About This Class

Create a variety of felt forest animals, from the instructions and patterns available through this class!

Animals include a bear, fox, deer, fawn, skunk, cougar, wolf, and owl.  You can choose one to make, or make them all :)  

Hand-sewing techniques will be taught -- no sewing machine is needed!  These animals are a fun project to work on in spare moments-- while waiting for appointments, riding in the car, watching TV, etc.  By spending just 5 - 10 minutes at a time, over several sessions each animal will be easily completed, and these unique felt toys make great gifts for children-- either individually or as a set.

Also included are patterns for two types of trees, so a large or small forest of felt trees can also be made.
