I love doing crafts but hardly have the time to do so, but a few days ago I wanted something awesome to work on and I thought about Felt Craft Projects. It’s the perfect craft for people like me who love to cut, glue and sew lol! Since my son love Pandas, I decided that it’s going to be my first project. ┬áThe great thing about felt craft projects is that you can use your design for lots of other projects.

Felt Craft Projects: Panda Crafts

Materials:

  • Craft Felt black and white
  • scissors
  • cutter
  • glue gun
  • needle and thread
  • key ring

Step 1: Decide on how big you want your panda to be. Once you know what size you want, using the white felt cut out two circles, this is going to be the face. Keep the second circle because we will use it later on.

Step 2: Using the first circle, I cut out 2 black oval shapes using the black felt and two small dots using the white felt. These are going to be the panda’s eyes.

Step 3: Use the glue gun to stick the panda’s eyes. What I did was to use the glue gun first to stick it and then I sew the white and black part of the eyes. This will make your craft more durable and you won’t worry that it will easily fall out.

Step 4: Using the black felt, I cut out two small circles that will serve as ears for the panda. And I sew it in place.

Step 5: Using black thread, I sew the nose and mouth part of the panda. The nose is a small inverted triangle.

Step 6: I cut out the the body part, arms and feet. My tip is for you to draw these parts in a paper first so you can determine the size that will be proportional to he head of the panda. See the picture above for the shape that I used. Remember to cut out two identical body shape using the white felt, and keep the second one because we will use it later on.

Step 7: Sew the arms and feet to the body part.

Step 8: Now is the time to connect the body to the head. I used the glue gun to hold it in place.

Step 9: This part is optional. If you want to use the panda as key ring, you need to cut out a rectangular shape using the black felt. Glue it at the back, this will be the holder.

Step 10: Remember the face circle and body shape that I asked you to keep earlier. I used those to cover the back part of the panda. Just glue it in place.

Step 11: Using white thread, do  blanket stitch around the panda. You can do it by section, the face part first, the body and then I also stitched around the ears, arms and feet part.

    Thank you for providing the instructions to this fun project. My Nieces are visiting this coming weekend and I am going to get the materials to make this craft with them. I think the panda bear would be a cute addition to their back packs or as a key chain. Please keep up the terrific blogging.

    This is such a cute idea! I wish my kids weren’t already grown…I remember when they were in Elementary school, I would make crafts for their Holiday parties. They weren’t quite as easy as these seem to be! I love how easy they are, plus they look great! Also, they don’t seem to be very expensive. That is my kind of craft! Inexpensive and looks great! Thank you!
