Felt Deer

I am co-hostessing a baby shower tomorrow for a friend at church. Alice is using browns and greens in her nursery with this wonderful bedding set. Given the forest animals and Fall season, we decided to use that as our theme for the shower, too. I made the invitations and a Baby Book/Memory album which we plan to give as a hostess gift.

Tonight, I tackled the last project-- the little deer that we want to decorate the table with. Plan A involved buying some of that really stiff felt, cutting out 2 pieces, gluing it together at the top, leaving the legs free so that the deer will stand up. Great idea, right? Well, did you know that you can't find that stiff felt in brown? I went to every store I could think of and no brown, stiff felt.

So, on to plan B.


1. Design a pattern, 2. Cut out felt deer parts, 3. Sew them together 4. And stuff. (not necessarily in that order). Well, it was a little bit more complicated than that, but not much. (the tutorial can be downloaded as a .pdf file here)

They turned out pretty cute! Tomorrow I'll post some pics of the shower decorations.

I am doing my baby shower in the same theme! I love the little felt deer. Do you sell these or have any more decorations that match that same bedding with the greens and browns? I am having the hardest time finding stuff to match this theme!
