Crafters of all ages will enjoy making this adorable felt sheep craft. I mean, who doesn’t love a cute animal project? Here’s a quick tutorial for how you can create your own.

How to Make a Felt Sheep

Creating your own felt sheep is quick and easy; all you need are some basic craft supplies and about 15 minutes. Download the free pattern here.


  • white, black, and pink or red felt
  • scissors
  • google eyes
  • ribbon
  • Poly-Fil
  • glue
  • sewing machine and/or needle and thread
  • sheep pattern (free download)


Cut your felt pieces using the free pattern (or freehand your own).

You’ll need two body pieces from white felt, one head and two legs from black felt, and one heart from pink/red felt (optional).

Sew the body pieces together, stitching around the edges and leaving a small opening.

I used my sewing machine, but you can also hand sew, or even use glue for this step if you prefer.

Fill the sheep’s body with Poly-Fil.

Once you have it stuffed, sew the opening shut.

Assemble the rest of the sheep, gluing the pieces in place.

Glue the head on the front of the body and add a pair of google eyes. Glue the legs to the back of the body. Make a ribbon loop, and glue it to the back of the body so that you can attach your sheep to a key ring or use it as a hanging decoration.

You can leave your sheep just like this, or you can add a small felt heart as an added decoration.

Now, your sheep is ready to enjoy, display, or gift to a friend!

Crafting Tips

  • If you want your sheep to have a little more weight, try swapping the Poly-Fil for stuffing beads like Poly Pellets or even Glasslets weighted micro beads.
  • Feel free to personalize your sheep by using different colors, adding a smile with thread or fabric paint, and/or using other decorations like a bow.
  • Don’t stop at just one sheep, create a whole flock! Then, share them with your friends.
  • Hot glue is the best and quickest type of glue to use for assembling your sheep. However, if you’re working with kids, you may want to opt for craft glue instead.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I want a larger or smaller sheep?

No problem, just cut larger or smaller pieces! If you still want to use the pattern, just change your printer settings to print at a different size. Or, you can freehand your own pieces.

Is this craft for kids?

Sure! Crafters of all ages can create this project. I recommend that if you’re working with kids younger than three, you use fabric paint to create eyes instead of using google eyes, but otherwise, it’s totally safe.
