Materials & Tools Used in This Craft
Full instructions are found in the printable tutorial card at the end of this post, but here is a quick outline so you know what to expect from the craft.
I highly recommend always reading everything all the way through before starting any project so you understand all the steps required.
- Felt Fabric in the following colors:
- Pencil or fabric marker
- Needle & Thread – try to match the thread to the felt colors
- Sewing Pins – optional to hold fabric together when sewing
- Soft Toy Stuffing – or scraps of felt or cotton wool balls
- Free Printable Baby Yoda Craft Template – find it before the tutorial card, surrounded by a purple box
The printable template has two sizes. One makes a mini plush, which is about 3½”/9cm tall, a one slightly taller one at about 5″/12cm.
