Winter Friends Felt Keychains


Keychains, ornaments, stocking stuffers, nursery mobile and more! These little felt friends are very versatile and would make a great gift for the holidays! This winter set is my second set of keychains (the first set of Forest Friends can be found HERE) and includes a Christmas Tree, Snowman, Penguin and Mitten.

You will need to download this PDF template and use it to trace/cut out each piece from felt.

Get the Christmas Tree Template HERE.

 Be sure to cut two of each body part so you can lightly stuff it with poly-fil. I sewed the edges by hand using a tapestry needle and 2-ply yarn. The embellishments (eyes, nose, feet, etc.) are held in place with hot glue. The eyes and buttons were cut with a hole punch or a button was used. You can find a complete tutorial with pictures HERE.

Christmas tree could be just a plain pine tree or add some white felt and make it a snowy pine :)




Would you like to see more sets of Felt Friends? What animals/characters/objects would you like to see me make?!

  4. Very cute! I like how you sewed them instead of the traditional blanket stitch. I think a snow-covered pine tree would be a fun addition to the group!

  8. Hi Sarah, I’m Anne from Life on the Funny Farm (http://annesfunnyfarm.blogspot.com), and I’m visiting from Fantabulous Friday.

    These are fantastic! I always make one homemade gift for each of my (six) kids to open Christmas Eve, so I really like this craft!

    Anyway, thanks for posting this. If you’ve never visited yet, I hope you can pop by my blog sometime to say hi…
