Tiny Wool Animals

I made kangaroos! It was so easy, and they’re soooo cute! Here’s a video, so you can see all the steps, and feel confident to make a tiny animal (or two or three) yourself.

Steve teaches at Austin College where the mascot is the ‘Roo!

These little animal hand sewing kits come with everything you need, including a needle and 6-strand floss. Floss works, but I substituted Ellana wool thread by Wonderfil because it melted into the wool and my stitches looked better. You can also use Perle Cotton if you want to add details in places.

Each kit has the materials to make one animal but you can use the pattern to make lots of animals. Use card stock (EPP paper would work) and Laminate to make templates of the pattern shapes and you will be good to go.

Judy made a puppy for Bear who looks just like Bear’s dog.

And then she made two more pink puppies for Bear and his friend. She used a variety of Hand Dyed Wool scraps for the puppies and Sequins for a collar. Good idea, Judy!

Our friend Keri made Ellie the Octopus. She replaced the eyes with her own bobbles.

You can personalize these animals to truly make them your own.

We have a special Dinosaur Deal that has the Brontosaurus, so don’t miss that for your little paleontologist. Includes the Brontosaurus Animal Kit, the Dinosaur Land Puzzle, and the Giant Shiny Dinosaur Dominoes. You can still get them separately as well.

You can make cute couples —lions or cats or foxes! Charlotte & Felix, below, sweet!

We have so many different adorable animals, you are sure to find the perfect one(s) for yourself, and a friend! You can make gifts, or give the kit itself. You can give the gift of time to a child in your life who wants to sew with you. Click here to shop all the Animal Hand-Sewing Kits.
