If you want to brighten up a child's room, then maybe this felt frog could be the answer. It requires a little bit of cutting and basic sewing, so older children could easily manage to make one by themselves. I used uncooked rice for the stuffing so that the frog is able to sit up properly and watch life pass by. This is a great hand made gift to sew for a friend's birthday.

Felt Frog
Draw a frog shape on paper


Method
Draw a basic "frog" shape on paper with your pencil. This will be the pattern template.

Cut out the paper template and pin it to (or trace the shape onto) your felt pieces.

Cut out two matching pieces of felt around the edges of the template.

Cut out different colored felt circle shapes to make spots for the frog.

Sew on spots and eyes


Using a needle and thread, sew on the frog's button "eyes" and the colored spots.

Pin the edges for sewing together


Depending on your sewing ability, either blanket stitch around the edges (as shown below) or turn the frog reverse side out, pin it together and backstitch along the edges, leaving a three centimeter gap at the end for the stuffing to go in.

If you used backstitch, now is the time to turn the frog the right side out.

Pour the uncooked rice into the gap. Try not to over fill the frog, so it can sit up easily.

Finish stitching the hole and welcome your frog into the world. Maybe it needs a friend? Or you might make a whole family of frogs to croak together.
