These are star belly sneech and friends ornaments I made for the Christmas Fever show. Wool felt bird ornaments that are so easy to make and can be made to look like a star belly sneech simply by adding stars to the belly.  Sequins and beads add easy flair and sparkle to projects like this.

I didn’t take any pictures, I guess I just figures they are just tiny little guys- I don’t need pictures of all of them and guaranteed I was in a hurry. Well… now I wish I had the shots of all 40 or so I made. So, thank you Hailey for sending me these pics, I really appreciate it.

A very easy DIY, you only need:

2 pieces of felt cut into the shape of a bird.

A small amount of stuffing material.

A tiny piece of felt for the beak.

2 pieces of felt or fur for the wings of the bird or owl.

Embroidery floss for sewing the pieces together.

Black beads and white felt circles for the eyes.

Sequins and beads for adding details to the wings and body.

Wool felt ballerina bunny doll here- handmade and complete with a tulle tutu. She is wearing a beaded necklace but no shirt. Bunnies can get away with it. Bows are tied around her ears for lack of hair making her even cuter.

How to make a wool felt ballerina bunny:

All in all, a very simple DIY sewing project to undertake.

  1. Draw the body of the bunny onto paper.  Leave extra around the edges for a seam allowance.
  2.  You can make it as large or as small as you like but around 18 inches or 46 cm is pictured here. This size was easy to make for sewing and stuffing aspects.
  3. Lips, eyes, nose and eyebrows were all sewn onto the face first before the front and back pieces of the bunny body were put together.
  4. After the face has been sewn on, place the two right sides together and sew around the perimeter leaving a 3 inch or 7.7 cm gap along the outside of the lower leg (an area that will be under the skirt) for turning right side out and stuffing.
  5. Turn the bunny right side out. Using scissors or a pen, push out the ears, legs and arms until they are fully right side out.
  6. Fill the bunny with stuffing- using the scissor or pen again to push the stuffing to the ends of the limbs. Pinch the stuffing gap together, hand whip stitch the hole closed.
  7. To make the skirt- decide how long you want it to be on your bunny, and how gathered. Using a piece of ribbon as the waistband, gather the tulle tightly as you sew it to the backside of the ribbon. Use velcro or simply leave the ends of the ribbon long to tie the skirt onto the bunny.felt doll DIY boy surfer doll
