    • All stitching is done by hand – no sewing machine required
    • It’s easy to adapt the project as felt comes in a whole rainbow of colours
    • Only easy embroidery stitches are used: blanket stitch, straight stitch and whip stitch
    • A very straightforward project – one that an older child could make with a little supervision from an adult as a great introduction to crafting
    • Really easy to make as it doesn’t require many materials or equipment
    • Ideal for beginners who may not have made a softie before – an excellent first time soft-toy project
