Introduction: How to Make a Felt Dinosaur in Four Easy Steps

Picture of How to Make a Felt Dinosaur in Four Easy Steps

I found this image of a little felt, stuffed dinosaur on etsy.com, and I thought it would be a cute craft for kids, minus the stuffed part. Here are four steps to make this little guy, using my own created blueprint. 

Step 1: Step One: Gather Supplies

You need some very simple supplies.

*Get felt in whatever colors, but make sure to get some white for the eye.
*Get some craft scissors (regular ones will work too)
*Get a hot glue gun with sticks (you can even get sticks with colors so the glue matches the felt)


Step 2: Step Two: Print and Cut Out

Download and print the blueprint that I made in Photoshop and cut out the shapes.

I only built the basic shapes for the body, hands, scales and eye. 
Feel free to built anything else to cut out and add with the felt.

Step 3: Step Three: Trace and Cut Felt

*Take the paper pieces that were cut out and place them on the felt pieces.

*Trace the shapes on to the felt (permanent marker is the best).
OR
*Place the shapes on the felt and cut while holding the paper to the felt.

*Then cut out the felt shapes.

Step 4: Last Step: Glue Pieces Together

Now it's time to build the epic dinosaur.

Glue one piece at a time until you are done and happy with it and VOILA! you're done.
Enjoy :)

Very cute! Do you think you could add more picture of the dinosaur? I'd love to see more of it!

Here are a couple more that I could get together. One is more close up. Hope that helps!

In case they don't show up (my computer is being odd) here are the URLs to see them i my library:

How did you make the tag for your dinosaur? It would be cool to come up with your own company name and put tags on all your dinosaurs and stuff!

A white piece of felt. Use a thin pen and draw/write whatever you want on the tag. You can fold it over and glue it together first, and once it's dry, glue it to the dinosaur. If you do the 2D version, you can easily glue it to the side.
