This cuddly winter companion has moving jointed front flippers and cute button eyes. It is so quick to knit using large size needles, then magically transformed into thick soft felt by a ride in your washing machine!

Each piece of the seal pup is stuffed before felting, the stuffing is compressed as the knitting shrinks to give a plump seamless finish.
This little Seal pup has traditional button eyes which twinkle above a cute embroidered nose and mouth.

Fully illustrated 7 page pattern guides you through knitting, felting, assembling your Seal Pup and adding the features.

(If you are gifting this bunny to a child please do not use buttons- embroidered eyes look great too, and the front flippers will still be jointed)

Felted Size - 30.5cm /12” long
