Make Cute Felt Monsters for Halloween

Make Cute Felt Monsters for Halloween

A fun project for kids this Halloween. Make these cute and cuddly felt monsters that they will love!

What you need

Felt, needle and thread, pencil, scissors, fabric glue.



Step-1: You can use a template and trace around the edges on a piece of felt, but I did free hand drawing. You can the whole body of the monster at once since it’s really simple. Draw and cut out the 2 similar sized and shaped piece out of the felt fabric, of any color if your choice.

Step-2: Place the same pieces together, one on the top of the other one. Prepare your needle and thread and start to stitch around the sides  to attach both pieces together.

Step-3: While stitching the sides don’t forget to keep a small open end. You can use wool or scrap felt to fill the felt monster through this open end. Stuff the monster nicely and evenly.

Step-4: After you’re done filling the felt monster push the stuffs in and stitch the open end to close it and secure the filling. Trim extra thread.

Step-5: Cut out the eyes, teeth, lips and a small heart out of felts. I used white and black felt for the eyes, lips and teeth. For the small heart I used pink felt for this monster and for another one I used red felt. Glue them on the monsters face to complete it. Use fabric glue to attach the parts on the face. Allow the glue to dry and enjoy!


  1. I have tried to print the little felt halloween dolls, but cannot get it to print anything except the first 2 pages that keep saying it is free to print, but does not print out the pictures or the instructions….

  2. this is a very cute project. i have a suggestion – one that i’ve used in making many stuffed animals and appliques from rayon and/or wool felt. put the felt yardage or squares in the washer and dryer before you cut it out or sew with it. doing this achieves two things that are especially useful for children. the felt shrinks a bit and takes on a really cool almost crinkled texture that adds a lot of interest and dimension. i used that technique to make dinosaur appliques for sweatsuits for my sons many years ago (so no pictures, sadly). the other benefit is that the item becomes machine washable and maybe dryable since the fabric has been ‘pre-treated’ to create that outcome. you don’t lose much square footage and the benefits are amazing!
