DIY Dinosaur Felt Room Decor

Dinos Dinos Dinos

Not really sure what you would use this for other then decor. I was trying to theme a little boys room with dinosaur stuff and did not want to spend much money. I had some felt and some stencils so I made some stuffed dinosaurs, sewed them together, added a ribbon, and hung them on a hanger. You could leave them single and give to a child to play with as small stuffed dinosaurs if you wanted. If you made them a little bigger they would be adorable pillows. I thought of doing that but have not got to it yet. We'll see if it happens or not.

Either way here are the instructions for what I did.
Needed Supplies:
  • Colored Felt of your choice
  • Colored Embroidery Floss of your choice
  • Poly fill
  • Small piece of ribbon
  • Scissors, Needle, Pen

  • Trace desired stencil on fabric and trace two of them one for front and one for back. (If you do not have a stencil print a picture cut that out and use that as a stencil.)
  • Cut out fabric
  • Begin sewing the pieces together. If you are talented with a sewing machine do it that way. I don't have a sewing machine so I did these by hand with embroidery floss/string. Place one over the other, thread your needle, use a simple stitch along the outside. 
  • Stitch all along the outside until you have just a small hole left. 
  • Fill with Poly Fill
  • Stitch Closed
  • When all three are completed use a small stitch to sew them together as you would like.
  • Add loop of ribbon at the top.
  • Hang where you would like.
