When I saw the pattern to make a little felt raccoon, complete with raincoat and galoshes, in Cynthia Treen Studio’s Etsy shop, I couldn’t resist. I ended up stitching him up for my son’s seventh birthday (how is he already seven?). The pattern was fairly easy to follow, since I have made many three-dimensional felt figures before. This was a good thing, since I literally waited until the day before the Kiddo’s birthday to start making Mr. Raccoon, so I had one day to start and finish him. I don’t recommend that for your stress level.
Mr. Raccoon’s joints and body have pipe cleaners in them, so he is a bit pose-able.
The little boots and raincoat are the icing on the cake of cuteness with this guy, too.
His coat has a felt button, two actual pockets, and a drawstring hood. For Petey’s sake, how much cuter could that be?
Needless to say, the Kiddo loves him!
So does the cat.
