Even if you have not watched The Mandalorian on Disney+, you can’t have escaped the frenzy around The Child – aka Baby Yoda.

The Child is the cutest, most adorable baby character I have ever laid my eyes on and I am completely smitten!

  • Green
  • Brown
  • Black
  • Pink
  • Free printable template – link in the blog post


  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread
  • Sewing pins – optional


  • Print and cut out the template.

  • Trace the two circles onto black felt and cut out.
  • Trace the inner ear pieces onto pink felt and cut them out.
  • Trace the coat pieces onto brown felt and cut out.

    Cut Felt Baby Yoda Pieces
  • Stitch the black circle eyes to the head of one of the green pieces with black thread. You can add a couple of white stitches for "shine" in each eye if you like.
  • Lightly draw on a nose and mouth and stitch over with black thread.

  • Stitch the pink inner ear parts and the hair tuft in place using green thread.

    Stitched Mouth, Nose, Ears, and Hair
  • Place the two green pieces together and stitch the head parts together with green thread. You can use sewing pins to keep the felt in place if you wish. Do not stitch all the way around!

    Stitching Head Together
  • Use brown thread to stitch the collar to the top of one of the coat pieces to create the front of the coat.

    Assembling the Coat
  • Place the back piece of the coat behind the body and the front of the coat on the front side of the body. Pin in place if using pins.

    Laying Coat Pieces onto Body
  • Start to stitch the coat pieces together with the body leaving a gap for stuffing.
  • You can stuff Baby Yoda with scraps of felt (cut them into small pieces for an even stuffing) or use soft toy stuffing, or even cotton balls. Use a pencil to help guide the stuffing into all the sections evenly.

    Stitching Coat
  • Stitch the open end to secure the stuffing inside and tie off the thread with a knot.

    Finishing the sewing
  • Completed Baby Yoda Felt Plush
  • Your DIY Baby Yoda Plush is complete! I hope you love him!
