Felted Stuffed Animals
These petite stuffed animals -- a Fair Isle lamb, a cable-knit chicken, and an argyle pig -- are so cuddly and simple to make, you'll want a menagerie. The toys, which range in height from 5 to 8 inches, are each assembled from a few basic felt pieces and plumped up with batting. Appendages, such as floppy ears or wings, are easily added during sewing. Wrap up the woolly creatures to give to your favorite tots, or use them as stocking stuffers.
