cuddly cuddle-buddies of cuddliness!!

I made some of these for my Newbie swap and now EVERYONE wants them!
They have been breeding like who-knows-what in our house, kids keep makin 'em!!!
We have since discovered some cream & brown cowprint fur fabric, so think there might be a whole new guineapig family moving in soon ;)

It looks like there's lots of steps, but they're actually super quick n easy.

Please post your versions.




  1. 1

    Gather your supplies

  2. 2

    Stitch around the edge with a running stitch (I only used black thread to show where you stitch, but it actually doesn't show so it's ok)

  3. 3

    Carefully pull your thread to gather your circle into a "cup"

  4. 4


  5. 5

    Finish tightening your thread in and finish off.

  6. 6

    Now comes the fun part!
    "Mould" till you are happy with the shape, longish with a rounder bottom end, or circular if you are going for more of a cute Tribble look :D

  7. 7

    Cut 2 ears (and a base, if u are using) from felt.
    The ears should be a sort of arched shape, the base a small oval.

  8. 8

    Take each ear in turn and fold in half lengthways then put a few stitches at the base, to give it a more realistic shape.

  9. 9

    Position ears and sew in place.
    Then attach your eyes.
    I've made a few of these and I've discovered that the little baby ones are cuter without a nose but feel free to add any other features you like.

  10. 10

    You're done!
    Except for the stroking and cuddling, of course!
