Felt (affiliate link) is one of my favorite materials to sew with, especially when making things for my kids. Craft felt (affiliate link) is inexpensive, easy to sew, doesn’t ravel, and comes in a variety of colors.
The gifts I have made my kids from felt have not only been fun to make, but they have been well-loved by them as well.
Here is a list of over 10 felt projects I have made for my kids. Maybe you will find a project to make for the kids in your life, too.
Felt Sewing Projects to Make for Kids
Back in 2007 I made car play mats for my two oldest boys. In 2014 I made an updated version for my nephew and a train version for my youngest son. Click here to follow my tutorial for making a play mat for the car or train loving little one in your life.
These little peg dolls were so much fun to make, and the felt sleeping bags I stitched up to go with them were very easy. I gave a set to my daughter and niece, along with the felt purse above. Click here to find out all of the details.
This felt mailbox and letter set was made for my son, but it has been a hit with all of my kids through the years. While this project isn’t as easy as most on this list, it was worth the time it took to make. Click here to find out all now I made it.
One piece of felt and some elastic are all it takes to make this colored pencil roll. The great part is the flap at the top that keeps the pencils in place when on the go. Click here for the tutorial.
I obviously have a thing for making different versions of my colored pencil roll. 🙂 This tutorial shows you how to make a marker roll as well as how to personalize a sketch pad. This makes a great gift for a budding artist. Click here to follow my tutorial.
I couldn’t have a post about felt without including instructions for how to make your own felt board. This felt board has seen a lot of use by my kids over the years. Find out how easy it is to make your own by clicking here.
One year I got a great deal on composition books and used felt to make covers for them to give as gifts to my kids. I also made felt pouches to go with them that held pens or pencils. Follow my tutorials by clicking here and here.
Bonus No-Sew Felt Projects
Here are a few no-sew ideas that you can make for your kids.
I made this felt Christmas tree when my little girl thought that it would be fun to undecorate our big tree. The felt tree could be decorated and undecorated as many times as she wanted and I didn’t have to worry. It is still a favorite item when I get it out each year. Click here to find out how to make one.
My grandma made this felt Christmas tree advent calendar over 30 years ago. It has stood the test of time. I sure wish I had a tutorial for you, but if you are crafty you can probably figure it out. Click here to find out more. (Note: There is a little sewing in this project so it isn’t entirely no-sew.)
