Square Felt Farm Animals

(cow, duck, pig, chicken, dog, cat, horse)

I'm in love with felt, and decided to make some animals that we can use to sing Old MacDonald. I thought making them square would be cute. I think the chicken is my favorite.

If you want to make these, here is the basic low-down of what I did:

1. Cut squares out of felt. My squares are 3" x 3".
2. Cut out the eyes using black and white felt.
3. Cut out everything else the noses, beaks, ears, wings, legs, arms
4. Stitch on the eyes, noses, and beaks on one of the squares. Then stitch the smiles using black thread.
5. Put the 2 squares together and start stitching them together with a blanket stitch.
6. As you stitch, add in the arms, legs, wings, ears. 
7. Leave an opening and stuff the square with filling.
8. Close up the stitch and say "howdy!" to your new farm friend!!

The boys have had fun playing with these, and when we sing Old MacDonald, we put them in a bag and they take turns pulling one out as we sing each verse.


Those are SO cute! You are so creative! What a cool gift that would be in a barn decorated box. =)
These are adorable! They would make cute bean bags, too =)

Just found you from The Activity Mom. Your blog is awesome! We have a lot of the same ideas it looks like (esp. from reading about your home organization notebook). My little boy will especially go nuts about these felties, he's 19 months and just starting to make animal sounds :)

Interstingly enough, I think I like that cat best, although the chicken is a close second. :)

Made these as magnet pillows for my 1 yr olds birthday and she loves them! I used a glue gun and a super strong magnet on the inside so she can't get it off and choke. I also made a sheep and am currently working on turtle. Thanks again!

Or use some glue on the shapes and it could also become a one-of-a-kind dinosaur craft! No matter how you use it, this simple dinosaur activity will most likely produce some very unique prehistoric creatures!
