How To: Make a Felt Starfish

This week’s How To was originally posted by one of our newest Natural Kids Team Members, Natalie. Welcome to the team and keep the crafty coming!

Autumn Starfish: Felt Inspiration

Inspired after posting my starfish photo I just had to make some Autumn Starfish out of orangey Wool Felt. And here they are!

And here’s a Pattern Starfish Template so YOU can make some too!

To make some wool felt starfish cut out 2 of the above pattern without a seam allowance (here is the full size pattern – just print it as is). Blanket stitch around and fill with a small handful of wool stuffing.

I have made my starfish with matching felt in orangey autumn tones, but of course starfish come in many other colours. They could be embellished too… fancy stitches, sequins, whatever you can dream up. I have left my starfish simple.

Here is another view of them:

Natalie has been making dolls from natural materials for ten years. Her shop, Woolhalla is stocked with Waldorf dolls, dollhouse dolls (so cute) and felt animals. Everything is “Designed & made by me, inspired by my children, friends and mother nature.”
