Black Felt on Ears

There should be (FOUR) 4 pieces of black felt in the shape of the template shown below.

2 for each ear, front and back.

The template should have about 0.5 cm more felt around the edges compared to the crocheted ear. This allows room for the felt to overlap over to the otherside and join with the felt piece in the back.

Begin using a felt needle fasten it in place

TIP: in the beginning only poke it a few times to at least keep it in place but allow further adjustments if its not completely aligned as you continue.

NOTE: Do not worry if the felt pieces are not staying in place on the edges. Once the front and back felt pieces are secure on the ear, use a sewing needle and black thread and whip stitch (google it! :D) the edges together

Repeat R1-13 to make 2. Next sew the 2 together. This Will allow the tail to be sturdier.


Assemble Limbs

Begin assembling the limbs by first using pins to place each one in the right place. Once you are ready, use a tapestry needle and begin threading each limb to the body and head.

Felt Pieces

Now that all the parts are made, Begin making templates for the felt pieces

  • Eyes (black)

  • Catch Light (the white dot in the eyes)

  • cheeks (pink)

  • front collar (black)

  • back color (black)

Once all felt pieces are cut out begin placing them onto the body. Begin poking each of the pieces with a felt needle to fasten them in place.


take a small piece of embroidery thread with a tapestry needle and thread the mouth in place.

NOTE: I did not use the black yarn because it looked too thick.

Enjoy your creation! I made this around the time of Chinese New Years and conveniently it was year of the Rat!

Hope you like it!

Stay safe everyone.
