Select felt fabrics for the dinosaur plush and trace the template patterns on them. Cut out the traced patterns using scissors. The patterns include 2 bodies, 3 circles of teh same size for the body, 2 circles (1 big and 1 small) for the eyes and 1 zigzag bordered pattern.
Place black felt circle (small) on the white felt circle (big) and then place them on the head part of the dino body cutout.
Prepare needle with white thread and stitch a small white dot pattern on the black part of teh eye but making sure to stitch all 3 patterns (body, and 2 eye circles) together. Prepare needle with black thread again and stitch teh black part with teh rest of teh pattern. You won’t need to stitch the white circle of the eye as it is already attached with teh dino head part.
Take the plain body cutout of the dino and place the zigzag bordered cutout along the top side of the body cutout, by keeping the zigzag side facing outside. Make sure to overlap both pieces by half a cm.
Now place the eye stitched body cutout on the top of the plain one. Prepare needle with matching thread and start to stitch around the side to attach the 2 body cutouts together. Do running stitch along the part with the zigzag cutout.
For the rest of teh stitching, I did flat blanket stitches. Remember to keep a small opening before closing the stitch. You can use cotton or scrap felts for stuffing.
Keep stitching and stuffing until the whole felt dinosaur is stuffed.
Done stuffing? Close the open end with flat blanket stitches. Tie a knot, draw the needle inside the plush and then drawing it back out. Cut off extra thread. And done!
