Intro: 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).
*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.
