Sea Turtle Hand Stitching Felt Kit
Did you know that the Leatherback Sea Turtle is the largest of all the turtles? They are also the only turtle to not have a hard shell – which makes them rather appropriate for a felt kit, doesn’t it?
Difficulty: Intermediate, recommended for ages 12 and up. The techniques are simple but a few of the steps involve smaller pieces that require a bit of extra patience to assemble.
Dimensions: Finished Sea Turtles measure approx. 8" x 5" (21cm x 13cm).
Contents: Each kit envelope contains step-by-step photo illustrated instructions, paper pattern pieces, wool blend felt, 7mm safety eyes, chalk, embroidery floss, needle and pins.
Stuffing is not included as the finished piece is easy to stuff using scraps of felt or fabric cut into small bits, cotton balls as well as traditional stuffing.
*The felt provided is The Felt Store's Premium Wool Blend Craft Felt which is a blend of 30% wool and 70% rayon, recommended as a higher-quality craft felt or a great alternative to 100% wool felt. Wool Blend Craft Felt has a greater density of fibers, which provides both smooth, fabric-like texture and rich color. It also meets the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, making it safe for everyone.
This activity is not recommended for small children, but will make a great addition to their collection.
