One of the most popular fabrics around is felt. That's because it's soft, is available in lots of colors, is easy to cut, sew, and work with, and it's inexpensive. What could be more ideal than that? There are also a lot of sewing projects that use felt.
For this collection, we decided to combine two of our favorite things: felt and animals. Nothing is better than a cute sewn animal toy, ornament, or piece of decor and AllFreeSewing has some of the best available. You'll see for yourself on this page, Our 36 Favorite Felt Animal Patterns.
Honestly, it was so difficult to narrow it down to even 36 of our favorites but we think every one of these cute felt animal patterns chosen here is a gem.
This collection is sorted into four main sections: toys, ornaments, accessories, and home decor. There is so much going on in each of these sections including finger puppets, games, costumes, pillows, and holiday projects.
Most of these free felt animal patterns are aimed at the kiddos but there are several things adults will enjoy making and displaying or using. No matter your age, who doesn't love animals?
