7 Of The Cutest Crafty Animals

1. Larry lamb

Meet Larry – the perfect accompaniment to a sunny springtime day! With his gorgeous loop stitch body and snazzy striped arms, this is one sheep that is sure to stand out from the flock! Pastel coloured yarns work perfectly for this project, but feel free to experiment with bright and bold shades – the sky's the limit!

2. Lobster

We admit that a lobster may not be the first creature that comes to mind when you’re thinking of cute animals. But take one look at our amigurumi friend, and you’ll be smitten! This adorable crochet sea creature is made up in a fabulous bright coloured yarn, like the Korbond DK Colour Shock Acrylic Yarn in Bright Coral. Remember to stitch the facial features close together to keep his expression super cute!

3. Snails

These garden critters are the perfect way to develop your toy making skills. You don’t have to make two, but look how cute they look as a pair! If you’re planning on displaying these lovebugs on a shelf, we recommend using a pretty vintage-inspired fabric like the Pinflair Fabric Pack.

4. Puffin

Want to try out a new craft while you’ve got some extra time? This adorable puffin is a great introduction to needle felting. Even a beginner can whip up this friendly bird in just one afternoon – check out our guide here. Remember that the needles are very sharp, so keep a close eye on where you’re working and keep your fingers out of the way!

5. Bunnies and chicks

Who doesn’t love a pom-pom? These Easter inspired animals are the perfect craft to do with kids. There’s a little bit of sewing involved in this project, so it’s a great way to introduce a needle and thread to kids who are old enough to use them safely.-m If you want to make these fluffy pals with your little ones, check out the tutorial here.

6. Chicken cushion

Looking for some animal-inspired home decor? This cute chicken cushion is the perfect addition to any country kitchen or relaxed conservatory. You could even stuff the cushion with a heavier filling such as dry rice to create an adorable doorstop. Check out Debbie Shore’s simple step-by-step tutorial for this project here.

7. Papercrafting cuteness

If soft crafts aren’t your thing, never fear – you don’t have to miss out on the animal goodness! Papercrafting opens up a whole world of animal crafting – simply find a paper collection featuring your favourite cute creature (we recommend the Hunkydory Foxy Fun Paper Pad), and let your imagination do the rest!
