How to make

Step 1

Download, print and cut out the Llama template.

Start by folding the Aqua felt sheet in half, pin the llama body template to the felt and cut around the shape.

Step 2

Using the small circle template, pin and cut out from the white felt.

Add a nose and mouth shape to the white felt circle using the black embroidery thread and needle.

Step 3

Place the white circle on the front of the Llama face, using the black embroidery thread, stitch around.

Step 4

Using black emboridery thread add two eyes just above the white circle, using a French knot stitch, then add V shapes to the body of the Llama.

Step 5

Once happy with the design, cut a small 4cm piece of ribbon – this will be for the keyring loop.

Place the front and back pieces together and begin stitching, starting at the tail.

Continue to stitch all the way round, ensuring to sandwich the ribbon in between the felt pieces when you get to the top of the llama.

Step 6

Once you get close to where you started, use the toy filling to stuff. Carefully push the filling in to get it into the legs and neck.

Top Tip - a knitting needle is great for poking stuffing into small spaces.

Once filled you can then finish stitching up the llama.

Step 7

Add the keyring loop to the ribbon, and he’s ready to go!
