Adorable Felt Animal Ornaments

Handmade Felt Animal Ornament

Suzanne, my good friend and running buddy, recently surprised us with the most thoughtful gift.  She made a felt animal ornament that looks just like Sherman.

Sherman couldn’t believe the resemblance!


Suzanne made an elephant as a gift for a neighbor who gave her a rug that’s perfect for her family room.  Isn’t that jute tail adorable?

A second elephant is similar but has dots on her ears.

A primitive cat was Suzanne’s first felt animal project.  She’s too cute!

Sherman is most pleased with his mini me ornament and can’t wait for Christmas when it will proudly be displayed on our tree.

I am lucky to have a thoughtful and creative friend like Suzanne.

I wonder what she’ll create next?



  1. Love these! I think a Christmas tree full of these felt ornament would be so charming! I love how you made one for your dog. Such a great idea! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Suzanne recently told me you two were good friends! We used to live across the street from each other on Goodview. I loved her Rosemary bush 🙂 Love the ornaments especially the one for Sherman, it looks just like him, what a ham!

  3. These are adorable and so easily personalized. Love it!!

  4. The elephant is so cute! I can’t believe how simple this is! I know what I’m making my kids teachers for Christmas this year!

      They are simple to make, Shannah! I don’t really even sew, to be honest, other than a whip stitch (if that’s what that is!). Each one, for me at least, took about 2 hours to make. All those little stitches! Might want to start now if your kids have lots of teachers! Fun to make, though! Glad you like them!

  5. I love the resemblance to cute Sherman. How awesome would a bunch of these look on a little tree. Love it.

  6. These are so cute. I’d love one of those cats for my daughter.

  7. Paula these are adorable… I would love to have one of my mini doxy Emmitt… I will need to get sewing before Christmas and get it on the tree!!

  8. I don’t know which I think is cuter – the felt animals or your puppy!!!! 🙂

  9. Saw you at Homework, had to stop by and tell you I love the photo of the two dogs! Too adorable for words.

  10. These are really sweet ornaments. I love the pic of your dog with the felt ornament!

  11. The ornaments are absolutely charming!
