Adding Felt to Amigurumi

amigurumi penguin

I followed a pattern from the amigurumi book El Mundo De Pica Pau. I wanted to add my own personal touch to the pattern. I decided to add a fuzzy beige colored felt to the face of my penguin. It was my first time ever using a fell stitch to add felt to my crochet. I definitely made a few mistakes while trying to keep the space between stitches even. I think these little imperfections add some character to my penguin!

I detailed all of the steps that I took to add felt details to my amigurumi bellow:

1. Gather Materials

Get together a few pins, thread, felt, scissors, needle, and paper. adding felt to amigurumi materials

2. Map out the shape of your felt on your amigurumi with pins.

I divided the stitches in half and marked out the width, height, and general shape that I wanted my felt to be.

4. Adjust the paper to the size of the pinned area.

5. Use the paper as a template for your felt pieces.

6. Pin the felt to your amigurumi. Attach the felt with the fell stitch.

I learned the fell stitch from this youtube video. It’s really easy to pick up!

Now you can add the finishing touches to your amigurumi!
