Tiny Felt Creatures: The Perfect DIY Stocking Stuffer

I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for tiny versions of things. Little cups, mini pies, small embellishments—you name it, I have to have it. Needless to say, the palm-sized felt animal kits from Last-Minute Fabric Gifts author Cynthia Treen are right up my alley. How sweet are these little guys?

I don't have a lot of experience hand-stitching, but these little creatures looked too tempting not to try. Everything you need to craft (save scissors) comes wrapped up in a neat little box, perfect for taking on the go or gifting to a crafty pal. All you have to do is put on a good movie, cut the pre-sized fabric inside, and sew the pieces together following the step-by-step instructions provided.

And voila! In one evening I was able to whip up the kangaroo above (complete with removable baby kangaroo, as if it all wasn’t cute enough). Perfect for beginner or advanced sewists, Cynthia's kits are comprised of locally-sourced and recycled materials, reducing the carbon footprint. With the holidays around the corner, you’re just a quick last-minute fabric project away from a perfect stocking stuffer!
