Felt Baby Name Banner - Hippo


Felt Baby Name Banner - Hippo

Do you remember how, almost a year ago, I wrote that each week I would upload a template for one of the felt animals from the banner I made for my son, so you could print it out, cut it out, and make your own baby name banner? No?

Well, I don't blame you. I wouldn't either...

If you need a little reminder, here is the original post: Felt Baby Name Banner for Nursery, and the marvelous hippo is the first one on the list.

The instructions for assembling the hippo are as follows:

Step 1 Choose the colour of the felt and the threads. A good general rule is to choose thread in a colour to match the felt. Then black thread is great for adding facial details.

Step 2 Print out the design in the size you want.

Step 3 Cut out the shapes in felt, using the paper template.

Step 4 Sew the nostrils (the small circular pieces) onto the nose piece (the oval piece).

Step 5 Sew small black beads onto a head piece to form the eyes.

Step 6 Adding the teeth, sew the nose piece onto the face piece with eyes.

Step 7 Take the two head pieces and sew around the edges to join them, adding the ears while sewing around. Leave a small opening to pack in some toy stuffing.

Step 8 Stuff the head and then sew closed.

Step 9 Take the two tail pieces and sew them together without adding toy stuffing.

Step 10 Take the two body pieces and sew around the edges, adding the tail while sewing. Leave a small opening to pack in some toy stuffing.

Step 11 Stuff the body and then sew closed.

Step 12 Sew the head and body together and be proud what you made:)

Important Note: There are two ways to sew the head and body together. The first option is to sew the head on top of the part where the neck part of the body piece should be. The second option is to not fully sew the head piece closed after stuffing, then to tuck "the neck part" inside the body and sew everything together, so that the neck part is inside the head.
