch the straight edges to make the opening stronger so the edges won't stretch. out.
French knots with white floss make a perfect little sparkle in the eyes. We hope you enjoy this little patterns
